V6 Cambelt change, any takers/recommendations?
« on: 04 October 2017, 22:52:43 »

Its that time, had her just about 4 years, anyone want to earn some money?
Or could recommend a garage?
I normally do my own work but find the cambelt very worrying...
Am in Southampton.

Thanks in advance.

It's not difficult to do yourself. You need the timing tool to get it in correctly and there is a DVD here that you can buy for instructions on how to do it.

Here is the DVD: http://shop.omegaowners.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=7

Here is one example of the timing tool:

Takes about three hours to do.

I am afraid with my injuries, I'm unable to work on car at all quickly, anymore - but, as long as I can take my time (over the course of say an afternoon) I will do it for you free of charge?

Sorry James, wasn't supposed to be a criticism  :-[ just a joke. I'm in the same boat to a degree and have to take my time a little - it's the bending over that gets me ;). Besides, we all know that fuse 19 bloke is like a robot! :D

This is a very kind offer :y
