how to change top ribbed pully on x type 2.2 diesel


Recommended Posts

iv'e just done the same job last sunday 
to change the top pulley you need to take the alternator off so you can access the bracket the pulley is attached to which also enables you to get the tensioner off 

to get the tensioner and top pulley out through the wheel arch it makes the job a lot easier if you undo the top bolt of the drop link so you can move it out of the way , you'l see what i mean when you try to get it out 🙂

the other pulley is a pig to get off because there isn't enough room engine to inner wing to get it off the bolt, you need to take the engine mount off and under tray so you can put a trolley jack under the engine to lower / raise it to get the damn thing off 

remember to feed the aux belt through the tensioner pulley before you bolt it all back together there isn't enough room once it's bolted into place 

good luck...
