Cambelt change

Postby Ric220 » 27 Jan 2016, 11:45

Hi all. My mechanic's going to change my cambelt (3.0TD) in the next couple of weeks. Is there anything else that's normally changed with it? Tensioner, water pump etc? Thanks.

The water pump is not driven by the cambelt but it would be worth changing the alternator and A/C compressor belts as they have to come off to fit the cambelt.

Many thanks. How about the tensioner?

The tensioner is a hydraulic tensioner and providing it isn't leaking and provides sufficient tension it should not need replacement.
