Reason for that is your inner crank pully that cambelt sits on is too small. I can't remember , I think 5 or 6 full turn of the crank pully is equal to 1 full tun of the cam pully. If you keep turning it you will see that they line up.

Re: clio cambelt?

The cam pulley is twice the diameter of the crank pulley so if you divide the number of teeth on the timing belt by the number on the crank pulley theoretically the result should be the number of engine revolutuions required for every thing to come back into line.

Re: clio cambelt?

Thanks for that. The reason I was baffled was because when I took the top plastic cover off the old cam belt was exactly lined up with the marks on the belt corresponding to the yellow dots on the camshaft pulley and the fuel pump pulley. A one in six chance then, that's what got me going!

Re: clio cambelt?

It's 72,000 or 5 years which ever come first not worth putting it off if it snaps it will be very expensive

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?
