tensioner pulley
#1
Following on from my last question, I'm thinking about replacing the other pulleys, the pulley on the tensioner just looks like it's bolted on, is it OK to just replace the pulley, or should I go  for a new tensioner assembly? 

Thanks again.

The tensioner pulley comes as part of the tensioner assembly from Citroen, but there are sellers on ebay just selling the pulley if you search on the part number. I did a fair bit of investigation a few weeks ago but decided to leave things alone until the weather gets a bit warmer. The part number will be on the catcar page, put that into ebay.

Thanks again, you don't see a problem just replacing the pulley, rather than the whole tensioner?

TBH, I don't know the answer. The belt tension is released by turning the bolt that holds the pulley clockwise so it's probably quite tight but beyond that, it's a bolt holding a pulley much the same as the idler, probably a bit of threadlock would help. The main difference is the price so far as I can see.

On some models, it's shown separately and is the same bolt as the idler roller.

Hi -did both on ours last year - one of them was 'whizzy' after some very wet weather, I couldn't work out which it was, so just got two and swapped them out - no problem with the tensioner one other than securing the tensioner with something thin & non bendy so that there was no excess leverage on the spring.

Did the same at the same time to the Renault but used cr*ppy pulleys (Berlingo got Gates) and one of the cheap ones died after only a few thousand miles and lost the V belt (buy cheap buy twice as the missus tells me)
