Espace 2.2 DCi Cam Belt Change
Hi, this is my first post. I reckon my Cam belt is due for renewal since the milage is now 125k and the first change was done at 65k. I have just downloaded the Dialogys manual for £10 which contains lots of fascinatinng stuff but nothing on changing Cam belts. (unless I'm not driving it properly). This either means the job is trivial! or it is an engine out job and will cost more than the vehicle (I wouldn't call the Espace a car) is worth. Being used to Haynes manuals, which they don't do for this model. I don't know where to start. I can't even see the cam cover fasteners!. From what I have read on this fascinating forum, I can buy a kit for around £70 and am best to replace the water pump, run off the cam belt, at the same time. I am fairly competent with a spanner and have changed engines in my youth. Most recently I have changed the clutch hydrylics on the Espace and a broken front spring. I have also fitted a towbar and wired into the towbar auxilliary connector but I will post a different thread on that one.
