Bearings - All cambelts rely on bearings to keep
them guided and in most times tensioned correctly. When we dismantle
the front of your engine we check there very carefully and phone
you with a GST inclusive cost to replace them.
- Auto Tensioners. If your vehicle runs this system
of cambelt tensioning we always advise this be replaced. Generally
included in our quote.
- Oil Seals - behind all camshaft, balanceshafts,
oil pumps and cranshaft gears, there si an oil seal. Oil on cambelts
soon causes the belts to rot and fail prematurely. Ask us for a
price to replace your seals!!!

requires removal of the cambelt to replace - even if driven by an auxiliary
belt. Any sign of leakage or noise would indicate replacement required.
Please note: Unless there is an obvious fault,
water pump life cannot be guaranteed. You may decide to replace this
along with your cambelt for which we would be happy to quote.
Belts. These belts run auxiliary components, e.g. alternator,
power steering, air conditioning and sometimes water pump. In most cases
cambelt replacement requires removal of all drive belts, thus making
inspection for worn or damaged belts easy. If required, new drive belts
can be fitted on reassembly.
Please note: If new drive belts are fitted
they may require readjustment due to stretching, causing an obvious
squealing noise usually when cold. The readjustment will be carried
out at no charge.
