Just done the timing belt everything went well until I came to try and fit the stretch belts back on. The crank pulley had two belts on. Back belt drives water pump alternator and power steering front belt drives the ac compressor. Anyone got any tips for getting them back on? This is  now holding me up finishing the job 😞 have seen a tool that looks like it bolts to waterpump pulley and that walks it on but price not so good. I know when I done a fiesta the new belt came with a piece of metal that slipped on the crank to pull the belt on but this was a single track pulley.  Thanks in advance

I had to use this tool to do it on my old car https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254728519511?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=qq-O3AJoSV6&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=7Sl-KwUsRoG&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY and followed this guide 

 

1, Wipe clean all of the pulleys to make sure that the accessory drive belt does not slip during installation

 

2,CAUTION: Make sure that the accessory drive belt guide tool is correctly fitted to the crankshaft pulley. The center of the accessory drive belt guide tool must be in the 12 o'clock position and the curved face is closest to the engine. Failure to follow this instruction may result in damage to the accessory drive belt during installation. Install the accessory drive belt guide tool (supplied in the parts kit) to the crankshaft pulley so that the center of the tool is at the 12 o'clock position (engine shown removed for clarity).

No sorry I'm in Scotland. The tool makes it easier to get it done and avoids warping the belt

Just as an update for others who stumble across this. I ordered the Dayco kit from Euro's and it came with the above mentioned install tools. So you get the 2 belts and the 2 tools for 43.99. Job done and fired up after the timing belt change.

 

Have got an oil leak that is dripping down onto the compressor was already wet with oil there wil post up some pictures but left phone at home so cannot do that now. Will start a new thread.
