Timing belt kit brands.
#1
Hi all,

I am about to change the timing belt of my peugeot partner. (1.6 hdi 90hp).

The price of the kit (belt, pulleys, waterpump) from peugeot is about 250 euro. But online shops offer the kit too from brands like Gates/Contitech/...

The prices are 60% lower then the OEM kit! Are these kits good? Does anyone know with brand is used by peugeot/citroen ?

I am sure citroen does not produce the kits itself but rebrand them after buying them from a brand that makes them.

But wich manufacturor is used by citroen?

I hope my english is understandable...

Thanks.

Michel from Belgium.

The popular concensus from other forums like Porsche & Audi etc.
seems to suggest Gates then Contitech (part of Continental Tyres)
then Dayco.
Avoid QH (Quinton Hazell).
Gates and Dayco both manufacture original belts for many cars.

Inside some Klarius-QH boxes I have found Dayco manufactured pulleys.

128 euro is about 106 pound so for a kit with rollers, belt and water pump it is cheap Big Grin

Do you have the timing tools to stop crankshaft and camshaft rotation, or can you borrow them?

Hi addo,

You can use bolts or drill bits to lock them in place. I beleive it is 8mm and 4mm u have to use.
I also mark the correct allignement with a paint parker to be 100% sure it is correct Wink

U can actually change all timing belts only with a paint marker.

The only thing that i expect to be difficult is flushing the cooling system on this engine. The thermostat is not removable like in older cars because it is 1 with the housing. So i might only be able to flush the radiator...

I would hazard a guess your not a mechanic, changing belts with a paint marker is ok, except for floating crank models like the clio 182 etc and the odd Peugeot hdi engine with floating crank pulley, trying to do one of these with a paint marker will lead to a world of hurt! word from the wise Wink

as for the cooling system, removing one of the heater matrix pipes also will help you flush the system more completely Wink
