What is a Cambelt or Timing Belt ?

​The cambelt, also commonly  known as a timing belt, is one of the most important parts of your engine. It’s a rubber belt that keeps the rotation of the crankshaft and camshaft synchronised. By doing this it makes sure your engine’s valves open and close correctly which makes sure your engine stays healthy despite the strain it’s put under when driving.

How often do i need to change my timing belt​ ?

We recommend changing your cambelt once every four years for cars registered before September 2009, and every five years for cars registered after. If you reach the recommended mileage limit before 4 or 5 years, you may need to change the cambelt sooner. For more information, contact

Cambelt with Water Pump

Your water pump is driven by the cambelt and provides circulation of the fluids which cool your engine. In some cases a water pump can seize, which can cause the cambelt to stop suddenly and break. For this reason, it makes sense to replace the water pump at the same time as the cambelt. Completing both jobs at the same time gives you total peace of mind and acts as a cost effective method.
