2009 1.6hdi cambelt change
#1
Hi Guys 

As per title I'm going to change to cambelt, water pump and auxiliary belt over Easter break, just wondered where's the best place to source as GSF has a couple of options depending on number of teeth and width of belt?
Is there a complete kit including tensioners etc?

There are no bad kits really, we usually use the ina ones & these are available as full kits with the water pump included which ensures a decent quality pump.they are made by Schaeffler & are the best out there.
Some of the aftermarket pumps are poor quality in my experience & we have had some back leaking after a year or two.

Hi Mark 
Many thanks sounds like the way to go, have you got a link to a supplier?

I used a Dayco belt kit from ECP /CP4L last year. I've had no problems with Dayco for other uses and as it turns out the original that I took off was from Dayco and was still looking good after 130k. The INA parts are hard to beat though, so if it's within your budget INA is a good choice.
I spent ages trying to make sure I had the right kit, the way I did it was to cross reference the part number from the ECP web site with the Dayco catalogue, the same can be done with other manufacturers. GSF are less helpful in this respect as they won't tell you the manufacturer's part number directly but they will confirm if you ask them if the part number they're selling is the same as the one you have in mind.
A good way to check things is to look on catcar.info or service.citroen.com and use the PSA part number for the kit as a cross reference.

Thanks for your replies, I've decided to go with Citroen Parts rang my local dealer and complete kit including water pump £151.96 inc which I thought is pretty good. ?

Ok price for a Main Dealer I suppose - there is a mark up but you needed peace of mind so no issue.

An independent supplier will sell the same ( eg INA or Gates ) for £90

Think I paid £60+ vat today for an ina kit with water pump today. 
Remember Citroen don’t make these parts, they just box them up . Original Citroen belts are often Dayco , as mentioned.

Can you share a link to your supplier, or maybe sell this through to forum members?

£60 has to be a " trade " discounted price.

Okay make the guy feel bad for spending that much money!

£150 isnt that bad for a person not in the trade.

Lighty buys 100 of these kits in a year and his discount enables the guy to do a cambelt and water pump at a decent price to people who dont want to get their hands dirty, or would fcuk it up LOL.
