    Default This mornings job: CDTI 150 Timing belt kit and water pump, with Pics :)

    As above..

    Wasnt happy that I didnt know 100% the history of the current belt etc on my car - so popped to VX this morning and all the bits were in stock and I set too it replacing the full timing kit and water pump.

    Reasonably simple job to be honest..

    Few things you need to remember - like the various tools you will need from E sockets to T sockets etc.. Plus a bit of silicon sealant

    Haynes will tell you all the torque settings - thats about all its good for really

    Some Pics for you:

    All exposed:

    Timing Marks lined up - forgot to take one of the cam pully - but you will see that below on fitment of new belt:
    VecEstate-34.jpg

    Tensioner before I touched it:

    VecEstate-37.jpg

    Old bits out
    VecEstate-32.jpg

    New bits fitted and Timing marks confirmed:
    VecEstate-38.jpg
    VecEstate-39.jpg
    VecEstate-40.jpg
    You can see from the above that using a Genuine belt the belt has timing markers - so you cant lose the timing of the car.. make sure all your markings line up before you remove the old belt - fit the new one and line the yellow lines with the timing marks and you cant go wrong

    All fitted with new belt, tensioner, pully and pump!.

    IMPORTANT: When you remove the water pump.. you MUST clean up the old bolts with a wire brush etc. to get all the old sealant off.. then apply silicon sealant to the threads of the bolts. Work it into the thread with your fingers - not too much, but enough to 'seal' the thread.. this is important as the bolt holes are in the coolant stream..

    use the correct Torque settings on all bolts...

    Job Done!

    Glad I did do it too as the belt wasnt a GM belt - although it was a gates belt - and the pully and pump were something different too.. Suspect that the last time the belt was done it was only the belt and everything else remained.
