Hi guys

 

Can someone remind me what I should be changing at the second timing belt interval.

Full timing belt kit including timing belt and tensioners

Water pump

 

Anything else?

My car's actually done 101k, but I'm going to be rebuilding the head anyhow so may as well start with a new timing kit.

 

Cheers

How about an auxiliary belt as well whilst it's off?

Don't forget the correct coolant seeing as the water pump is coming out.

Yep the latter I took for granted, but you're right about the aux belt, they are cheap as chips anyhow.

Use a timing belt toolkit so you can lock the engine on tdc without it it can be done but the timing might jump a tooth or two.... meaning you'll be fiddling to get the timing back to what it should be.

I personally wouldn't renew the coolant unless it's really old. I just drained and caught most of what came out. Fairly rusty looking but topped it up with distilled water. Under a year since it was renewed when I did the heater matrix.

As np said lock the crankshaft and camshaft if possible too. I just made sure I didn't turn the camshaft. Takes a lot too shift it but mark it up just in case maybe.

You also might be looking at a new engine mount...

Excellent, cheers for the tips. yeah I'm looking at engine mounts now. Building my shopping list 

Whole head will be coming out for this, performance cam going in after a skim & port/polish so I guess I'll have to ensure it's all aligned correctly when that goes in.

I'm literally just pricing the bits up for mine.
Where did you get them in the end?

I've not bought them yet, but GSF said about £60 for the full set from a recommended brand, and £30 for the 'premium' water pump

Through this forum of course, they give excellent discounts.

Discounts are big compared to what the mark up price is on their site but there's just as good to be had elsewhere. I like blue!

SKF all the way!

Are you replacing the vibration damper as well?

I would be looking to change everything that needs changing. Does that kit above include it?

 

Edit: Oh I see, typically mine is a crossover year so I'll need to get the engine number. Is that on the cam cover?

Oooooh they're a right pain apparently. Give 'em your reg hopefully it's not the hydraulic tensioner as above

Is it a case of one type of tensioner or the other or do some engines have both of these fitted?

One or the other. GSF or TPS will know which. Phone 'em up or use the chat box on the site

I've just got a quote from Sere Seat parts and I asked about the tensioners and he said the hydraulic type were fitted on the 1.8t engines.
My link above says otherwise...
