Hey, Hopefully someone could give me some advice!
Basically my sistesrs fella broke down on the motorway yesterday and the tensioner pully burnt out and cause the belt to obviously fall off. I had it jacked up before, removed the old belt and out popped the pulley, and also the actual tensioner housing, now for the life of me I cannot get the tensioner back on, I've got the engine supported by a jack all the way up so i can at least access it from the top. its held on by a nylon like washer and a same sized metal washer with a "star drive" cut out which holds the tensioner in place.
Any advice would help, iis virtually impossible to be able to set the tensioner in place, push it with the spring force against you and somehow put the securing washer on without it all twanging apart. is there a special tool? and even just trying to put the metal washer on to secure it without the actual tensioner there it doesnt even seem to click into place just falls off!!
Much appreciated if anyone could help!
