Timing belt change


Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 TD5. 60,111 on the clock. Haynes states should do the timing belt at 60,000. should i get it done now or is it a bit premature. Also is it something I need to get a land rover specialist to do or could my experienced mechanic friend do it.

I do mine every 50k miles on my 200tdi. There isn't anything special that a competent mechanic couldn't do. Make sure the idler is changed along with the belt. I also change the crank and cam oil seals while I'm in there. Probably should do the injection pump seal too.

after posting my last response, it started dawning on me. I was about to ask just that. I assume as it is a chain it will not degrade the way in which a rubber type belt would, so no need to change in less somthing caused the chain to get bent. correct?
