CAR TIMING BELT REPLACEMENT
The timing belt in your vehicle controls the synchronisation between the crankshaft and camshafts. If it not replaced within the recommended timeframe it can slip, stretch or break, causing major engine damage.
The timing belt uses idler pulleys and tensioner to keep tension on the timing belt. This allows the belt to stay in correct alignment.
The units are usually sealed bearings which cannot be lubricated. On some vehicles, the water pump runs off the timing belt. Therefore, it is important to inspect the water pump and replace it at the same time, if required. We usually recommend this, to avoid extra labour 6 months later.
