Mercedes C180 serpentine belt

By Chris McPheat, Jan 31 2020 04:53PM

Something a little more modern than usual this Mercedes C180 was towed in today with a serpentine belt failure. The tangle in front of the car is what is left of the old belt, the tensioner pulley bearing had seized and that was that. It's also torn up the deflection pulley. New parts on order, thankfully the tensioner pulley can be replaced rather than the full assembly, replacing that means removing the intake manifold, supercharger and all sorts of other plastic stuff.
