Well put it this way, if you dont fancy pushing it when it falls off, you could always drive a Renault.

Anyone with the link to buy an entire set?
Aux belt + tensioner + water pump and cambelt + tensioners?
Problem free set that can last 60.000km ...unlike mine

Well, I'm going to buy new aux belt today, and while I'm at it new tensioner roller and water pump too - I added some UV collouring into coolant to find a leak and the only place I could find it was under water pump. The V-valey is dry, hbv is dry...
And while I'm there I'm going to take off cambelt cover...I'm afraid that cambelt looks the same as aux belt

Just bought new aux belt, water pump and thermostat while I'm there. Going to open cambelt cover anyway to see what does the cambelt look like.
Well it's a good thing I noticed it before it snapped...like it did two and a half years before :-\

The result....
After checking on cambelt and timing - everything is still spot on and looking ok.
Then I went to search for a coolant leak and found oil cooler plate leaking.
Assembled it all together without touching anything than aux belt which was close to failure. Sometime next year omega will need cambelt replacement due to mileage and I'll do it all together while I'm there.

Has anyone tried ebay oil cooler that cost around 150?
Those are the cheapest I could find. Regards, Stan
