Audi cambelt change & timing belt replacement
Frequently asked questions
+

What is a cambelt and what does it do?

The cambelt helps your engine run efficiently by making sure its valves open and close in sync. It ensures that your engine parts run in harmony and keeps the timings just right to make the engine as efficient as possible.

+

Does my car have a cambelt (timing belt) or timing chain?

In order to tell if your car has a timing belt or a timing chain you must inspect your engine. Check the side of your engine, if it has a tinplate or plastic cover, you've got yourself a timing belt. If your engine has neither of those, it has a timing chain.

+

Where is the cambelt located?

Where it is located depends on your vehicle:

·      In front wheel drive vehicles, it is usually on the left hand side of your engine

·      In rear wheel drive vehicles, it is usually at the front of the engine, normally protected by a plastic cover

+

How do I know my cambelt needs changing?

Signs which point to a problem include:

·      High pitched, whirring engine sounds

·      Juddering when the engine is on

·      Difficulty starting up your vehicle

·      Spots of oil or coolant on your cambelt

+

What happens if your Cambelt breaks?

If the component breaks it could cause serious internal damage to your engine, which can be very expensive and at times impossible to fix.

+

How long does a cambelt change take?

A cambelt change typically takes 3 to 4 hours, including a water pump replacement. So, ensure to set a whole morning/afternoon aside for the job to be carried out. 

+

Should I change my Water Pump and Cambelt at the same time?

Your garage may have recommended a water pump change at the same time as your cambelt replacement. This is because both parts are located in the same area and typically wear out at the same point in a vehicle's life. Changing both parts at the same time can save on future labour costs.

What is a cambelt?

The cambelt is a rubber belt which controls the timing of a vehicle’s internal combustion engines. It is vital in the process of making the vehicle run smoothly as it also ensures the crankshaft and camshaft rotate in synchronisation.

A snapped cambelt is uncommon however tension issues are more widespread.

If the belt is too loose it will end up whipping around inside the engine which will cause a variety of knock on effects and if the belt is too tight it will put a strain on the bearings of the cogs it's fitted to.

A tight belt will cause a whining noise to be emitted from the engine so if you hear this sound make sure to book a repair as soon as possible. You shouldn’t wait until this happens though, as the damage caused by a faulty cambelt will end up costing you even more money in repairs.



Signs that your cambelt needs replacing

  • A squealing noise can be heard when starting the vehicle
  • Starting issues
  • A glazed or glossy look to the belt



Cambelt replacement prices

As you will see in the FAQ section and video above, the cost of a cambelt repair can vary depending on the vehicle and garage. The biggest cost associated with this job type will be the labour itself.

This is because the parts are based deep within the engine and getting to them takes time. The components themselves won’t cost you a huge amount as they are not complex so don’t be surprised to see labour costs making up the biggest part of the bill.

Even if your cambelt doesn’t completely break its important to keep an eye on the component as per the instructions provided by your cars manufacturer, if you leave it for too long, the belt could snap and cause catastrophic engine failure.

The cambelt will need replacing at some point, usually around the 30,000 – 50,000 mile mark but make sure to consult the vehicles owner’s manual to double check as it may vary depending on the vehicle.
