Auxiliary Drive Belt & Rollers

The belt roller (in the middle) is making noises now. Bad bearings!

Replacement part is 5751.G3.

New design with plastic material.

Just a picture of the auxiliary drive belt 5750.KX.

The main pulley is also broken. The pulley is constructed from 3 rings which are tightly fitted to each other...

...but this one is loose and the rings are slipping, as evidenced by the misalignment of the white marker on the rings. When it gets wet in the rain, the rings slips and does not drive the power steering pump and alternator, resulting in loss of power steering and a drained battery.

It is so loose that the pieces can be separated easily by hand.

Anti-roll Bar Drop Link Replacement

The drop link is making knocking sounds and was replaced.

New and old comparison.

The rubber boot broke and dirt had eaten into the metal.

New drop link in its place.

Part number 5087.59 fits the car.

"Check For Worn Anti Roll Bar Drop Links" video. He's definitely not me! Watch in Google Video.

Starter Motor

I happened to be crawling under the car checking the steering rack and found the starter motor, located behind the engine block, under the air intake.

AL4 Vehicle Speed Sensor

Since someone asked about the location of the vehicle speed sensor, it is part of the AL4 transmission and located near the drive shaft. I don't have pictures of my own, so here's some from the internet.

The easiest way to gain access to it is from under the car. Removal is easy, just remove the bolt and slowly pull the sensor out.

Crappy Mechanics Peugeot 206 Induction kit

This is an interesting video, just because I miss England and that cat is just lovely.

Air Intake Duct Removal

How to remove the air intake duct:
1. Remove left wheel.
2. Remove left wheel arch.
3. Remove air filter box.
4. Remove steel bracket.
5. Working from under the car, unhook air box fastener and hose fastener.
6. Detach hose from air box.
7. Remove air box.
8. Remove hose.

The air box had water sloshing inside. I guess it easily collects water in this tropical weather that rains and floods frequently. So I permanently removed the air box and hose, leaving only the air filter box. This created a nice intake roar when accelerating and better pick-up together with better throttle response. I guess the air box and hose restricted air flow.

My Haynes Peugeot 206 manuals.

I strongly recommend buying these books. They are excellent for the home mechanic.
