I was asked to pass this on by a member having issues posting here:
I have an ’02 VDC sedan with 138k miles and as part of a continuing maintenance program just changed the accessory belt and idler bearings. No cracking on the belt ribs and the bearings felt like they had another 20k in them (compared to the new bearings). Tip – freeze the new bearings and heat the pullys to 200* F and everything falls together (tap the bearings to seat them). BTW, my only worry about the six cylinder engine is the water pump seals leaking into the chain case.
