1.8tdci timing belt change

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

I'm looking to change the timing belt and my Haynes manual says I need to remove all sorts of parts like cylinder head cover, starter motor and I need some specialist tools to lock the flywheel ring gear.  Please could some on tell if they know of a quicker way or is this correct.

Cheers in advanced

Not sure if you need to remove starter motor but the other stuff is about right. You might as well change the tensioners etc. at the same time.  Its not difficult with the right tools and equipment but if you are really unsure in my opinion get a local garage or mate who knows how to do it, as if you get it wrong it can be a problem.

You do need to remove the starter motor as this is where the locking tool bolts across there are no short cuts that I know of.

Yea was gonna change the tensioner and water pump while I was there.  It just seems very long winded and was hoping there was a quicker way😁
