Hi guys,

Just bought a '99 156. I know it's going to need a new cam belt for it's 108,000 miles service, but apart from that I could do with any tips anyone can offer!

Cheers

Matt

Lower control arms tend to get tired quickly. Sounds like a squeak behind the dashboard

yeah I heard that from another thread - I can't hear the squeak though so good news.

The fan belt squeeled a bit first time it started - do you know if that's expensive to replace?

Thanks!

Enjoy it bud, just don't ignore things. It will let you know if summats up, just the all important belts and bushes and all will be cool :D

Its a polyvee belt with a tensioner, so no worse than any other modern car - the squeak will just be a warning, as when they actually slip the screech is world ending. It also runs the steering, air con and (I think) water pump - so you'll know if and when it goes.
