    Hi All. I replaced my timing belt a few weeks ago and the car (2003 147 2.0 TS with 117,000k) is running well. I thought I would double check the tension though to ensure I got it right. I discovered that it is tensioned correctly (indicator needle pointing roughly at the dot) however when...

    Hi Had to get recovered from the M1 due to aforementioned parts giving up. Problem is I am now stuck in Hemel Hempstead and now need these parts replacing. Anyone know of a specialist nearby? Or even a half decent trustworthy garage? Obviously prefer to go with recommendations on these things...

    Canny tension up the belt correctly as I don't understand the tensioner:o Put it on then it says set moving pointer to maximum tension, however this appears to slacken the belt tension and to boot the thing just pings back to its starting point. I canny be the first person to have difficulty...

    what is approx cost separately to replace rear pads - aux belt tensioner + presumably belt (any other essential parts, bearing in mind trying to keep cost low at the mo) Getting dry scoury noise, which started off only when aircon was engaged by switch - now all the time..fairly sure it would...

    Hello I am hoping someone can advise on the method to re-adjust the new timing belt tensioner on my 156 V6 24V, 1999 model. I have installed the new belt and adjusted the tensioner to the mark with the pulleys free on the taper seats of the cams. I have then removed the cam locks and turned the...

    Hello everyone! I have a nice 166 2,0 V6 TB -98 which is extremely rare in sweden. It's time to do a timing belt change. I have been looking around for a tensioner on various sites and pages, but i have found nothing for my particular engine. My question is simply: Is the tensioner the same on...

    Hi Folks I'm hanging my nose over a 3.2 Brera, I'm told it has a cam chain tensioner that requires changing, is that an easy job ? Do they fail often or is it a sign of other problems Many thanks

    cam belt and water pump done and the car is still making this stupid 'wooshing' sound at start up - until it's a little bit warmed up. Originally thought it was going to be the tensioner. Can't see any splits in hoses neither. :cry::cry:

    ive got a 159 ti thats done 27000 and it sounds like one on the pulleys is squeaking. i figure its either the tensioner or the aircon, but the pitch doesnt change when i switch the aircon on. has anyone had one replaced before, if so how much? thanks :)

    How exactly do you tension up the cam belt on the 1.9 8v, as it slids up and down on a rail but also has a tension nut too??

  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Is it possible for someone who knows what they are doing to tell if the cambelt tensioner is knackered - either visually or acoustically - without taking the whole belt assembly apart - a ten minute check or something? thanks
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Finished fitting a cam belt, tensioner, idler, water pump on a 156. Before putting the cover and aux belt on I wanted to check it was running ok, which it is perfectly, it purrs! Only thing I have noticed is the cam belt tensioner pointer does a little dance with the engine running. I imagine...
