How to change a timing belt


You may follow these steps:

1. Remove any shrouding in the wheel so that you can access the lower timing belt pulley and the crankshaft snout.

2. Locate the timing marks on the flywheel and cam, then you set them both to TDC. The flywheel pulley TDC mark is accessible through a hole in the bellhousing. The camshaft TDC is easy to locate, especially if you added some marks.

3. Support the engine with something like skyhook if you want to remove the rightside motor mount. Most belts are installed with a mount in the center, making them problematic when changing. You can now remove the motor mount temporarily.

4. Freeing up the belt tensioner pulley can release any belt tension.

5. Slip through the new belt into place and make sure that you are not disturbing the cam or crank pulleys, or else the engine will be out of time if changes and adjustments are made. Then check by slowly rotating the crank to two full turns with a socket on the crank snout.

Gearbox chatter on tick over do they suffer from dualmass problems also is there a quick way to change the cambelt


Dual Mass Flywheel, and will also need new clutch Remove the engine coverUsing a [16 mm], rotate the tensioner arm clockwise (about 14° )and remove the belt from the pulley.
Remove the power steering pump pulley, idler pulley, tensioner pulley and crankshaft pulley.
Remove the upper and lower timing belt covers.

Remove the auto tensioner.
NOTE
Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing mark to set the No.1 cylinder's piston to TDC (compression stroke).
At this time, the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and cylinder head cover should coincide with each other.




Unbolt the tensioner to remove the timing belt.
NOTE
If you plan to use the timing belt again, mark the rotation direction on the belt so you reinstall it correctly.

SERVICE MANUAL
Applies to: Santa Fe 2004
GROUP
Engine Mechanical System Timing System



INSTALLATION
Install the idler pulley to water pump boss.
NOTE
Insert and install the idler pulley to the roll pin that is pressed in the water pump boss.


Install the tensioner arm and plain washer to the cylinder block.
Install the tensioner pulley to the tensioner arm.
Install the camshaft sprockets and align the timing marks.

NOTE
When installing the camshaft sprockets, fasten them tightly while holding the hexagonal part of the camshaft.
Before installing the timing belt, if the timing marks of the cam sprocket and the cylinder head cover do not coincide, do not rotate the cam sprocket more than 3 teeth in either direction.
Rotating the sprocket more than 3 teeth may allow the valve and piston to touch each other.
If the cam sprocket is rotated more than 3 teeth unavoidably, rotate the crankshaft counter - clock wise a bit before rotating the cam sprocket.
Install the auto tensioner to the front case.
NOTE
At this time auto tensioner's set pin should be compressed and secured with set pin.




Align the timing marks of each sprocket and install the timing belt in the following order. Crankshaft sprocket--> Idler pulley--> camshaft sprocket (LH side)--> Water pump pulley--> camshaft sprocket (RH side)--> Tensioner pulley.
NOTE
In this step, No. 1 cylinder is in the TDC (Compression stroke).
Be very careful if you use your fingers.



Pull out the set pin of the auto tensioner.



Install the upper and lower timing belt covers.
Install the power steering pump pulley, idler pulley, tensioner pulley and crankshaft pulley.
Using the wrench [16mm], rotate the tensioner arm clockwise (about 14°) and install the belt to the pulley.
Install the engine cover.
How to adjust the tension of the timing belt
Rotate the crankshaft 2 turns clockwise and measure the projected length of the auto tensioner at TDC (# 1 Compression stroke) after 5 minutes.
The projected length should be 6-8 mm.
Verify that the timing marks of each sprocket are in their specified position.
NOTE
If the timing marks are not in their specified position, repeat from 6 above.

How do you synchronize timing belts when installing them?


find the mark on the flywheel. it will be 3 marks close together ,( it will NOT be the ignition timing mark) line the middle mark to the pointer on the flywheel. cover. (top of engine, to the rear) now one cam pulley mark will be at 12 o clock, and the other at 6 o clock, it doesnt matter which. once the belt is on and the marks lined up, then tension the belts. once they are on, you can put the front crank pulley on and it should run. the cam pulleys may want tp turn one way or the other when lining up the marks, but they must end up, tensioned, with the marks lined up.

Looking for timing belt marks on vw 2 liter jetta. car does not want to idle must rev up.


There is no manual adjustment for timing, this is done digitally by using a VAG 1552 scan tool or equivalent. Now if timing mark is all you need just to serve your curiosity then there are a couple.

Set engine to TDC for cylinder #1 by turning the crankshaft until timing mark on flywheel or torque converter aligns with marks on the transmission case.
  • Manual Transmission
Confirm that engine is set to TDC for cyl #1 by checking that the timing mark on the flywheel lines up with notch at inspection hole on manual trans.

  • Automatic Transmission
Confirm that engine is set to TDC for cyl #1 by checking that the timing mark on torque coverter lines up with the edge of the inspection hole on automatic transmission.

Remove upper toothed belt cover. Once removed, you will see the letters O.T. with an arrow on the upper rear toothed belt guard. Check that mark on camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on toothed belt guard. This brings camshaft to TDC for cyl. #1.

It is unlikely that a belt has skipped a cog, but if that happens your engine will run very rough or not operate at all. You might have other issue in the air metering sensors (MAF) which doesn't take account of temperature. That means whether the engine is cold or holt it will always run rough and definitely activate an MIL.

The crankshaft should have the timing mark on the crank pulley (Notch in the outer edge of the pulley near the keyway) It should align with the timing mark on the oil pump. (With the keway turned to about the 3 O'clock position.)

Align the marks on the camshaft timing pulleys with the corresponding dots on the front plate.

If you are installing a new belt, it should have 2 solid white lines printed on it that you would align with the timing marks on the cams and a dotted white line to align with the timing mark on the crank.

It makes a difference which way you put the belt on. (Which edge faces the front of the engine.) Most, but not all brands of belts have arrows and the word "FRONT" on them to tell you which edge of the belt shoud face the front of the motor. If there is no mark to tell you which edge is front, the letters on the belt must be able to be read correctly as viewed from the front of the vehicle.

Timing 1980 vw pickup


You can remove the #1 spark plug and get the piston at top dead center, (all the way up in the cylinder). You can also check the access hole in the top of the transmission housing, to line up the TDC timing mark on the flywheel to the transmission housing. The mark on the crank pulley is rather hard to see, just a little mark "V'ed" into the pulley lip.

How to set timing belt


always be sure to set to top dead cyl1 before removing belt. there will be mark on the cam gear and another on flywheel seen through passage in bellhousing there will also be a timing mark on the balance shaft. I found it best to ignore timing mark on balance shaft gear and just remove distributor cap. you will see rotor pointing to #1 plug wire and rotor will also line up to a small notch in distributor body. this way is more accurate. also after setting timing belt turn motor over 2 full turns then recheck timing marks again. while your in there check the bearings in all idler pulleys and tensioner pulleys, hate to have to go back in there again just for a noisey bearing later. good luck.
