Is there spring tension to be backed off? I have done this belt but forget the details now.

1130 K6 is the original (Citroen part: 5750TK or 1606351180 for the non OEM version).

I'm not familiar with the set up on the Xantia, but its possible that there's more than one way of adjusting the tension on the belt. In some cases there's a Tensioner that can be moved and, in addition to that; the Alternator can be loosened and pushed one way or t'other to create extra slack.

Make sure you get a photo or sketch of the routing, particularly if its a complex one with AC and PAS, coz its easy to forget once its off and spend 'forever' trying to get the thing back on coz you're doing it wrong

Is it a stretch belt?
