    Default Cam belt and rollers

    Hi Just had a cambelt roller fail on my V6 CDTI . I thought they would go to 100k full service history and £56K. Lucky no damage.

    Has the cambelt been replaced previously?
    Has the car been fully serviced by VX?

    I had mine replaced at 90K miles and the two rollers and the tensioner were in very good condition

    Has the engine been suffering any juddering or hesitation?

    Whe I got the car I had EML on pressure boost Sencor and bad hestitation just over 1500rpm it was so bad it done the DMF in. It was the vains in the turbo sticking together. After trubo technics cleaned it the car was fine.

    Looks like this vibration took out the cambelt as well
    When the SCV went on mine it took the clutch with it, hopefully that was all!

    I changed my scv's when I had the trubo off. not a bad job to do. I changed my clutch when I changed the dmf.
