    Just wondering if anyone has changed their alternator belt themselves before, Mines got a slight squeek and its annoying me more and more, so ive just looked on ebay and you can pick one up for £8. Just need to know how to fit it it now??

    Any ideas??

    Cheers Tim

    Ive done mine, Its not a biggie to do. handy if you have a long 15mm ring spanner though.
    Be worth double checking its not your free-wheeling alternator pully seized, this will give you a squeek occasionally.
    If the 1600 has a fw alt' pully that is.
