Re: Fitting a new fan belt
Remove the fan shroud cover and draw the fan belts route, loosen the aircon tensioner bolts x 3 on the left side of the cover and remove the aircon belt.With a 15 mm socket on a power wrench pull the auto tensioner to the rightand remove the belt , with a little skill and patience you can get the old belt off and the new one on over the fan blades without removing the fan.Make sure the belt is on properly to prevent it coming off when starting.

yes it will and most likely put a hole in the piston and snap the cam shaft if the engine is doing any more than idle speed, if it breaks at idle you may be lucky and just get away with a few bent valves but if im honest ive never seen anyone be lucky with one the normaly require a new engine. also worth changing the water pump at the same time as these do seize and will snap the new cam belt ! the only belt you can get away with leaving is the pump belt if this breaks no damage is caused the engine will just cut out ! however you will need to pretty much remove it after fitting a cambelt to set the timing so its pretty pointless no to change it
remove top of fan cowling 2 clips draw a diagram of belt route put spanner on tensioner pulley bolt turn clockwise remove belt with assistant helping keep tensioner pulled back fit new belt over pulleys release tensioner onto belt refit cover
is the right belt fitted?its seems from what you are saying this belt is to small? check this out and check chassis number against new belt ref number;; if the wrong belt is fitted as you say then indeed it will pull the bearings in the alternator and run them out;as for the belt run this is a straight forward.let me know the out come.adrian
