View Full Version : No, you don't have to remove the fan shroud to change an alternator belt on a 200tdi

Tried to change my 200tdi alternator belt yesterday and could not figure out if the plastic fan shroud had to come out or not. Long story short - it does not. All you need to do is move the air cleaner and remove the turbo intercooler pipe and you can get the belt off and re-tension it.
