Cambelt / Timing Belt Replacement & Repairs

Cambelts should be changed every 100,000km. When was yours last changed?

A cambelt (or timing belt) is designed to drive your valve train assembly. It keeps your engine in time with other engine components, stopping the valves and pistons from colliding with each other. If the cambelt is not replaced at regular service intervals it could cause serious damage to your car.

Unfortunately, a snapped cambelt can have a devastating effect on your car’s engine, causing many thousands of dollars of repair work, and in many cases, it is more cost effective to put a second-hand engine in.

Replacing your cambelt every 100,000 km will reduce the risk of it causing serious engine damage.

 

What do we replace?

Cambelt equipment

There are several important components that should be replaced when changing a vehicle’s cambelt. These include:
  • The water pump
  • The camshaft seal
  • The crankshaft seal
  • The belt tensioner
  • The cambelt idler 
 
It is advisable to replace these components at the same as the cambelt / timing belt. The main reason for this is that the majority of the labour needed to replace the components will already have been done when the cambelt is being replaced.
 
Please be aware that lower price cambelt replacement estimates may not include some of these parts that should be replaced.
