Hi Guys

The 2 belts at the front of my 1997 C230K are looking a bit cracked so i would like to replace them. I have a Haynes but it doesnt cover the 230k engine - so im guessing one belt works the supercharger and the other runs everything else?

Any tips from you much more experience people? First thing i need to do is take the fan off which is a reversed thread?

I have searched here and on benzworld but there doesnt seem to be much info covering both belts?

any pointers much appreciated

Your Email address is in your signature, and I sent them there, they have not bounced back so look in your junk folder
