Changing auxiliary belt easy/hard
#1
I have a Citroen berlingo van 2003 1.9d the auxiliary belt has snapped off just need to know if they are hard or easy to change. Any advice or tips on how to do it ?

Quite easy. Just a word of advice. Take the cambelt cover off and check for stray bits of belt. They quite often get in there and cause the cambelt to jump.

Thanks it was really easy to do. Got another question the van has always been gutless since I have had it I no they are slow but is there anything I can do to squeeze anymore power out of it ?

The only thing I can suggest is go on a diet, chuck all the junk out of the van and get used to admiring the scenery as you go serenely by.
Are we there yet????? Huh

Essentially no .... I'm assuming it has clean air and fuel filters with good timing belt and brakes are all free.

Basically no !

Drive the torque curve, maintain momentum whilst looking ahead and " accelerate " in advance rather than with a more powerful vehicle doing it when you want / need to.

get the right belt.

there are a few different sizes for the 1.9D and Euroshitparts has them listed wrongly.
