Re: Aux belt

I have ordered K015130XS, should I brace myself for utter disappointment in not having all the belts?

Re: Cambelt

Yes, change the water pump and use that as an opportunity to change the thermostat and flush & replace coolant (and the heater matrix!!!!!)‎. What temperature does Skip usually run at?

I knew it was there somewhere but could not find it. Would you change the water pump as well? Not sure where to find the proper one.
