SOURCE: how to release hydraulic timing belt tensioner

After you set your timing marks, remove the bolt from
the center of the tensioner. Remove the tensioner, and put it in a vise with small wood blocks to prevent
any damage to the tensioner. Also there may be a plug at the base of the tens. place a socket or flat washers around the plug to prevent damage. There are small holes in the push rod and housing slowly
compress the push rod to line up the two holes.
And insert a pin in the holes. this will keep the
tensioner compressed until.you're ready for it.
Also be sure to closly match the new belt and the
old one. There are two timing belts for this engine.
One is a 195 tooth belt the other is 201, if the belt
you use is a little to long, it will slip on the water
pump and cause overheat problems.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Hi

These engines are not safe and I would bet you have some valve damage. you dont need to remove the engine to fit the belt however so if you want to try your luck then it might be worth a try. Mitsubishi's in my experience always damage something when the belt snaps.

How many km before I must replace my cambelt and tensioner on corsa B 2002 1,4i. driving short distances


100.000 klms is the recommended distance
the destroyer of belts is oil so when replacing the belt , idlers , hydraulic tensioners and crank and cam shaft seal should also be done as well
if there was signs of oil in the cover , reduce that to half the distance

View of mark for timing belt.


hi from uk the cambelt/timing belt comes as a kit ie timing belt and tensioner cost £50 here in uk ? it is not too difficult diy job approx 2hours the engine must 1st be set to TDC number 1 firing then at this setting the cam cog mark is a hole drilling in the web of cog and should line up at 12 oclock upwards and using a mirror look thro drill hole and you will see a vertical notch/groove behind on font engineface this is correct mark the crank cog mark lines up with aother mark on engine front face at approx 12 30 pm oclock ? if now set you slacken tensioner bolts and push t/pully away to left from belt ? then remove belt next remove complete tensioner assy after undoing bolts then fit new tensioner push t/pully to left from belt run and lock bolt/s recheck t/marks then fit new belt from c/shaft in anticlockwise rotation when fitted release tensioner bolt and allow to tension belt push t/pully onto belt and lock up tensioner bolts20=27 Nm rotate engine manually for four turns then recheck marks ? should still aligne then re assemble torque crank bolt to =140-150 Nm A LITTLE HINT ? b4 you remove the water pump belt ? slacken thefour 10 mm headed bolts (spanner size) that secure w/pump pully to pump it will be easier to halt rotation of pully if you holt belt tight by hand this pully has to come off to remove c/belt covers same for power steer belt which is also driven from the w/pump pully the power steer pump slide adjuster has a 12 mm bolt you slacken and best done with open end spanner ? after slackening the pump mounting bolts/nuts underneath pump hope you can follow this info/tips wish you good luck from uk

Settings to replace cam belt


There should be marks stamped into the cam and crank gears that need to line up with corresponding marks on the backing plate before you remove the cambelt.

If there are no markings, you need to make your own.

Rotate crank until at TDC (reinstall the crank drivebelt pulley loosely and front cover to do this, then take them off again)

Once at TDC, use correction fluid and mark the crank position twice - once on the crank gear itself and a corresponding mark on the backing plate.

Ditto for the cam gear.

Make sure these marks are aligned when cambelt is replaced, turn engine one full revolution when new cambelt is on to double check marks line up where they should and you're good to go.

Sometimes the cam isn't marked but the crank gear is. In that case line up the crank gear and use the above step to mark the cam gear.

Be precise as the cam gear will most likely move when you take the cambelt off due to tension from the cam on the rockers

Hope this helps :)
