Rover Streetwise auxiliary belt
« on: 21 May 2019, 20:44:32 »

MOT tester pointed out to me that the auxiliary belt looked frayed and about to fail, he advised me to change it. I agreed with him. However, when I came to order a new belt online, I find the belt depends whether or not the car has air conditioning - this car has. How do I obtain the correct belt?

Or you could check the existing belt for marks, just like you would on an Omega; a V6 belt is a 6PK 2020, which tells a supplier everything they need to know to provide a new one - they don't go by what it's fitted to.

Thank you gentlemen; both good suggestions. Whenever I go to my local parts factor, all he wants is the registration number for parts. I will try that first.

Fairly certain all the later (post 2000) K series take same length belt, only varies if it has a/c.

Any factor should be able to supply with just a "A/C?" Y/N question.
