What is this and how is it fixed?

Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

The Camshaft de phaser unit is fitted to the inlet camshaft cog - timing belt cog... I will give you a pic below to help you ..

As this has been diagnosed as faulty it will need renewing as they can't be fixed.

While doing the job you need to fit a new timing belt kit as well - as you have to remove the old belt - and you can't refit it for fear of premature breakage.

If its not a job you can do yourself - I recommend you ring around garages locally and get several prices. I can't give you a price obviously as they differ so much around the country and even between garages...

Doing as above can save you a lot of money.... and you don't need to use a dealer , which will save you even more money...

Here is the pic I promised you :

I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you -


Kind Rgds, MIKE
