Frequently asked questions
+

What is a Cambelt?

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

Where is the Cambelt located?

So, where is the cambelt exactly? This depends on your vehicle:
  • In front wheel drive vehicles the cambelt is usually on the left hand side of your engine
  • In rear wheel drive vehicles the cambelt is usually at the front of the engine, usually protected by a plastic cover
+

How much does a Cambelt Change cost?

While the rubber Cambelt itself costs very little, there is a certain amount of work and expertise involved in fitting it and ensuring the engine's timing is set correctly. Cambelt change costs vary, ranging from £300-£600. The price will depend on:
  • The make and model of your vehicle
  • Your location
  • Your mechanic or garage
+

What are the symptoms of a worn Cambelt?

There are many signs which point to a problem with your cambelt including: 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 cambelt breaks it could cause serious internal damage to your engine which can be very expensive or even impossible to fix.
+

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 change. This is because both parts are located in the same area and typically become worn out at the same point in a vehicle's life. Changing both parts at the same time can save on future labour costs.

Cambelt / Timing Belt

The cambelt is a rubber belt which controls the timing of a vehicle’s internal combustion engines. It is a vital part in making the vehicle run smoothly. It ensures that the crankshaft and camshaft rotate in synchronisation. A timing belt is another word for a cam belt.

A snapped timing belt is rare, whereas tension issues are more common.

If the belt is too loose it will end up whipping around inside the engine, which will cause a variety of knock on effects.


Contrastingly, if the belt is too tight, it will put a strain on the bearings of the cogs it is fitted to.

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

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. If you want to replace the timing belt yourself, don't! Trying to carry out a repair yourself is incredibly dangerous!



Signs that your Cambelt needs Replacing

If you hear a squealing noise when starting the vehicle, it may be seriously damaged.

Another sign that you have issues with your cambelt is spotting that the component has a glazed or glossy look when you carry out a visual inspection.
