Hi, can anyone suggest or recommend make /brand of belt for the Aux belt?
We had the idler pinion fail on our 2.0 Diesel 163 engine so the belt and pinion need changing.
Also is it worth doing the tensioner and crankshaft pulley at the same time? It's done 123K but there's no reason to think...

My tdci Mondeo is now just over 99k miles and needs an AUX/tensioner replacement soon. Anyone knows how long these belts last for as I cannot see any visible damage to it and no vibration or rattles from the tensioner at all. I owned the car from nearly new and the belt was never replaced...
