Question time belt scenic

Hi out there
My scenic 1.6 is five years old in June. So the time belt should be changed
Is this something which can be done without special tools?
I would like to try it myself, where do I have to take care for and what shouldn't I do? Hope my English doesn't sound to

greetings Willy

Hi and welcome to the forum. If you are confident with a set of spanners them I suppose you could have a go at doing the timing belt at home but it is not something I would recomend!!!!!!
The camshaft needs to be locked into position (using a special tool) and I thimk I'm right in saying that the bottom pulley does not sit on a keyway. You would have to be extremly careful about what you were doing.
Secondly if you get a garage to do the job you will get some sort of guarrantee. Not too sure what part of the world you are from so obviously rules like this vary from country to country.

I'm sure that lagdti will read this post and offer you more guidance but I'm sure he will agree, and to let a garage do it.

Kind regards Oilyrag

If it's a 16 valve engine,then it's best left to a garage who have the specific engine locking kit.

If it's an 8 valve,then as long as you are confident with a set of spanners and have some instructions/workshop manual,you should be O.K.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
