I have a 1999 Skoda Felicia magic, reg no V267 HGG, with power steering but no a/c, with a drivebelt that needs repalacing. Neither the Haynes manual nor my local garage can tell me how first to slacken and remove it and then to re-install and retension. I am mystified because the alternator appears to have two fixed bolts rather than the upper one being in a sliding groove. kind regards, XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX
Thank you, Shantal, there is no hurry on this one, and if it is too hard, please just refund via Paypal the £21 I have paid.
Kind regards, Andrew
Thanks for your reply- it must be automatic tensioning.I had a crack at it this afternoon, but couldn't move any of the five wheels, not surprising for the four that serve the crankshaft, the water pump, the power steering and the alternator. The space is also very limited for getting spanners on - there is one teardrop hole in the inner wing quite high up but the revealed nut was very stiff and seemed to hold the upper engine mounting. There is a small smooth wheel at the top which does not serve anything but pushes the belt down before it runs to the alternator -this seems the obvious one to make changing easy but it seems immoveable and attached to the alternator...help!
