cambelt gone

Recommended Posts

I agree with Ralf. Any vehicle new to you I would always replave the cambelt even if I'm told by the vendor when it has been done. Trust yourself when it comes to something criticle, not someone who is interested in a sale.

On a 2/5 N/A (or turbo for that matter), the pushrods will bend, and that's all. The rockers are very tough - up to and including the 200TDi, so don't tend to break. Valve caps may break in half or come off and get flushed into the sump, where you can leave them (the oil pick-up strainer will prevent them from going anywhere. Pushrods are only about £3 each, and then the timing belt and tensioner, timing cover dust seal, timing cover gasket, water pump gasket, and maybe some valve caps are the minimum needed to do the repair.

change the timing belt if you don't know when it was done,

Might be a good idea of the old one just snapped Lol laugh.gif
