    Default Ancillary Drive Belt 308 T9 2.0 Blue HDi

    In my service book it talks about replacing the ancillary drive belt every 30,000kms aand te timing belt every 140,000kms. I am confused as to ehere the ancllary drive belt is, can someone enlighten me please?

    Also, has anyone been replacing this drive belt on their new Peugeot 308 T9 2.0? I service my own vehicle as I live in regional WA so do not ask teh dealers such questions as it increases my scepticism.

    The ancillary belt is the belt that drives the power steer pump; alternator and air conditioning compressor.

    Here are some on Ebay

    Also check the idler pulleys as well, may also need replacing depending on how much work they have done.

    How difficult is it to replace and at what intervals do you reckon? I have a 308 T7 that has never had a change having done 140000kms.

    I have not had to change one yet, but on t9 model (blueHDi) there are 2 spring loaded belt tensioners, so you may need a locking tool to hold them in a retracted position while you change the belt.

    Changed it on T7 308 no problem. My T9 appears much more involved so will hold off. Anyone had their cam belt done? The T7 is 10 years old and book says it should be changed. Other forums I have been on say it is not so important and often disruptive...any thoughts?

    Not important!!! Have you priced the potential cost of not replacing the timing/cam belt when it is due? I would think a broken timing belt is far more disruptive than the act of changing the belt before it breaks!

    Cheers

    I think we are talking about the DW10F engine. If so, here it is, with the ancillary belt visible, driving the alternatot and the AC compressor. Being a modern car the steering is electrically assisted.

    So here's the thing! I have contacted the only Peugeot dealer operating in WA, Duncan Nissan and been told via a local mechanic that there are no timing belt kits in the country for the T9 2014 308 BlueHDi model. Mine needs changing now so what do I do? Stop driving and wait 4 to 5 weeks until the kit arrives for the mechanic to do the work? Not going to happen!! How can a motor car dealer not have critical spare parts for a 4 year old vehicle in the country. I am livid and believe Peugeot needs to accept liability if my belt goes while waiting for the kit to arrive!!

    Ditto'd that already...thanks! We have seen 2 major dealers close in WA reduced to a shared service space with a incommunicative Nissan dealer . Answer: Do not buy Peugeot!!! Is that the answer?
