For interest for all M113K owners only.
This kit is used and has been on the car for about 6k miles. All the bearings are in perfect working order.
This was my second pulley kit as the first suffered wear in the bearing seat. This meant changing the bearing became impossible. So when I...
I have a spare idler pulley set for the M113K engine. The s/c idler pulley is subjected to significant sideways force and this leads to wear on both the bearing and internal wall of the pulley.
Often when you come to replace the bearing a perfect fit can no longer be achieved as the internal...
As the title suggests I need the torque figures for the drive belt tensioner and idler pulleys on my E220 CDI W211. I am replacing them along with the drive belt but the Haynes manual does not include either the procedure or torque loadings for the tensioner or idlers.
Since I bought my E55 I knew the idler bearing had some play on it. I have had the press and bearing for a while but decided today was the day to get it sorted.
Got it off and pressed the bearing out to be greated with this site
I cant understand what the person who did this thought he was...
With the top mounting bolt removed, is it normal to be able to remove the metal bush from the rubber surround?
My instincts say no, but at the same time the strut only needs to take out forces in bearing, so does it matter providing it's a snug fit (which it is).
I have a squeaking/squealing/screeching noise coming from the engine at idle. It disappears as soon as revs increase.
I cannot pin-point the source of the noise with a bit of hose to my ear, however when I press down on the idler pulley assembly with a bit of wood on the damper...
Not been a happy bunny for the last 2 weeks as the car has been off the road due to the idler pulley for the fan belt breaking in half, a common problem on these im told.
Luckily i had only just started the car and was only a mile or so away from home. Could have been a lot lot worse if it...
I have one set of these for sale, brand new never fitted. They are lighter than the stock part but more importantly contain ZZ rated bearings. £ 245 including shipping. (sorry used the stock photo as my camera is busted)
hi all 3 years now with a Mercedes yesterday the alternator belt snapped how do i remove the idler as it`s split in half and i have a new one coming with the belt me and the wife love to drive this relaxing car
thanks in advance :dk:
Yesterday I noticed a nasty rattle at idle.
Found that the bolt that holds the idler pulley damper to the tensioning lever had gone, so the shock was swinging loose and pulley was bouncing around.
Today I removed the shock & spring and have rotated the lever enough to get a new bolt in place...
Does anyone know what this is? I recently replaced this / greased it but realised after the event I forgot to look up the correct torque before starting! Now getting a slight creaking from it when turning the wheels at low speed and wondering if I've over-torqued it...
Bought this car, 2 days ago, so far spent the following;
1 off serp idler pulley
1 off serp idler damper
then I discover the crack in the rocker
1 off serp belt rocker £30.50 M17130
1 off serp belt £8.75 M13360
and while I'm at it a new hood ornament because the old one was floppy £16.60...
This is the aluminium jobbie that the LOWER end of the damper and spring attach to.
I have noticed mine has a small hairline crack on the outside web at the damper end.
I've ordered a replacement from GSF, due in tomorrow.
Question is this, I have popped off the cover and can't quite see what...
The bearing went on one of the fan belt idler's, not an uncommon occurence, except that it pushed the belt off course before the pully left the spigot, causing the belt to momentarily rub against the plastic fuel pipes routed between the end of the head and the belt, just long enough for it to...
To be clear this is non-turbo straight six diesel in a 1986 W124 body as a 300D. Just purchased by me.
Has the rattle and looking down from above has the "skewed" idler pulley in support of previous owners suggestion that same was on the way out.
Purchased from GSF one M17110 (GSF...
