Hello all
I cannot source Aux belts for my 1993 T4 2.4 diesel camper (Autosleeper Trooper). They seem to have been discontinued. Have used a number of suppliers and they have sent me belts for an AAB engine which are either too thick or don’t solve the problem.
If I lock the wheel, the belt screeches and snaps. Anyone know any suppliers or someone in the know. Am off on a big 2 week road trip and whilst I love the element of surprise - will it work/won’t it - it’s wearing thin!!!
Huge thanks!

The AAB is the only 2.4 for 1993. The alternator belt changed from a single V 10x1152 (VW part number 074 903 137 AF and yes, obsolete genuine) to a wider V 12.5x1175 (VW part number 074 903 138 and also obsolete genuine) during the middle of 93 at VIN wv2zzz70zPH032338. Assuming yours is the early version you should easily be able to find a Dayco 10A1150C, Gates 6226MC, Meyle 052 010 1150 etc

The power steering belt changed at VIN wv2zzz70zMH175000 which was 91 and it looks like that is a 10x858 VW number 023 145 271 B, again obsolete, but a Continental AVX10X858, Dayco 10A0865C, Gates 6263MCo or Meyle 052 010 0858

Watch out for companies such as Auto Doc and Bestparts store etc as they have good prices, massive range but dreadful delivery.

Meyle in the UK is part of VW Heritage

Thank you so much! The Meyle 0858 fit - though the teeth on the belt aren’t the perfect solution.

Meyle also sent 1125 alternator belt - but it is too thick. Will send back and replace with the 1150.
Again - HUGE thanks
