Timing Belt (Cambelt) Replacement
Timing belts (also known as cambelts) are an important part of a car’s engine which controls the timing of the engine’s valves. It is typically made of rubber and other fibers which steadily degrade over time, leading to a need for replacement before the belt breaks with costly consequences.

A Cambelt or ‘Timing Belt’ change is one of the most important aspects of maintaining your car, if you neglect it – you could end up needing a new engine. The Volkswagen Group recommend most VW, Audi, SEAT and Škoda engines must have their cambelt changed between every 60,000 to 80,000 miles or 4/5 years depending on engine type. Your service manual will tell you the correct mileage for your cambelt change or better still simply give us a quick call on 020 8133 5753 or email your query and we’ll let you know straightaway.
- Are you 100% sure that your cambelt has been changed at the correct time or mileage?
- Are you 100% sure that your cambelt has been changed at all?
- If you have just purchased or are looking at purchasing a used car, does the previous owner have proof of a cambelt change at the correct mileage?
If you have answered any of these questions with NO then we recommend you book a cambelt change with Parkhill Motors.
Many of the VAG engines have cambelt driven water pumps which as many people know are prone to breaking causing engine over heating, possible head gasket failure and severe engine damage. If your water pump is cambelt driven we recommend you change this at the same time as the cambelt. In addition this is the ideal time to flush your coolant system and replace with new VAG approved G12 coolant to protect your engine.
