Opinions please. My water pump is noisy. If was fitted before I got the car with a new timing belt. I've checked the parts and they appear to be correct for the vehicle. The belt seems too tight between the pump and camshaft sprocket. Can barely get it to turn 90 degrees, but the water pump is adjusted as far clockwise as it will go, I can't get it any slacker. Any ideas from anyone?
timing belt change on the afh it seems the drive pulley which sits on the crank pulley covers a little of the timing belt tensionor bolt which doesn't allow a torque wrench to go over the bolt. it's a daft design if im right, it means you have to take off the drive pulley , undo the alternator tensioner, take off drive belt. anyone here done a belt change on afh?
Hi all, when I bought my 6n (1.4 CL) the bloke I got it from told me his father had done the timing belt in 2016 at what can only be 10K miles ago. He had No receipts or anything to prove but being a silly youth I bought the car. It has now occurred to me that the timing belt to me does not look all that “fresh”. Has a kind of thin zebra pattern on the back of the belt buT I can still read the Print. See pics attached, is changing the belt a hard job? My Haynes manual always makes jobs seem more complicated than they really are. Cheers in advance
Hello tihis is my first post and this is my first cage a 96 polo 6n1 1.4 8v AEX... My question is. i recently changed the timing belt and water pump and tensioner with a Gates kit... with the old stuff the belt run off set on the top pulley and still does it with the new kit is this normal on this model..? the new belt also now whines when the engine is hot, the tensioner was set at the middle of the notch after the bolt... Thanks in advance
