Supercharger belt tension or timing chain?
The belt tensioner always made me nervous taking the slack and putting an allen key through the tensioner hole - single personned.
Whos drives better? The R53 or 52?
It was the aux belt tensioner and pulley.

2 man job releasing the tension on the belt, though I did nearly fall over when the belt tool slipped, not my proudest moment!

I’d say R52....but in reality they are much the same, but the R53 feels “tighter” as the R52 like most convertibles has more rattles.

At 18 & 14 years old both cars have aged very well, but need their maintenance kept on top of.
