Re: Wheel Bearing and various front suspension bits

All wheel bearings done along with lower arms, anti roll bar bushes and track rod ends. Makes a big difference to the handling and steering. Just got the rear dampers and service the torsion bars. Already done the cam belt, water pump, idler and tensioner. Had to replace the coils (cheap set off eba...

Re: Cam belt change

Further to doing the cambelt. I made the holding tool with a bit of flat bar and my welder. If you buy a decent kit, such as Dayco, then the caps for the ends of the cams come as part of the kit. I used the little torque gun from Machine Mart which cost approx £28.00. No probs undoing and tightening...

What a nightmare. Water pump leaking, changed, New cambelt, tensioner and idler. I have never taken so long to do such a simple job. Never again on this car.
