Unlike gearboxes and clutches where problems can be diagnosed, cambelts naturally wear and require replacement over a certain time frame or mileage interval. However, each car manufacturer will recommend different intervals for different models, and many drivers are unaware that this component requires maintenance, let alone the recommended replacement requirements for their vehicle.
Failure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines can lead to costly damage, so we recommend that you request an inspection of your cambelt upon your next car service. Finding out when your cambelt should be changed is easier than having your brakes checked but can result in far more expensive faults if it is overlooked.
It is important to try to diarise cambelt replacement and to not exceed the recommended replacement times. Parkhill Motors will be able to advise on the intervals at which your cambelt should be replaced and help you to budget for this. The cost of a cambelt replacement is incomparable to that of repair work when a cambelt fails.
