    Hello all, I need to fit a new auxilary belt and tensioner to my 96 model 145 cloverleaf. My model does not have the aircon. I have ordered the part and should be here on saturday. I was hoping that someone could advise me of the best way of fitting it anf whether there are any special tools...

    I've just parked up the 146 with the timing belt tensioner sizzling and rattling in it. Initially I thought I heard something at higher revs but only 20 miles later its there at idle too. It could go at any moment and the sound is getting worse by the minute. Word of warning - this is the...

    As the title really. I have a 3ltr V6 engine fitted to a kit car and when warm the tensioner rattles like a robotic toddler in a dustbin. You can see the thing shaking as if the oil pressure has gone mad but I've fitted a mechanical pressure gauge and it's as steady as a rock at 50psi. Sometimes...

    I'm currently carrying out a cam belt change on my '89 75V6. I'm converting from the hydraulic tensioner to the mechanical one as advised by EB spares. Everything's going to plan, however, how do I remove the oil-feeding stud that the tensioner mounts on. Is it threaded, if so right or left...

    On the quest to find what's the whinning noise in my engine i removed the cambelt cover. On the adjustable tensioner assembly there are 2 rollers. One metallic with teeth and one plastic that runs on the back side of the belt. The plastic one that runs on the back of the belt surface seems to...

    I finnaly got round to putting the balance + tensioner on today, pretty lucky really as when I flipped it inside out it was showing signs of fraying and breaking loose:eek: Anyway I think I'll leave the Cam Idler wheel as the one on the car is steel And the new one I bought last year with...

    Or does the revised maintenance schedule only apply to the Cam belt and tensioners (and balance belt and tensioner on the two litre)? :confused:
  9. Alfa 164 & 166
    So I was on my way to work this morning, crawling along in stop/start traffic when I heard a huge 'clunk' from the front end followed by a loss of power steering. I managed to pull into a side road and (not being much of a mechanical expert) called the RAC who came out very promptly despite it...

    I have a 2001 156 2.4 JTD. It has a squeak/squeal that is fairly constant at tickover but that disappears at driving speeds. This has now been joined by a whirring noise that goes up and down in line with engine revs. Looking at the auxiliary drive belt it is clear that a spline/2 or 3mm has...

    I have just ordered and received a cambelt kit from Alfashop for a 2 litre TS and the tensioner is a white plastic type affair. I am aware that this part has been revised due to failures, and was under the impression that the latest revision was an aluminium one. Is it still ok to use this...

I was thinking about it last week,why hasn't somone made...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Has anyone changed their Auxilliary tensioner and how hard/easy is it. This will be the 5th one in a year, the others have all been done in an Alfa Dealership. It sounds like it is about to go again so I have ordered a new one and will have a go at changing it myself. Any guidance would be...

    Hi there I have a 156 Sportswagon, and I have heard that in 2002 TSB (Technical Service Bulletins) issued a recall notice saying that timing belts and tensioners should be changed at 36,000 miles instead of 72,000 miles. Has anyone else heard this? Our local garage are saying that it needs to...

    :confused: Any one come across problems with these? My 156 SW ate its alternator belt a few weeks ago. Problem was traced to the bolt that secures the tensioner pulley. The bolt had sheared and showed signs of rust in what appeared to be a defect in the threaded section. Luckily the remains...

    Just back from 147 36K dealer £ervice. As I was not sure they did everything last time I made a few tippex marks. What I want to know is what has to be taken off to do the 36k visual timing belt check? I presumed the black cover to the left of engine next to water header tank would have to come...

    Hi, Is this a common failure? I went on a 3 day road trip on the west of Ireland and was enjoying the twisting hill roads after two days of pure driving enjoyment I get into my car to head back for Dublin and 2 minutes into teh journey I hear a mechanical sound like something breaking or...

    Does anyone know if the V6 cambelt tensioner is self adjusting. I'm just trying to work out why mine collapsed after 8K and less than 10 months. Wondered if they had overtightened/tensioned it?
