2.0 TS cambelt
The engine will need timing with the cam locks as there is a vernier type adjustment on the inlet cam. This will be disturbed when you replace the variator, and there is no chance of getting the timing spot on without them.
I was thinking of doing the whole cambelt, variator, balance shaft & auxilary belt change myself, but reading this on another thread has raised a question for me.
I can get the locking tools & variator removal tool for around £40, but is that sufficient or will I need to time the cams in using the vernier pulley?
I am fairly compitent at most things, but timing cams can raise all sorts of mesuring issues and buying the required tools could mean its cheaper to get a specialist to do it, which I don't really want to do as I would like to do it myself.
Also, any idea how long it would take, as I was thinking of taking a Friday off and doing it over a weekend.
Basically I want to give myself plenty of time so as I dont have to rush it, as in my experience, thats when things go wrong!!
