and replace Cambelt (timing belt)
- Additional servicing may be required for turbocharged and diesel vehicles or heavy use (i.e. towing)
Why is it necessary to replace my Cambelt (timing belt)
- Cambelts naturally wear and require replacement over a certain time frame or mileage interval. Recommended replacement is at 100,000km or 5 years. We also suggest you replace the water pump, tensioners, idler bearings and usually the oil seals at the same time. These other components have done the same mileage as the cambelt, and it more economical to replace at this time than later.
- If your cambelt breaks, the timing process is effectively ruined and there is a high risk of serious engine damage. Without the cambelt, the pistons move freely and separate the engine valves so a simple ‘miss-time’ can lead to a collision of these parts.
