Get answers to the most commonly asked questions about cambelts.
The cambelt, also commonly known as a timing belt, is one of the most important parts of your engine. It’s a rubber belt that keeps the rotation of the crankshaft and camshaft synchronised. By doing this it makes sure your engine’s valves open and close correctly which makes sure your engine stays healthy despite the strain it’s put under when driving.
We recommend changing your cambelt once every four years for cars registered before September 2009, and every five years for cars registered after. If you reach the recommended mileage limit before 4 or 5 years, you may need to change the cambelt sooner. For more information, contact your local retailer.
