Cambelt change

I was wondering if changing the cambelt yourself is a bit of a bastard or not, cheers Rich.

If you fairly handy and confident that you can do it Id work away and do it but think if its not done right you face serious engine damage if belt comes off for piece of mind go to a good garage then you know it done right

Re: Cambelt change

If its a turbo really should be looking at a new tensioner/idler pulleys aswell to be safe bearing in mind how long they`re on your car,not a cheap job for the lot though.


Im hoping to get a mate to do mine who`s a mechanic,done belt changes on other cars just dont fancy doin the scooby,can get parts for about 170 then i`ll probly give me mate 100 for doin it,i`ll still be happy at that.

Aint like its a regular thing.
