Two days ago i had a problem with my car, with steering and battery charging..I thought at the beginning that the belt is broken and went yesterday in the nearest service..but the craftsman told me that the bottom, tensioner roller is lost; it's was replaced in 2002 , before 40.000km (~25.000m)..in that time the roller was manufactured from aluminum because local shop's didn't have the roller.Yesterday I went to Ford service, but they told me that car is very old (1996) and now by Ford exist only expensive (220Eu) complete tensioner with roller, and separately only overhead plastic roller. I'm in confusion because my original overhead roller is from steel, isn't plastic. My car is 1.3i/50HP,EFi OHV, first user buy car in Germany, on July 1996 ; car have 1 belt and hydraulic steering(pump), alternator and cooling pump, without climate system. I need help with information if exist roller from another car which can be built on tension shaft. Can I built any roller fi70mm x 21mm(25mm) ?? I've threw original broken roller and lost picture of manufactured roller.
I need correlation between ribbed belt long and overhead and bottom rollers diameter.
regards and sorry about bad grammar..
