The cambelt is one of the hardest working parts in your engine, driving major parts of the engine and keeping everything synchronised. Changing it prevents snaps, cracks and tears which in turn minimises the risk of major engine damage.

What happens if it’s not changed?

The belt can go slack, making it snap or jump. This can cause severe damage to the engine. Your car will break down and could be very expensive to repair

How often does it need to be changed?

Depending on the Manufacturer it varies, but as a rule of thumb, it’s 4 – 5 years, or this may need to be changed sooner for high mileage drivers.

Now the technical bit – Genuine Cambelt

The cambelt connects the camshaft to the crankshaft. If the cambelt fails, the engine valves can collide with the pistons and cause major engine damage. Therefore it is essential that the cambelt and other related parts are replaced at the recommended intervals.

A Genuine Cambelt is made from high-strength material which prevents stretching, while being wear-resistant, highly durable and extremely resistant to heat and moisture. Each component is of identical quality to those produced when your vehicle was manufactured and is designed in conjunction with all other related parts, so they continue to work together in perfect harmony.

The two-year warranty covers claims at home and abroad and covers any engine damage that occurs as a consequence of the cambelt failing.
