    On a 2.4d should you change the crank pulley bolt once its been undone? Theres no mention of changing the bolt in the Autodata Timing Belt books and i have em going back to 1995. The 4 i've done never had a new bolt and are still running with no loose pulley, crank horror stories.

      Si. I did not change the bolt when I done the old 2.4. Just tightened right. It was ok

        Si. Don't think I will be leaving the motor trade now after all these years. Mind what else would I do

          Good quality kits come with a new bolt. Keep or buy another diamond washer too. Most I’ve changed to do belts on are missing this or it’s been put in the wrong place. I’ve got a load of spare new bolts if you need one as I’ve still not sent your cluster surround yet so I can add it to that.

          Having said that, the AAB bolts are tightened to 460nm??? The later AJA and 2.5 ones are 160nm plus 180 degrees so whether they’re stretch and the old ones aren’t, I dunno. Check the ugga dugga specs.

            For an extra tenner I'd put a new crank gear on as well.

              I’ve never bothered on the 5’s. Have done on the 4 pots as they’re a shit design and love to fuck up.
