Was defrosting the car the other day and noticed that the heaters werent working and the electrics were cutting out after a while of the car being on (this had only started happening while the car was on idle so was never actually driven before it started showing any symptoms)

anyway popped the bonnet and noticed that the Aux belt wasn't turning and that there was very little tension in the belt, got under it yesterday and found that the crankshaft pulley has came away from the centre section (after a search on here i now realise that it's a fairly common problem with the rubber perishing over time)

pic below showing whats happened (somehow the Aux belt is still on the inner part of the pulley)


first thing i'm wondering is if theres any chance that this could have affected the cambelt timing ? worth getting it checked or not directly related ?

secondly i was just wondering if anyone knows who does the best price for an OEM pulley ? only price i've found so far is camskill at £153.14

cheers :smthumbup

yeh theres no damage to the surrounding area (lower cambelt cover) but i wasn't sure if the cambelt would be affected as i'm not sure what the pulley setup is behind the cover and where/what pulleys it runs off at the bottom

cheers mate, what's the benefit of fitting one from a later model (is the pulley any different) ? guessing the 7/8/9 runs the same setup/pulley ? or is that just to get as best condition as possible buying second hand ?

think i would rather buy new to be on the safe side

Lower mileage 2nd hand then the better mate, but you can get a decent 2nd hand one.

of course, its your call.

cheers

my only issue with that is surely there will be more vibration due to it being solid, the rubber ring must be there for a reason ?

Here's some pics of mine i'm just about to put for sale :

cheers

cheers Andy, got your e-mail aswell. I'll keep it in mind but i'm looking to buy new atm

you was very lucky there
dont buy a 2nd hand one it will only go the same way and possible do this next time
yeh i was lucky i spotted the fault while the car was stationary and only idling, if it had happened while travelling at 70mph i'm sure it could have ended up nasty like in the pics you posted

i'll get in touch with a few of the traders on here tomorrow and see how much they can do the pulley for, anyone got any other suggestions on who to try ?

i asked about solid lightweight pulleys recently, if you want an after market go for a fluidampr,, the oem crank pulley is designed to be balanced and run on the crank, fitting a solid lightweight one you would need the whole crank setup re-balanced, it is not healthy to just stick on a lightweight pullet. ill try fink the link.

cheers for that mate, yeh thats what i had thought. If i was planning on going for big power/engine mods then it would be a possibility but i'm only going to be going for mild mods and trying to keep it as standard as possible (uprating where i can along the way)

will try and phone about some of the traders for a price on an OEM pulley
