    Default Video Renewing 1.9CDTi Cambelt & Intake Manifold - Interesting

    Not a "How 2" as such, but came across this speeded up video of someone changing their cambelt and intake manifold, pretty interesting for anyone who wants to see

    It's not a difficult job, and so far mine's not had any issues. I did this several thousand miles ago and was recently at 130mph+ on a runway so I think I did it properly...

    If I had a second car to use I would definately give it a go, big job for me to take on as I have limited knowledge, taking off the throttlebody and EGR to clean is the biggest job I have done lol!

    Don't knock yourself - a lot won't tackle the jobs you have already done - you will surprise your self what you are capable of doing once you start. The secret of doing a lot of these jobs is to get yourself some basic quality tools ie. spanners and sockets (pay a bit extra for quality stuff - it will soon pay for itself) and secondly do your homework before you start by reading and researching on sites like this - which makes the job a whole lot simpler. To start with do your own servicing and straight away you will probably have saved most of the expense of some of your tools and you will have the satisfaction of knowing what has been done and that it has been done properly. Once you have done these simpler jobs your confidence will grow and you can move on to more complex jobs - Good Luck

    I haven't yet changed the oil on this car myself, just due to the fact I dont have axle stands and wouldn't like to get under the car without them to do the filter. Living in a flat doesn't help either, I'd love a house with a driveway!

    Other than that I've serviced all my cars, just with big jobs like the cambelt I would probably get it changed then have trouble putting it back together lol. Limited knowledge on what everything does and what all the components are doesn't help either!

    When I move into a house with a driveway (or maybe even a garage) I'd be more confident at bigger jobs, let the learning begin!!!!!!!
