New pulley readily and cheaply available from Vauxhall. New belt might also be a prudent purchase, although not essential if ok.

In Sussex, but occasionally pass that way... Not a particularly arduous job though :y

As DG says I'd take the precaution of changing the belt too.Tensioner pulley is only held by one bolt[15mm spanner/socket?]so I'd just change the pulley and not the whole tensioner,unless you know of some kind of fault with the tensioner.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have a new belt and complete tensioner assembly, to fit the whole thing looks too involved, i.e removal or ram intakes etc.. I was advised by RAC that it wasn't a difficult job, so provided i can get just the pulley ,it looks a pretty straight forward as you said.
Thanks again chaps.

Taking the Rams Intake, Penluim etc off is a fairly easy job, its getting the Belt fitted correctly thats important, why would the RAC man be talking at you, has something all ready happened to it.
