I wonder if the Pulleys and Tensioners could be interchangeable between said models?

Or the Belt arrangement on the Elan is Different?

Kind Regards.
Not a foolish question at all.

I expected these parts would be common with a number of Kia models, but a part number search suggests otherwise. The tensioner appears to be the same as the Credos, but not sure why you don't find the same on Sephia's of the same era.
I note that many of the Sephia's didn't use the serpentine belt, so that could be why.

Talking

About the Sephia engines, remember that only the Second Gen Sephia came with the 1.8L "T8D" engine, not the first gen Sephia; but also you must note that the T8D engine was optional in other markets, such like the LADM (Latin American Domestic Market) where another 1.5L or 1.6L engines were the standard.

~► Kia Sephia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I bet that the T8D uses Serpentine Belts, and the other Layouts / Part number you find might belong to the 1.5L and 1.6L engines, which uses older "V" belts.

Kind Regards.

Finally got it

Hi All

Well after a lot of looking and the wrong part being sent originally, I eventually took delivery of my tensioner for the Elan today. So I got it via Fourgreens and will give it to the garage tomorrow. So thanks for all the help especially you Ron.

Did you change it yourself? How is the belt pushed back on all pulleys?
