A little more about your Cambelt…

What does it do?

A cambelt, or timing belt as it is also known, is one of the hardest working parts of your engine and ensures the correct synchronisation of an engine's internal mechanical rotating parts.

What should it be checked and replaced periodically?

The belt revolves at 1000s of revolutions per minute, withstanding extreme mechanical and thermal stresses, so replacing the belt and tensioners at the scheduled intervals is essential maintenance. Without this maintenance, the belt can go slack, making it snap or jump and therefore cause severe damage to the engine.

What happens if it breaks?

If your car's cambelt breaks or slips, serious damage can be done to your engine's internal components as your engine's valves and pistons collide. Repairing the engine is expensive and in extreme cases fitting a new engine is the most cost effective solution.

We believe there is no better place to have your cambelt replaced than with us. Our workshop is equipped with the latest equipment and we have direct access to the latest ŠKODA technical information.

When is it time to replace the cambelt?

We recommend a change around every five years, after all, it’s not got the easiest life, what with the weather, temperature changes, oil, grit and salt all taking their toll.
