    Default Gsi timing belt change

    Apart from the obvious timing belt kit and a new water pump, is there anything else needed for this job?

    Might as well do the auxillary belt at the same time whilst the covers are off?

    Antifreeze too. Might as well do a flush whilst the pump is out.

    Agreed, cambelt kit, auxiliary belt, water pump, and coolant

    However if you are flushing the coolant the radiator may collapse (about a 1:25 chance)
    Therefore worth checking the condition of the coolant being removed
