Why does my timing belt need to be changed?
The timing belt is one of the hardest working parts in your engine, driving major parts of the engine and keeping everything synchronised. Changing it prevents snaps, cracks and tears which in turn minimises the risk of major engine damage.
What happens if it's not changed?
The belt can go slack, making it snap or jump. This can cause severe damage to the engine. Your car will break down and could be very expensive to repair.
What do we do?
We strip down the relevant parts of the engine and renew the timing belt and timing belt tensioner. Then we reassemble the engine and road test your car.
How often does it need to be changed?
Please consult our Service advisor.
