Default damper pulley in the palio 1.9d

Hi all,

Last week i started geting a clanking sound from the engine bay of my
palio 1.9. it sounded a lot like something which was rotating was touching
something else.

showed it to a palio specialist ( used to work for fiat A.S.S. in the
past) & he confirmed that it is the damper pulley which is gone.
he mentioned something about a part of it being moulded plastic.

He tried to source this from his contacts but they are out of stock.
( he says it costs about Rs 6,000 )

when i tried to find this part nobody seems to know what the damper
pulley is. ( tried 3 different spares dealers ) and from all the
research i did on the forums & this groups it appears that the part
we are looking at is the tension pulley.

so, could somebody confirm if the tension pulley & damper pulley are
one & the same ? and if you are aware of the cost do post it too.

i shall post some pictures of what it looks like as soon as i can get
hold of a camera & my car.

Thanks In Advance,
Sachin Filinto.

hey sachin,

no, the damper pulley also known as a harmonic balance is not the same as a tension pulley.
The damper pulley is attached to the crankshaft and reduces/removes any vibrations.
It is expensive to replace.i dont know the cost for the palio's damper.
It is a crutail part,hence go in for OE only.

Default damper pulley

I scrounged over the internet and I found out that the damper pulley is not the idler bearing pulley. Its a thing that sits next to the crankshaft pulley. Please do a search.

For the record, i have got this fixed over the weekend.

The damper pulley of the palio looks like the second image on the below link.

thanks to everybody who helped.
Dr Pullockaran, Ahbishek & not forgetting our mechanic Madhav.

Guys if you need a good mechanic for your palio in bangalore, i definatelly recomend Madhav. his diagnostic was pretty much on target.

I had a similar problem and got the Damper Pulley changed with the FAN Belt .

The main reason for this is the TIming Tensioner which also needs to be changed.

Total cost - Belt - 700
Pulley - 500
Timing tensioner - 1450
