Hi guys,

I recently had my crank shaft pulley replaced as it was knackered and causing quite a bit of engine noise. More recently, I have had a squeeky noise coming from one of the other pulleys (not sure which). So this morning, I picked up a can of Belt Slip. Used it as instructed.

Problem is now, that my drive belt has slipped (see attachment).

I thought Belt Slip was supposed to do the opposite?

I am due to take my car up to my friends garage today to get the front suspension sorted. Is it safe to drive it up there in this condition?

Thanks.

I would only drive it to the garage that fitted the crank pulley,as long as its not miles away?
That belt will be split and off in no time,get it fixed.More than likely they have just fitted it a groove out.Also its worth checking that the crank pulley fitted is the correct one and inline with all the other pulleys.If its running out of line this will happen as soon as you run it.

I agree with above it could possibly be that the bottom pulley used was the wrong one as there are different sizes and amounts of grooves or the belt was simply not refitted properly.

Either way it NEEDS fixed as if it comes off it can get wrapped round the bottom timing belt pulley making the timing belt jump and smashing the rockers.

I drove it to my friends house (who fitted the pulley in the first place). It is the right crank pulley. There wasn't enough tension when we fitted it and thats what caused the belt to slip, rather than the spray.

Top and bottom of it is the belt split on route, I lost my power steering etc. New belt is fitted now, lucky escape really.

I hope you made sure there was no belt debris wrapped around the crank pulley?
I`ve had a few where bits of aux` belt debris finds its way into the cam cover and gets tangled with the cambelt!! with the obvious result.

It didn't cross my mind to check. The belt was split, but only about 1/8th of the way down. It was tangled and off. So we just removed it, released tension, fitted the new belt and re applied the tension. All seems to be working fine at the moment, its the most quiet its ever been, which is obviously a relief.

I will be fitting a new timing belt at some point in the not too distant future.
