The cambelt, also known as the timing belt, is one of the most crucial bits of kit in the engine. It’s basically a rubber belt with teeth on it which synchronises the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft. It regulates the way your engine works.
Like most bits of kit, it will eventually wear out. If it cracks, tears or snaps, it can cause a whole heap of expensive engine damage. With older cars this usually means they won’t be worth repairing.

When should I change my cambelt?
Most manufacturers recommend a cambelt change from every 60,000 miles to every 105,000 miles. Our timing belt check will help if you’re unsure whether it’s time for a replacement.
How do you know there is something wrong with the cambelt?
When there is a grinding or squeaking noise coming from the engine compartment (specifically from the engine itself).
When the car will not start (this happens if the belt has broken).
What happens if I don't get a cambelt replacement?
The cam belt (or timing belt) is a very important component that regulates the operation of your car engine. If it breaks, it can cause expensive damage to the engine.
