Cambelt Change in Winchester
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.

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.

If you are looking for cambelt repair or cambelt repalcement, WhoCanFixMyCar is the best place to find cambelt change cost online.

Cambelt change is a relatively simple repair and cambelt replacement price should generally be close the the national average as shown at the top of this page.

However, it is impossible to predict cambelt replacement cost as each car is different, as is the extent of damage.

How much to change timing belt?

(A timing belt is another word for a cambelt)

The cost to change a timing belt should not vary from the cost to change a cambelt as they are literally the same thing.

So if you want to know how much to change a timing belt, you can use the form at the top of this page to get a quote for a new timing belt.
