Hello all, got the front end stripped out on the td5 at the mo to flush the intercooler out. While I was there I took the fan belt off and checked all the components it runs on were ok. Now then, the damped crankshaft pulley is like that I can rock the part that the belt runs on just a little back and forth while the middle is still.
Is this Ok? or is the damped pulley on the way out?
It dose not feel like its going to fall apart or anything.
By the way to get the intercooler out is a right cow! See photos!
It is a good time to wire brush and waxoyl the power steering pipes that run under the radiator, also that part of the chassis.
