440 B1U -95 How to replace timing belt?

Post by Quickie2 » Fri Apr 03, 2009 4:22 pm

Next step for me is to change the timing belt on my car, god knows when It was done last time. Does anyone have some good instructions for this, do I need any special tool?

thanks in advance.

Special tools are listed in the attached instructions. The only one that may cause a problem is the tension gauge.

The belt should be replaced every 60,000 miles (96,560.64kms give or take a centimetre :) ) or 72 months, whichever occurs first.

Thanks mate, your service is amazing. I've recommended you to a swedish forum :D

My replacement belt doesn't have any markings, how do I know where to place the belt? :?

Another question: this hole for locking the crankshaft with 8mm bolt, Is It to the right of oil dip stick, there I can find a torx bolt. Is it this one? :|

I have checked with another book which does not mention marks on the belt and I have never changed a timing belt that did need to be aligned with the timing marks.

The hole for the timing pin is covered by a plug so I doubt that it will be a torx bolt.

Ok, that's good.
I can't find this plug, you have a picture or something showing where It is? :shock:

Another thing, On the gearbox housing there are some marks that should be aligned with a mark on the flywheel. The marking on the gearbox is from 0 degrees to 8 degrees. There are 2 line for 0 degrees and then 3 lines for 8 degrees. Where should the marking be? Or maybe this doesn't matter as I lock the crankshaft? 8)

The only picture I have is on the attachment above at #4. The location in the attachment is borne out by the other book I have as
Remove the plug near the dipstick tube.
There are no pictures at all in that book.

The only other thing I have been able to find is in VADIS parts. Looking at the engine assembly it is possible that the plug is #8 as it is near the dipstick tube and lying at the right angle to be #4 in the original picture.

If you are locking the crankshaft the positions of the marks on the flywheel and gearbox should not change.
