If paranoid about aux belt exploding into the cam belt then one of Joe’s cam belt ‘covers’ is a must. Had one fitted recently while drive shaft seals and boots were being done. Quality bit of kit!!...bit of a plug but made sense!!
I think i should start a how long does it take coop paranoia to set in thread? Collected car yesterday morning, looks brilliant good record, belts changed 8k ago= 8yrs ago, why does it look so good? = respray, Aha, that's a good thing? right? but what does it cover up? Magnitude of ills? No because it was worth it? Begining to sound like Gollum in Lord of The Rings!
when i checked the service records on mine i discovered that the last documented belt service had been 14 years previously. it had only done a tiny mileage in those 14 years but the history looks as if it can be relied on.
needless to say, it was attended to urgently but a worrying couple of days before it could be changed !
