I’ve been waiting for an improvement in the weather to replace the auxiliary belt (or serpentine belt as it’s also known as). I was reliably informed by a member of the 260 forum that it is a quick and straight forward job …… and they were right.
I ordered the kit from America and it arrived in just a few days. It included the belt, idler pulleys and tensioner.
Basically all you need is a 3/8″ square ratchet to release the tensioner and a couple of spanners. I re torqued the bolts on refitting to 25Nm. You need to make sure the surface behind the tensioner is clean. Checked I had refitted the belt correctly ……. and job done!
