The cambelt (also known as the timing-belt) is one of the hardest working parts in your engine. The role of your cambelt is to ensure all major components of your engine are synchronised. If you do not get your cambelt changed you risk the belt snapping and / or a collision of engine components. This damage to your engine as result of not changing your cambelt can be both substantial and expensive.

Why does my car need a cambelt change?
The cambelt is vital for the running of your engine. If you do not get your cambelt changed the belt can snap and you risk collision of engine components. This can cause significant damage to your engine which could be very expensive to repair. During the cambelt replacement, the tensioners also need replacing in order to prevent future failure due to reusing old and potentially worn parts.
The cambelt shows no signs of damage and due to being tensioned it can not be checked for signs of wear and damage. That is why we recommend getting your cambelt changed every 4-5 years (4 years for cars registered before September 2009, 5 years after). If you are a high mileage driver you may need to change your cambelt earlier.
Why does my waterpump need changing?
The waterpump works very closely to the cambelt and tensioners as it pumps the coolant around the engine. Replacing the water pump at the same time as the tensioners and cambelt reduces the risk of the pump leaking and causing contamination within the engine. If the waterpump is left leaking it can seize which will result in the engine overheating and causing damage to engine components which can be costly.
