    Default Stretch belt tool for 307/C4

    Hi all

    I'm looking to purchase a tool for removing & refitting the elastic type accessory drive belt on our 307.

    Has anyone purchased one off the web and did it fit on the 307/C4 crank pulley properly?

    Thanks

    I was wondering the same. Sounds like a recipe for disaster when the stretch has gone out of it.

    I need to replace the crank pulley, and getting the stretch belt on and off without a tool is difficult.
    Just need the right one for the PSA pulley.

    Tools look like this:

    I'll be buggered. Please tell me the 407 doesn't have that crap on it. Imagine the pain of trying to change that without a tensioner to back off That's the stupidest idea I've heard of in ages Is it really that expensive to add a simple tensioner

    I don't think the 407 does. Is there a tensioner?
    Seems to work ok as the original belt has 150k on it.

    Its becoming quite common apparently, I only heard about them the other day in a group of auto industry blokes, and they were quoting various makes & models which have the stretch belt - i guess they dont need an adjuster, the stretch covers it.
    They were talking about the tool to fit the belt. I can't give much detail but I remember this - some new belts come with a "throw-away" fitting tool which is handy. You can also buy a tool for about $30 to fit the belts. One bloke said he recommended getting the make of tool which removed and refitted, but I cant remember what the make was. Otherwise the technique is to chop off the old one, which is OK for high Km belt replacement, but a bit of a waste if you want to work on the p/s pump or alternator, etc, and the belt is fairly new. Some had Snap-On brand, but I think that was install only.

    Another new thing that needs a special tool for normal servicing.

    You're right .. another tool required for normal servicing.

    Gates has a tool "SFT001" that suits lots, including local cars (Mazda, Ford, Peugeot etc)
    Dayco Aus has available "TOOL6"

    Some belt install tools can also be used to remove.
