Sportivo Belts/Pulleys

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

My 05 Sportivo has 81k on it now and since about 77-78k it has been making a weird bearing/rattling noise which has progressively become worse. Im am curious to find out the service intervals of the 2zz engine because i am certain that the rattle is only because the belts/pulleys need to be done as part of an 80k service?

If im right, is somebody able to outline what is actually involved in terms of parts and labour etc that are necessary for the service? Plus, if it is a bearing issue - will that be resolved as part of the service? I assume that its okay to go with genuine parts, but while im at it i was thinking of getting the MWR alternator and water pump pulleys. opinions?

Im really just looking for someone with some experience to point me in the right direction.

belts are good for more than 80km however nothing stopping you replacing it then.

rattle comes from the tensioner pulley. mine is kind of fixed with just a pulley replacement, however a full tensioner arm is the way to go if you want to stop the rattle.

at the end of the day there is nothing wrong with your car.
