Cambelt

The cambelt or timing belt is the rubber toothed belt that links the crankshaft to the camshaft.
It coordinates & regulates timing of many engines major internal components.** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **

 

The VAG (Volkswagen Automotive Group) recommend that Audi, VW, Seat & Škoda vehicles must have their cambelt changed generally between every 60,000 to 80,000 miles or 4/5 years depending on vehicle specification.

 

To find out when your cambelt interval service is due look in your service manual, or alternatively please feel free to contact us and one of our friendly staff members we will be able to tell you.

 

Water Pump

The water pumps are a component prone to unexpected failure, usually caused by internal parts of the pump operating loose, leading to engine overheating a the pump regulates the movement of coolant from the radiator to the engine system.
Alone the water pump can prove an expensive repair as it usually requires the cambelt assembly to be stripped down.
At central standard practise is to change the water pump & coolant fluid when we replace the cambelt. As part of our Cambelt Service

 

Why is it important to replace...

The cambelt is the hardest working component in an engine. So there for it is the most likely to wear down. If the cambelt is not regularly changed it will reduce the engine performance. If the cambelt breaks, this can cause major engine damage to the valves & pistons which..........could cost you ££££ thousands to put right.
