Welcome to site :D

Take up Robin Hood's offer for the cambelt DVD, only £3 IIRC, and worth every penny. Clear, concise, informative.

You will need a locking kit (some members loans theirs out, but someone already has mine) and a 30mm offset spanner. Other than that, standard workshop tools, including Torx, mainly E10,E12,E14 and E20 to turn crank.

Welcome Coffee

Cambelt is a straight forward job and the DVD will help.

DO NOT be tempted to try without the use of a locking kit. Several of us have the kit available for free hire.

Job will take a few hours first time, but can be done in an hour with experince.

Don't be afraid to ask if you go wrong. We are here to help.

Hi all,

Having been offered sound advice for getting the V6 and water pump DVD i duly bought it from Robin Hood.  It arrived today I played it straight away I must say it is brilliant,  straight forward to understand & I will certainly be doing my cambelt and with confidence.  A must if you are unsure in tackling the job.

Well done to Robin Hood and his merry camara crew!

Wow, with that sort of praise you must be after something and I just did the video side.   ;)

Glad to see you plan on doing the work yourself, any specific problems/questions then there are plenty of people here to help – get posting…   :)
