As I have no idea when the auxillary belt on my car was last changed I have bought a new one to fit on.

How easy is this to change?

I would imagine the change itself is straightforward enough, but that access is a bit limited?

Has anyone done one themselves?

Many thanks.

Belt change can be done from the top end but your knuckles probably won't appreciate it. Just jack up drivers front, lock wheel over and remove the small inner arch panel. There is one awkward 10mm nut but otherwise fairly easy. I believe there're two belt sizes depending on year so look on your existing belt for the size(e.g 6pk1450) 1450 is belt size in mm.

I dont know the milage of your car. But the manual states that is should be changed at 105k km. You are probably aware of this!

In that case it is overdue... It has has the cambelt and water pump done though.

It actually looks ok so I might risk it until the weather warms up a bit.

You would think so, but I bought the car from a regular dealer, not an Alfa specialist and they did the cambelt and waterpump but refitted the old Aux belt. :banghead:

They only cost around £10 :ranting:
