Fan belt issue keeps coming off

My fan belt snapped about 2 weeks ago and i replaced it. All was fine til last night when it came off again. I put it back on but it came off again.

I am suspecting the lower pulley (crank Pulley). This is a two part pulley with a rubber ring separating the inner and outer parts. There seems to me to be undue movement in this. When putting the belt back on I noticed I could move the outer part of the pulley on the inner one quite easily with my fingers. Do I need to replace this or is it meant to be like that?

Welcome to the forum. Yes definitely replace it! They're held on with a bolt with a large flange built in. This will almost certainly have rusted itself very very firmly to the pulley and it's going to put up a fight. Or it'll just crack off with a decent impact gun. Some people have also wedged a breaker bar against the chassis and flicked the starter. Others have had to resort to slicing the flange off with an angry grinder. Best of luck!

If you send a message including your registration number via the shop at the top of the page Martin who owns the site will be able to get you the correct one at a very reasonable price.

I'm in Ireland If you can cross reference parts from an Irish reg it is 07DL12290.

I cannot exactly cross reference parts against an Irish registration but I can see it is a 2007 VVT in Black.

Being a VVT, the pulley I linked to is correct.

Well that's it sorted my local motor factors was able to get the part in for this morning and I fitted it this evening. Cheers for the help guys.
I have the cooling system filled with water for the moment as I wasn't sure if I could refill with the pink/red coolant I have I think it's ethylene Glycol based.
Should I stick with green coolant?

The 5 year red is ok if you flush it out with a hose.

Thanks Kirk, I'll be doing the commute into work tomorrow with just water in the system. I'll give it another hose out tomorrow evening and refill with pink. Cheers, good to be back on the road so quickly.
