Aye that would explain it. When we initially took the old knackered waterpump off a shed load of water came out, despite the fact the drain tap had been open without a drip for several hours.

Heaters are always shite in those Corsa c's lol, might need the heater matrix flushing. With the cooling system taking 5lt.... That sounds right but you will never be able to get all the water out so if its run up and at the max level then it should be fine

Decided to tackle this again today, was a piece of cake using a wrench on the pulley nut! Cheers guys.

New ones from vaux are a hit and miss. Most have came pretentioned with a pin. 2 or 3 out of he 15 or so I've done havnt. Stick it in a vice or in a huge pair of grips. Then sick aload of cable ties in it to hold the spring. Then once you've got it out of the vice work quickly to get it bolted back up before the ties eventually snap haha

No it won't come already compressed, just fit the tensioner back to the car then compress the spring bit and fit the belt :)

as above the bolt under is the bolt you want, id spray the tensioner with some lubricant as there always solid

The big torx bolt under the red circle that looks like it holds the pully on.... Move that clockwise and it will take the tension off

Any ideas how the tensioner pulley works on these?
