Auxillary belt

Post by stevecryne » Sat Jun 19, 2021 2:23 pm

Hi
I'm looking for some help taking my Air Con Compressor off. I've had a look but can't see how to take the tension off and lock the auxillary belt tensioner in place, to allow play in the belt for removal? it's different from old Astra models I've had, and I can't find anything on line. I'm sure it's obvious/easy once you know how, I think Someone out there knows and can help, Please!
Thanks!
StevieCee

It looks as though it's just a spring loaded pivot around the single fixing bolt

Rotate the drive belt tensioner (1) counterclockwise by using an extensional tool or suitable tool and hold tension

Hi
Ouch, sounds like a recipe for potential sore fingers
