Line 1: Line 1:
 +It's not actually possible to "​check"​ a timing belt as such.
 +Generally they'​re replaced every 60-100k miles, unless they'​re perished or cracked or obviously worn then there are no checks to check the condition.
 +To check cambelt/​timing belt tension, remove the timing belt covers ( as shown in the Wiki about changing a cambelt ). 
 +You should be able to grab the cambelt and you should be able to rotate it 90°. Any major amount more and it's too slack, if you can't quite make 90° then it may be too tight.
 +Signs of a cambelt being too tight are a whining noise that will increase with engine speed.
