I know a lot of members have had problems with incorrect parts being supplied when replacing the cambelt/tensioner/idler pulley.

Replacement of these parts is vital at regular intervals, and the XU10J4RS engine is somewhat prone to cambelt failure Happy

Peugeot main-dealers don't know there arse from there elbow; dont rely on them for advice Roll eyes

I will try and clear up some of the confusion.

Phase cars are fitted with tensioner part no. 0829 35 (upto build code 08546). With this tensioner, a 136 tooth cambelt must be used.



This tensioner was prone to bearing failure resulting in extensive damage. Peugeot changed the design somewhere around the phase 2/3 crossover (from build code 08547).

The new revised tensioner has part number 0829 84, and must me used with the 137 tooth cambelt (due to the tensioner having a larger radius).



My advice is, regardless of your cars age/phase/build code, order the newer updated tensioner and 137 tooth belt.

This is harder than may first appear. Communicating with a Peugeot parts monkey is like trying to get blood out of a stone.

Good luck peeps

So what about the semo-auto tensioner? Unsure

Or is that the change over one? Unsure

There is no semi automatic tensioner, or never has been.

The only automatic tensioner is on the aux belt (power steering belt).
