Apparently The Swede is driving a 2000 9-3. Maybe the idler pulley / belts are set up differently on that car. :confused: I don't know, but I get that same confused feeling without the help of Canadian. Actually, some of your Canadian would help aleviate the confusion. :cool:

eh?

Anyways. I guess the correct reponse would be something along the lines of. Some of your American can help this somehow???:confused: :lol:

I see he drives a 9-3 now, ooops.:suprised;


-No really, I don't understand what you were trying to say!


I think the correct response would be courtesy of Jezzadee:

The model known as the Classic 900 ran from 1979 to 1993 (1994 for convertibles). If your 900 was built after that date then it is an NG900 (or GM900) and you need the NG900 & 9-3 Workshop .

i bet if you had looked at it anytime in the last year, it would have been fairly clear that a replacement would be a safe bet...

Idler pullys do tend to have a limited lifespan, I'd replace it sooner than 8 years in the future, they are a pretty cheap part and can be replace easily, and as you've seen, when they go out your day is pretty well ruined. Also, an inspection of the belt and pully area will usually turn up any suspect pullys that might need replacement in the early future.

I'll move this over to the appropriate workshop for ya Swede, ignore the fellows, they ramble on like this sometimes, its kind of like sitting on a nursing home porch in the summer. :D
