Question about 1997 Saab 900
Can i tighen this?
The Saab accessory drive belt is self-tensioning by means of a tensioning pulley. The excessive play means that your current belt is spent and must be replaced. It is a very good idea to replace this pulley at this time as the bearings fail over time. You can get an aftermarket pulley of machined billet aluminum construction with a repalceable bearing race from Wazee Pulleys. This pulley is superior to the stock one in just about every conceivable way. You will need a 1/2 inch socket extension bar that will fit exactly in the top of the tensioning pulley housing and a six mm allen key. This site shows the proper routing of the stock belt and the routing procedure to bypass the highly failure prone center idler pulley if you so elect, as well as the procedure to remove and fit a new belt. Note, the belts shown on this site are for the short-belt modification only. The stock replacement belt is Part Code: 4904728
Description: Serpentine belt for any 94-98 NG 900 4cyl.
