Hi all,

Have done the cambelt on my 2lte, everything went smooth. However, after doing the two engine rotations and locking the idler I feel as though the belt is to loose. However I cant find any information on how tight it should be. Has anyone else done the manual process and found the same thing?

Cheers

@DieselMechanicN , I think there may be different definitions of “lose” and “tight” just depending on the person. IiRC, after I replaced my belt and spring and l tightened everything up, the idler pulley adjustment sat right in the middle of the adjustment area. And I had about a centimeter of deflection on the timing belt. Hope that helps.
