    Had a advisory on the MOT that the aux belt could do with replacing.

    Whats it worth replacing at the same time in terms of water pump/tensioners etc and does anyone know of any UK suppliers of OEM quality kit that they have had good experiences with.

    Thanks in advance

    I changed my thermostat water pump, both tensioners and both belts and got everything from Euro Car Parts

    What @Jack Ratt said. Makes sense whilst you're in there.

    Or try ebay, Meyle parts are pretty good. In my experience, anyway.

    Viscous coupling is sounding a bit 'tank like' any preferred options for these manufacturer wise?

    Its only done 30k, but the consumables are looking a bit tired...
