    Peugeot 306 hdi v-belt

    can I use the manual idler tensioner on peugeot 306 hdi to tighten the v-belt reason I ask is that the bolt on the automatic tensioner as been rounded off and I cant pull the tensioner back to lock it off

    how will I do this if iam correct I put the belt on and use the manual idler tensioner to tighten the belt up correct

    reason I ask is that the bolt on the automatic tensioner as been rounded off and everytime I place a spanner on and go to left it up the spanner just slips

    do I need a special tool for the manual idler tensioner to hold it why I tighten the bolt up once tensioned

    I just used a spanner and an allen key back in the day.

    a regular 15mm spanner is indeed very likely to slip off, I had a very long and totally straight one (nearly 2 ft long).

    i cant move the automatic tensioner due to bolt being rounded off so I asked if I can tension the v-belt via the manual idler tensioner

    you need both tensioners.

    the fixed tensioner uses an allen key, the other a 15mm spanner.

    Since you need BOTH, I suggest you find a way like jamming a spanner on the automatic tensioner so you can untension it (even if only a little) or you'll have a terrible time fitting a new belt.

    try a magi spanner (they do exist), or possibly a pipe wrench
