This is my first post, hope someone out there will know this.
Iíve promised to help a friend of mine to change the water pump,
timing belt + tensioner. He bought a "Haynes" manual and the job is
described quite well. The problem is that I donít have the 2 tools
required to lock the cams, neither the 4 tools required to zero the
crank (rods going down through the spark plug holes). I can have them
made where I work, but Iíve never come across a petrol engine needing
such tools when changing timing belt...Will I get a good result just
if I mark the wheels and swap the belt or are all these tools really
needed??? Please note that only one cam pulley since the other cam
turns by a tothed gear.
Forgot to say that the car is a year 2000 model.
Please excuse my english, promise to work on it...
Did a Renault clio (8v) some weeks ago, piece of cake. And a Audi a4
1,9tdi (diesel) last week (not a piece of cake but it runs well). Has
also done a few Audi a6 2,5 tdi as well, horrible sight when the
timing belt snaps...
Thanx in advance
