Check of a condition and replacement of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units

THROUGH EACH 30 000 KM (18 000 MILES) RUN

Exact adjustment of a tension of a driving belt can achieve only with use of the special Citroёn SEEM 4122-T tool. The description of a way of approximate adjustment (at the first possibility the car should be driven away on car repair shop where correctness of installation can be checked with use of the special equipment) below is provided.

On all models one belt of a drive of auxiliary units is provided established. On the models which have not been equipped with the conditioner of air, the belt is used for a drive of the steering pump and the generator. Adjustment of a tension of a belt here is made manually. On models with To/in the same belt the compressor of the conditioner which is established from above on the generator is put in action also. In this case belt assembly is equipped with a roller automatic natyazhitel.

Check

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Prop up protivootkatny boots back wheels, поддомкратьте a front of the car and establish it on props. Remove the right forward wheel.

2. In an arch of a wheel remove from a podzor a plastic cover, having provided with that access to the right wall of the power unit.


3. Turning the engine for a bolt of a pulley of a cranked shaft by means of a face natural a suitable drive, attentively examine an auxiliary driving belt on all its length. Pay attention to defects of type of cracks, stratifications and attritions. Existence of zapolirovanny sites to shine is inadmissible also. The defective or worn-out belt is subject to replacement.
4. If the condition of a belt is found satisfactory, make adjustment of effort of its tension (except equipped To/in models where the automatic natyazhitel is provided).

Removal, installation and tension adjustment (models without the air conditioner)

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If yet did not do it, execute the procedures 2 — 3 described in "Check".
2. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.

3. Weaken fixing and adjusting bolts of an arm of a tension roller (one of bolts is located in the central part of the roller, the second symbol - below on an arm).


4. Against the stop tighten an adjusting bolt and remove a belt from pulleys.

5. Check freedom of rotation of a tension roller.

Installation

In case of need replacement performance, track, that the new belt without fail corresponded on a standard size failed. Throw with a new belt pulleys and choose its weak point as a way of a tightening of an adjusting bolt. Now it is possible to start tension adjustment (see further).

Tension adjustment

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If yet did not do it, execute the procedures 2 — 3 described in "Check".
2. Observance of correctness of adjustment of effort of a tension of a driving belt is guarantee of duration of term of its service. The too poorly tense belt usually starts to whistle. Remember also that excessively strong tension of a belt leads to overloads and premature wear of bearings of the generator.
3. The belt should be tense so that at a firm nazhimaniye on it a thumb on a site in the middle between the pulleys most removed from each other the size of a deflection made about 5 mm (see the remark at the beginning of the section).
4. Correction of a tension of a belt is made by rotation of an adjusting bolt. Having achieved satisfactory result, several times turn a cranked shaft, then repeat check. Strongly tighten fixing/adjusting bolts.
5. Connect a negative wire to the battery.
6. Establish into place a plastic cover of a podzor of a wing and the right forward wheel, then lower the car on the earth and tighten wheel bolts.

Removal and installation (the models equipped with the conditioner of air)

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If yet did not do it, execute the Checks procedures.
2. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.
3. Pass a prutkovy key of square section in a special opening in the lower part of an arm of a natyazhitel and start to rotate a natyazhitel counter-clockwise, weakening thereby a belt. For fixing of a natyazhitel in the released situation pass a prutkovy key on 4 mm in a special opening and tighten a pin.
4. Turn out fixing bolts and remove a roller of a natyazhitel, then throw off a belt from pulleys.
5. Check freedom of rotation of a roller of a natyazhitel.

Installation

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Make sure that the replaceable belt corresponds failed on the standard size. Throw with a new belt pulleys, having tracked correctness of hit of edges in streams.
2. Establish a roller of a natyazhitel and tighten fixing bolts.
3. By means of a prutkovy key of square section fix a natyazhitel, a usual prutkovy key (on 4 mm) release a pin and slowly release assembly, having allowed it to make a belt tension. Still make sure of correctness of hit of edges of a belt in streams of pulleys.
4. Connect a negative wire to the battery.
5. Establish into place a plastic cover of a podzor of a wing and the right forward wheel, then lower the car on the earth and tighten wheel bolts with demanded effort.
