Great news, glad you got it sorted. I'm sure it will be up to the same standard (if not better) as your last one in no time :)

In Topic: W Reg Ka 1.3 - Manual Or Automatic Belt Adjuster?

01 April 2015 - 12:04 PM

Delboy: I planned to do the job the same day, so I was looking for over the counter part, but the price put me off buying there and then. As I saw the the big difference in price between over the counter and on line, I postponed changing the belt.

I didn't ignore anyone ;)

However, I would be interested to know if the patterned part I mentioned was the right size for a KA. Once you add VAT and delivery to £18, one is not far off the over the counter price any way.

I would prefer OEM parts when it comes to belts, but at least if an auxiliary belt snaps it doesn't mean bent valves. Although stearing may become a challenge! :P


According to the information there, that belt will fit. Worst case you then take it back for a full refund, but it will fit anyway.


No dobt someone will now come along and rubbish what I've just said, but I'm right, so...

That looks amazing.


The favoured security device on this forum at the moment seems to be a steering wheel lock. There is also a thread going discussing trackers. 

In Topic: Engine Flush Before Oil Change

Never flush an engine, can reveal more problems than it can solve. Regular oil changes using top quality oil is the best thing for an engine.
