    Cambelt rollers!

    Hi after 10,000 miles it seems my cambelt rollers need replaced.
    Car is making a rubbing catching noise from the cambelt area on idle and increases with revs. I can only assume its the rollers as it sounds like a plastic noise.
    Thought it might of been the alternater but took the belt off today and ran the car and it still makes the noise.
    Question is though can you buy the rollers seperate or are they only available in a full kit as the belt and tensioner has only been on 10,000 miles and is in good condition.
    I do all the work myself with my old man so i can easily change the belt again when its due.
    Thanks
    Waterpump was also changed 10,000 miles ago and there is no water leaks

    I've got the same noise, on mine it's coming from the alternator.

    Whip the aux belt off and start the engine to confirm.

    Well i was 90% certain it was my alternator but when i took the v belt of yesterday morning and started it, the noise was still there and its the noise im guessing a faulty roller would make and its coming from the cambelt area as i took the top cover off!
    My cars off the road now until saturday as it got a little bit louder on friday night and im taking no chances!
    I just hope its not internal part of the engine like the cam bearings or tappets

    same noise on mine a little time after I bought it, swapped cam belt, rollers and found the water pump bearings collapsed when took it all apart, always change the water pump whilst you have it apart!!
