SE Turbo air con belt

Recommended Posts

I ordered a new air con belt for my rebuild project  from SJ Sportscars.  (The car came without a belt fitted)  When it arrived it was too short to fit.  I contacted SJ and (after he had stopped being condescending and insisting that it was the right belt), advised me that the only way to fit it is to remove the crank pulley, fit the belt round the compressor pully and then refit the crank pulley with the belt in the grove.  Before I lose any more skin, can anyone tell me if they have done it this way.  It still looks too short to me..........................

The only way I could get my air con belt off was to take it off with the crank pulley after loosening the air con belt tensioner wheel all the way!

I put it back the same way in reverse (pulley on compressor wheel and then belt with crank pulley together) so I would say SJ's is right. It is tight on there.

I think I usually remove the AC belt tensioner assembly and I think I probably remove the AUX pulley on the crank, slip the belt over the AC pulley and the AUX pulley, slide the AUX pulley on the crank, and then force the AC tensioner back on and under the belt.  Then tighten everything down.
