Hello lads

I drive a defender but I recently bought a freelander1 td4 for my wife. Great wee thing. The alternator belt shredded and so I replaced it. When I was down there I saw another belt behind it that doesn't look too hot either. What is this belt? I thought this engine ran on a chain?? Is it something I can pull off and replace myself? Can't find much information on it anywhere.

Thanks in advance

It is the air-con belt, replace it while you have the aux belt off.

Biggest problem with the aux belt is restricted access and getting the belt to stay in place before you can release the tensioner. It can be a faff but then suddenly comes together, you certainly don't want to have to do it again in a few months just because you didn't replace the air-con belt at the same time.
