216 Coupe cam belt

#1 Post by Jeff Turbo » Sat Mar 12, 2011 9:38 am

Hi all
I will be changing my sons cambelt soon on his 1997/8 216 Coupe with a K series engine.
Is this an auto or manual tensioner?

Also some bright spark thought it would be funny to snap his roof aerial. Can I just change the roof section or does it all (cable etc) have to be replaced?
And last thing, does anyone have a roof aerial for sale?

Ta Jeff

Wrote a post but then remembered Coupe has a different aerial to the hatchback. I will dig out the manuals and try and find out for you.

Just searched the manual for your car/year and can't find anything on replacing the aerial only for how to unscrew it.

Best thing to do would be to drop the headlining I guess and see if you can seperate the unit from the cable.
