We recommend to change the cambelt or the timing belt every 2 years but usually some of our costumers changes about 4 years which is not suitable for the car.

2005 peugeot 206 GTI 180 cambelt changed at 82,000kms water pump now leaking advised to change cambelt at same time as replacing water pump odometer is now at 92,000 kms. What do you think?


when replacing the pump if the timing belt has to be removed , it is not necessary to replace the belt PROVIDING THAT THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE IS FOLLOWED
before removing the belt mark it with an arrow indication direction of movement replace the belt with the arrow correctly position as before removal
timing belts ( for want of a better description) breakin from running in a set direction
if replaced running in the reverse direction then the "breakin" gets far worse and early belt failure occurs
when the belt was replaced , if the cam seals , crank seals idler and hydraulic adjuster were not replaced then it might be worthwhile to have it done with the water pump as oil on a belt reduces the life to about 1/2

How will I know when a water pump is getting damaged


Normally a water pump leaks when the bushings wear out or are damaged, other than that check the temp gauge.

Jetta TDI Coolant leak from behind tming belt.


hi from uk from the symptom/location you say water leak is coming from ? this is most likely to be the water pump that is leaking ? considering age/milage ? this is not uncommon however as the water pump is driven by cambelt this unfortunately means you will have to replace the cambelt and tensioner as well as the water pump it is policy never to use old belt/tensioner once disturbed for obvious reasons i'm sure you have heard stories of result of cambelt failure? and the serious damage caused to engine ? also if leak is serious? this will deteriate c/belt so advice you consider renewal asap cambeltkit +tensioner in uk casts approx under £45 and w/pump a little less you can obtain from most good motor factors/superstores avoid dealers this job is not too difficult diy with haynes or w/shop manual if you follow instructions and have tool kit hope this helps?

Waterpump failure. Rattling and water leaking. Do I just replace waterpump, or do I go all out and replace cambelt and tensioners, timers, seals etc


I'm not sure about Audi 80's, but on A4's you have to pull the whole front of the car off (bumper, headlights, radiators, radiator support panel - the a/c radiator just moves out of the way thanks to long rubber hoses, so not discharge/recharge necessary), but then you get fantastic access and it's really not that hard a job (an hour give or take).
If you are going this far, do the timing belt, thermostat and accessary belts. For an extra $100 in parts, you only pay about another 30 mins labour. And if you're doing it yourself - well, you're there anyway!
If getting done professionally, go to a VW/Audi specialist as they will have the specialist tools necessary for the job - a regular garage WILL NOT!!

Cam belt/water pump for Rover 25


if all the other rollers and tensioners have covered 37000miles and they need changing why leave the water pump,it has as much tension on it as the rest of the tensioners......if they wont change it ask them to guarantee it against failure if they are that confident it shouldnt be a problem,or if it does fail will they pay for the replacement cylinder head/engine ?because it will destroy it !!!!!!
