Cambelt ChangeKeep everything in time

What is a cambelt?

A cambelt is also known as a timing belt and it is the most important maintenance item within your vehicle. A cambelt is often ribbed and is placed in the car’s engine to keep the camshaft and crank timed as it should be. It is designed to keep the bottom half of the engine in sync with the top half.

When do I need my cambelt changed?

Over time, your cambelt will stretch and as a result of this, the engine timing may get delayed. Due to this, you will require a cambelt change. Replacing your cambelt is essential as it does not last a lifetime and at central Audi VW we offer SKODA, SEAT, Audi and VW cambelt change service. Changing the cambelt on your car is a crucial element that should be considered when maintaining your vehicle. It is a part of a car which if not replaced after prolonged use and your manufacturer’s recommendations could cost you a lot of money in engine repairs.

Cambelts can also snap and if it does, it can damage your car’s engine. If it fails to properly function, both the valves and pistons in your car will start to repeatedly collide causing irreversible damage to your car’s engine making for a more expensive repairs that could of been avoided if you had an Audi or Seat Cambelt Change.

Due to both of these factors and the fact that it is subject to a great deal of wear and tear over time because of its exposure to other contaminants such as rain, ice and other products causing deterioration to its rubber construction.

Volkswagen Automotive Group recommend that Audi, Volkswagen, SEAT and SKODA vehicles should typically have a cambelt change between every 4-5 years or at the appropriate mileage interval as indicated in the vehicle service schedule.

Water pump

On many models, the water pump works very closely to the cambelt and tensioners as it pumps the coolant around the engine. Therefore replacing the water pump at the same time as the cambelt change reduces the risk of the pump failing. A defective water pump may not only leaking coolant fluid it can seize which will result in the engine overheating and causing damage to engine components which can be costly.
