    Retro fit by Eberspacher so not a Peugeot part. The bearing was screeching down in Germany and the Peugeot garage could only remove the Pulley and belt so that we could proceed in relative peace minus air con which would have been handy. Greenflag shall be getting a call for refund as by the time the girl asked all the useless details that should have been logged by my membership details I ran out of call time and with no wifi could not top up, I was not happy at that stage. Anyway can any of you advise where to get the pulley in UK or ebay, I have had a look but nothing is coming up that looks anything like the biz.
    Peugoet Boxer x250 2008 2.2 HDI 100.

    Thanks

    Yes I said that, but Eberspacher sites not particularly parts orientated they just want to sell you new complete kits ?? :(

    Can't you not just replace the knackered bearings in the pulley ?

    SORRY I thought you were suggesting looking for a Peugeot Boxer X250 part, I second the suggestion of e-mail to Eberspacher.

    No reply so far from Eberspacher, reflection of the reliability of their equipment ? :(

    I bought a new 85cm sat dish from Satelite superstore, www.satellitesuperstore.com, lads for our European expedition. I let my tripod fall, actually the wind done it and it made a mess of the LNB arm socket. Reply within 2 hours and new part in the post FOC !! (y)(y)

    What do you need air con for, since meeting up with you in Germany we've had nothing but rain and snow. Still heading south but still raining, Lake Bled at the moment and no sign of improving.
    Good to have had our chat in Fussen.
    Cheers Ebo

    Hiya, Ebo We must have towed the sun with us, certainly the few days we took up the Romantischer Strasse was lovely and Trier - Koblenz gorgeous and the wine - hic ! We met"Viking" in Bruges, had a good blether with them too.
    I need to get retired so that getting home is not on the schedule. I am sure there is a drop of good weather out there for you. Hang in there!

    Yes great to hear a civilised voice, you need a fix every now and then :whistle: Safe voyage, you lucky sods !! (y)

    Yep no reply from Eberspacher, so their crap bearing will be replaced tomorrow without their help. So Jockanezer your suggestion has borne fruit !

    On reflection, replacing a dud part from the same source may very well have been a dud idea anyway. (y)

    Most of that type of tensioner use standard bearings - if you can get a local garage to press it out for you take it to your local bearing supplier( just Google it ) you may have to go to Carlisle - they will match it for you and then just get the new one pressed in and refit probably half the price of a new one

    Brammer at Heathhall will be able to sort you out, most likely be a 6201 2RS bearing or similar, will cost under a fiver and will likely be in stock (y)
