Sorry not to be of any help, but my berlingo has exactly the same fault, tensioner seems all cock eyed! Will be having a go at it over the next couple of days! No idea how to get it out, the pully bearing seems fine, its the arm it attaches to thats the problem. Hopefully some advice will be along shortly to help us both.

If it is broke or faulty, they are not cheap to replace.
Up to £100 for the kit!

Ah. Didn't realise it was an early model. Correct, they are cheaper.
And cheaper for the 2.0HDi, too.
Again we see that those of us with the 1.6HDi have the higher priced parts!
But the more economical and refined engine. :whistle:

Same here, a good job done, with the help of my mechanic brother in law, and the use of his bosses garage after hours, we had it done within the hour. Not as bad a job as I was expecting. :thumbsup:
