You know, i could have sworn there that you said you had a Diesel. Must be a typo... :P
He does indeed! A 2.2 no less. Not his only Saab though... He can fill you in.


yes indeed i do Sir Paul :) a 2.2 chain driven lump, like all good engines are ;) shes done me proud for the last god knows how long, takes untold over-revving, untold harsh cornering, untold total abuse, but you know what ? she is part of the family :) when i arrived in Hampshire this afternoon the poor thing groaned when i got out, shes had a very traumatic last 45,000k , endured some pretty harsh driving, in the snow, sun, rain, you name it shes been in it, it may not be a saab engine, may not be a saab chassis, but it was put together by the good people of trollhatten, the same people that for years put our bread and butter on a plate, allowing us to sample the delights of what can be done with ingenuity, brilliance, perfection and a lust for over engineering, long live SAAB, in this family anyway. BTW i washed her today :)

Whipped some more bits from Parts Car.

I will have to find me 17mm socket if I am going to sell the parking sensor kit.

Finally got a chance to look at the Activa to figure out why this is happening to the aux belt.

Image

First suspect was either the idler or tensioner pulley having died...however they seem fine. Everything is rotating freely and smoothly and there's no play in anything. It also doesn't make sense taking into account the direction of belt travel...a stuffed tensioner would make the belt try to walk off the crankshaft pulley...not the hydraulic pump.

After a bit of head scratching however I've come up with a theory.

I'm pretty sure I don't remember being able to see a shiny edge on the crankshaft pulley originally.

Image

It does look rather crusty too...

Image

I *think* what's happened is that the bonded rubber bit has failed and the outer section has started to walk off towards the inboard side, pulling the belt with it. Hopefully finding a new pulley won't be too huge a headache.

Is the following the right part? -> https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Citroen-Xant ... :rk:6:pf:0

I reckon it probably is...going to look the part number up tomorrow and hopefully confirm that.

I know it's been off pretty recently too, so shouldn't be too much of a pain to get off...will check when the timing belt is due as well as if I've got to take the pulley off I may as well do it too unless it's a ways off yet...

So, I finally fabsil'd the roof today. Should have done it last week but didn't get the mould out first time. Of course, the biblical rains came before I could get it done but it actually coped pretty well with only a couple of damp patches in the headlining and no wet seats. Pro tip, don't fabsil your roof under a tree, a vindictive pigeon will shap fell on it part way through. Guess how I learned that.

All this damp weather highlighted another fault, the heater wouldn't blow at the screen regardless of what setting it was on. A quick search of this place (via Google, I actually wanted to find the answer!) followed by calibrating the system and I can now see out of the windows again.

Things left to do include fixing the noisy interior temp sensor (I have two, both do my nut in), feed the leather, decide what to do with the stereo and change the oil & filter.

There definitely shouldn't be a step in my crankshaft pulley for the Xantia. Thankfully being shared with a plethora of other PSA vehicles it's not difficult to find. £65 has a Febi Bilstein on the way.

In case anyone is looking in future, the Citroen part no for this part is 0515H6.

Replaced NSF window regulator on the Aero. Not a job for a rainy day but needs must.
