New belts tensioner
Has anyone got a pre-tensioner for the fan belt?

My vehicle is a Rover 75, 2003, CDT, manual, lhd, diesel.

I had both belts replaced and I think my fitter forgot the tensioner was retained by a left hand thread.

After picking up my car, the next day I was turning left and there was a rattling noise followed by a clunk. I looked under the bonnet and the main belt seems to be moving across the lower pulley. My interpretation is that the tensioner was not secured owing to the fitter forgetting it was retained by a left hand thread bolt.

There doesn't appear to be any noises and the belts seem intact. No warning lights are lit up.

He is a fitter, not a mechanic!
