Timing belt

Timing belt replacement from only £180.00 incl VAT.

Replacing your timing belt at the correct time or mileage is absolutely crucial.

The timing belt is an integral part of your engine and , if it fails, so does your engine, causing your car to shut down.

Unfortunately, in most cases, there are no obvious signs the timing belt is nearing failure; it will just break. It is essential that you check your owners manual to ensure replacement is carried out in line with the manufacturers reccommendations.

 

 

How the timing belt works.

The rubber timing belt is part of most internal combustion engines and is responsible for synchronizing the engine's functions. It controls the rotation of the camshaft and the crankshaft and the opening and closing of the engine's many valves to allow air and gas in and out.

When the timing belt breaks, the valves, which are very light , will open at the wrong time and hit the larger pistons which can cause major damage to the engine.

 

Replacing a timing belt can cost as little as £180.00, however replacing a broken timing belt can cost £1000's.
