    I'm changing the cambelt, ternsioner and water pump on a mates 2002 Clio 1.2 16v tomorrow due to the water pump leaking,

    Autodata says that a camshaft timing pin needed, is this timing pin needed or does the crank have a keyway where the toothed pulley for the cambelt slides onto the crank. i.e the pulley is not free floating on the crank

    Thanks

    sorted then. no problems there! I think a main dealers changed the belt and tensioner about 15k ago. I doubt they changed the water pump though, is it common for the pump to leak on them?

    I picked up a cambelt kit and water pump for £100 Russ 182, you'll probably be looking to pay around £170-190 inc the labour at an independent garage

    Cheers

    Ah right, this ones a strange one. On day it was leaking and using litres of water, then i looked at it and it was dry, topped it up and it was fine for 2 days, now it's leaking again!

    1.2 16v tensioner = 100x more complicated than it needs to be, you need someone to watch pointers underneath :worried:

    any ideas if certain size drill bit can be used as a timing pin for the flywheel or does only the genuine tool made for the job fit?

    I used a bolt for it the other day (M7 i think). it's not that critical, just makes assembly easier. As already said, the tensioner is the most complicated part of the job, but a mirror makes it doable on your own.

    thanks mate, saves me time messing about. i've got a mirror here that should make things easier with the lining up the pointer.

    8mm drill bit straight in the flywheel to lock the crank, tensioners are w**k!

    great stuff, is it ok to undo the main crank bolt against this or should the flywheel be held with a screw driver as autodata instructs!?

    i wouldn't use a drillbit to hold anything with any force, they're brittle

    You've undone the main crank pulley bolt against the drill bit?

    Thanks
