Volvo S70: working on 2012 Volvo s70 t5. Timing belt

Customer Question

Hello working on 2012 Volvo s70 t5. Timing belt cam seals. They are leaking really bad. Well I put every mark in time before removing belt. The problem is the cams came of and spin freely in order to replace cam seals. I have tool for older Volvo cars to hold back side. New models don't have the same slot. How do you set the cams to vet pulley with no slot.

My name is ***** ***** on this link for the procedure.2.4 timing belt
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I know how to time the car. I need to know how to time the cam pullies to cam itself. Older models have tool for the back of cams which I have . 2012 Volvo s70 t5 turbo doese not have the groove on the rear of cams. Wondering how to set up cam to vvt pully. I'm close cause it will start but no throttle response.
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 7 months ago.
Thanks for the update George. I have the timing tools as well that line up with the horizontal grooves to hold the cams. there is no bolt holes center of the cams on any notches?
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 7 months ago.
Lock the cams in place and make sure the crank shaft marks are correct. Line up the intake cam to the timing cover, then rotate the CVVT hub clockwise to see where your current timing marks align. This will tell you how far forward/back you need to adjust the hub. Remove the center bolt and rotate the hub as necessary. You'll probably have to do this a few times, but you'll get there. Don't worry about the three bolts that secure the hub to the gear, not necessary to remove those. Snug down the bolt and rotate the hub to see where the marks land, if they are off, back it off and try again. When you get the timing marks to match the cover when the hub is rotated fully clockwise, go ahead and make your final torque on the center bolt. Install the cap, and proceed to install the timing belt, of course making sure to rotate the hub to it's end position when installing the belt. All of the marks should be lined up at that point.

So you have done one like this that don't have the alighnment marks for that special tool? Just weird that the new models don't . Like I said I replaced cam seals thinking the tool would work. Cam to vvt relation is the issue. Both intake and exhaust cam gear just have a torx bolt in the center. It doese not have 3 bolts on cam gear just the vvt gear for adjustment. The cam gears just spin if loose so I lost cam to gear relation . hard to see were cam should be . Hard to tell were cam should be to set timing.

Hi George, Everything I am pulling up still shows to lock the cams with the holding tool and i know what you are referring to but like you I have not run into this one unfortunately but nothing in my research shows the procedure to be any different. Are your pulleys marked on the front? It is odd that they eliminated the notches at the rear of the cam. You do have the threaded bolt holes there still correct? When you installed the belt/ lined your marks did the VVT gear ***** *****ne up when rotated and held in place or was it off a tooth?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I put all marks in place when doing belt so I know I'm close. I did nothing to vvt pully do I still have to turn it? It's really odd so no you have not done a 2012. Yea ther is not much info on this model. Yea it's got two vvt cam and exhaust. Do I have to set them up if I did not loser them.? I'll be messing with it at work. Wish me luck. If you get any info email me if you can find info on set up you will be teen care of thanks.
