I've just got a new alternator for my valver, trying to fit it at the moment. I've removed the bonnet and drivers side headlight to gain access but I've hit a problem. The garage that did my last service claimed my tensioner for the aux belt is seized and I've just discovered they are correct. My mate had the same problem on his 106 gti and he say when he changed his alternator he just didn't slacken the belt and removed the alternator and replaced the new one. Reckon this is possible with a valver? I mean the belt is at the correct tension with about 2mm play between the steering pump and the alternator. Can I just remove the alternator the loop the belt over the new one and bolt it all up?
