Cam Belt Replacement

What is a Cam Belt?

A cambelt is often ribbed and is placed on the car engine to keep the camshaft and crankshaft in sync as they should. For correct timing, the belt is placed in a very specific arrangement along one side of your engine. The Cambelt is designed to keep the bottom half of the engine in sync with the top half. It is an essential item.

When to replace your cambelt

For some vehicles, this can vary between 60,000 km and 180,000 km. Cambelts should be replaced after 90,000 km. The timing belt holds all the valves and pistons in your car together and also keeps them apart in a very careful way.

Kind Words From Our Customers

" I am a Real Estate Agent and my car is my lifeline in my business so it is absolutely essential that it is in a good state of repair at all times.
I have no idea what I would have done without German Auto over the last year or two.  They have been outstanding to say the very least. 
It first started with windscreen wipers that broke during a heavy rain storm and I phoned German Auto on a Friday afternoon after 5pm. 
They came to my house and fixed the problem immediately.  Recently flat… flat… battery on a Monday morning and of course a busy
Monday schedule to boot !  Well in no time at all, a brand new battery was brought to the house and car up and running once again. 
Once again on yet a Monday morning, there was a dreadful noise coming from the engine. The guys from German Auto asked me to bring the car in to
 the workshop where I was brilliantly assisted by Clement and Martin.  Fast and furious service done in the friendliest and most efficient manner. 
I cannot recommend them highly enough. "
