Yip - main stealer with 20% supply only discount. Lol.

£60 from breakers but given its drivers side , would worry if it's weakened but belt stretch isn't obvious.

Lighter trick done and dusted - thanks.

£350?!? You could buy a new one for that :P



Just realised sarcasm doesn't convey so well through a keyboard.

But definitely get a lighter on that for a quick fix, just remember to blow it out.... ;)

Thanks guys. Hopefully ok then. Got a shock at the £350 quote for a replacement.

Likely to pass with an advisory in my opinion, the belts not significantly weakened looking at the images.

Hi Drew. Welcome to the Forum.
Looks OK. The belt must be significantly weakened to fail the test.
To get rid of the frayed bits, try singeing them of with a lighter, stops further damage too.

Kev.

Hi,

Is this likely to pass, fail or be an advisory.


Thanks
Drewb
