300tdi timing kits

Recommended Posts

I'm getting an annoying squeeky sound from the engine and have put it down to the belt tensioners, so i'm going to change the lot as we've done a lot of hot dusty miles in the last year.

firstly, are the kits any different? OEM or pattern (not using britpart for such a vital area!)

and how do i tell if my vehicle has had the timing belt modification which affected early vehicles? i only mention this because the bottom pulley looks very wobbly when the engine is running...

if not is there a full kit to do the lot?

The bottom pulley has nothing to do with the belt alignment problem - it's an internal timing belt alignment problem. The pulley is bolted to the damper, which is two pieces of metal with a thin strip of rubber to connect the two in a disc formation. Check the crank bolt is nice and tight, as this would cause the pulley to wobble as it eats away at the woodruff key/slot :(
