    I was just pushing pulley to belt then tightening when I put in Allen key I noticed the spring I had been told about so I gave it just a little more then tightened 13mm then looked it was clearing ac pulley and ac working each time and not a sound I was surprised how little extra tention made such a dramatic difference in sound

    Beake accumulator I believe ?
    I was lucky to have a friend in Romania where I ordered mine from

    Tax free and cheaper because of value on money.
    A friend sendet it over as gift. No import taxes.

    But I put a wabco on.
    I double checked everything regarding this thing and no one ever had any alternative in for a lenght of time without issues.
    Wabco brake system is like land rover.
    A speciall kind of thing. Lol.

    Sorry .. but seems.you have to find a wabco .
