Aux Drive Belt Changing
Having a spot of bother changing the Aux Drive Belt and Tensioner on a 1998 Scenic 2.0 (F3R 796 engine +PAS+AC).
I can't see (a) how to release the belt tension, and (b) how the actual tensioner works.
My Haynes manual is not very helpful and has no pictures or diagrams for my particular engine model.
The new tensioner has a toothed gear on one side and comes with a new Allen Key bolt.
Can anyone enlighten me on how I change the tensioner and belt.
Currently in victic's garage:
2001 Scenic 1 P2 2.0 16v Privilege, 1998 Scenic 1 P1 2.0 RXE Manual, 2002 Rover 25 IE 1.4 16v 2dr, 2000 Ford Focus Mk1 1.8 4dr. Ahh Variety be the spice of life!!
