Questions & Answers about the timing belt change
What is the toothed belt/ timing belt?
The timing belt is a special form of the driving belts and consists of rubber, nylon, fabric and fiberglass tape. It is the important connection between the cam and the crankshaft and always provides the right ratio from piston to valve position. If the toothed belt breaks, the camshaft may stop, a valve protrudes into the combustion chamber, and a piston will strike it. In most cases, engine failure is the result.
The toothed belt is always stressed in the engine. It holds a weight of 2 tons and rotates at several thousand revolutions per minute (rpm). It must be replaced after certain intervals - according to manufacturers recommendations.
The replacement of the timing belt should in any case not be delayed so that the vehicle warranty stays maintained.It is important that when replacing the timing belt, the attachments such as tensioning rollers and deflection pulleys must also be replaced as these perform the same work as the toothed belt.
