Hi there,

My Alfa Romeo 156 TS 2.0 2000 Selespeed requires the timing belt to be changed
.
So wanted to know what exactly does it requires, i was just assuming that it requires just the belt and it would do, but the shopkeeper said it requires a complete timing belt kit, which includes the timing belt, the tensioner adjuster, the idler bearing and the balance belt kit

So could some of you genius explain what exactly is the requirement and if can it be done at home?

Thanks in advance

On a 2.0l you need to change main timing belt with tensioner and idler.
also balance belt with tensioner.
you could also get variator replaced if its getting noisey on tick over

try here if you ring them up with your chasis number you will get the exact belts for your car,,,

Alfa Romeo 156 Parts


its £83.95 for cam belt kit (required) , £65.55 for balance kit (required) , £95.00 for variator (optional)

for fitting you will require cam locking tools also sold on here for £40.00 and here is a guide of the process but im not a mechanic i would not say its easy DIY but a mechanic might disagree and i dont touch mine myself i have a mate who does my car :cool:

a good mechanic would have this job done is less than 2 hours,a toy town mechanic half a day and a novice really taking there time maybe 4 hours

Basically I would advise getting a specialist to do this job. It needs to be done properly and carefully, anything less may result in disaster.
