  3. Attach tension gauge to belt at warning. Tool No.SEEM C.Tronic 105.5 [8] .
  4. Slacken tensioner nut [7] .
  5. Turn tensioner anti-clockwise until tension gauge indicates 44 SEEM units.
  6. Tighten tensioner nut to 22 Nm [7] .
  7. Remove:
      • Timing pins [5] & [6] .
      • Tension gauge [8] .
  8. Turn crankshaft four turns clockwise to setting position.
  9. Insert timing pin in flywheel [6] .NOTE: DO NOT allow crankshaft to turn anti-clockwise.
  10. Ensure timing pin can be inserted easily in camshaft sprocket [5] .
