I have not started to do the job yet. I have replaced timing belts in the past using the information from a haynes manual as a guide and expert on whatever car i've had at the time. I have tried to find a manual for my peugoet expert van without sucess. Therefore would like some expert advice a guidance about replacing the belt along with any technical information required.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Thanks for your comprehensive answer.

looking at the specialist tools the item your refer to regarding the tension gauge is no longer available. I have looked for an alternative but the unit measurements are different. Is there a convertor for the units available?

Kind regards,

George.

Expert:  Mike replied 2 years ago.
Hello again -

That is a Peugeot tool - If you do a search on line for Timing belt tension tools- you will come up with different ones.

As a rule of thumb though - garages that dont have the tool, take a hold of the belt at the point indicated and twist it between finger and thumb - with reasonable pressure you should be able to just twist it through 90 degrees... and that is a good guide.

I hope that helps you further..

Best Rgds, MIKE.
