It's been 32000 miles since the last timing belt change (about 3 years ago). I didn't own the car when it was last done, have receipt which lists what was changed:
new timing belt
belt and pulley kit
When I get this changed does everyone think I'm best getting all that done again?
I don't see a cambelt tensioner and idler in that list?
Quick list of what needs replacing at the second belts change:
2) Cambelt tensioner.
3) Cambelt idler.
4) Balance belt.
5) Balance belt tensioner.
6) Rocker cover gaskets x2 (inner and outer gaskets).
6) Auxilliary belt.
7) Auxiliary belt tensioner.
8) Spark plugs x8 (if they haven't been changed before, they must be changed now).
The variator and waterpump are 'optional' but I would change them now as belts need to be off to do the job so now is ideal time to do it. Waterpumps are quite robust but they do go wrong with age - they've been known to seize with age, stripping the cambelt. Variator - well you changed that before so I'd just do it again - if it rattles later then off come the belts again. Good tip on variators is to keep the oil clean - change oil/filter every 6,000 miles which keep them going longer.
Finally as indicated DO NOT
take it to any old garage. Camlocks are needed, also care is needed to remove the plugs and coils when dismantling rocker cover. Also rocker cover gaskets must be renewed and replaced carefully othewise oil leaks down the plugholes and fouls the plugs. You DO NOT
want this to happen.
Hope that helps.
