A cambelt or timing belt is an essential part of your vehicle's engine. If your cambelt snaps it can cause major damage to the valves and pistons, and in extreme cases it can lead to engine replacement. If cambelts are too tight they may stretch and break, if they’re too loose they won’t work efficiently.
What will happen if I do nothing?
After its replacement due date the cambelt will eventually snap whilst your engine is running. Even at idle, major engine damage can usually occur. There are no warning characteristics that would allow you to safely stop before losing power and causing possible costly damage to your engine.
What does the work involve?
Replacing the belt takes specialist training and equipment, the work will take approximately 3 hours in a fully equipped workshop.
What should I do?
During the cambelt replacement we will also complete a vehicle health check to reassure you of your vehicle road worthiness. You will also have the added satisfaction of knowing that all of our work is guaranteed for parts and labour for 12 months. We will even wash your car, and be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
