My engines been getting a bit noisy for a while now but wasn't sure why, I took the cambelt cover off today and had a poke at the belt to find that I could very easily flex the belt between the the inlet and outlet cam pulleys. I could flex the belt half way between the pulleys about 10mm from pushing it down to pulling it up, is this normal, I don't know howtight the cambelt should be but I guess tighter than this????????
Can someone shed some light on this?
The annoying thing is a similair thing happened about a year ago so why I didn't think to check sooner I don't know.
If this is slack, as I suspect, then why would this keep happening, is the tensioner fooked and if so how mush am I looking at to sort this lot out?
Many thanks for your help guys
