The timing belt, although hidden, plays a crucial part within your vehicles engine. Merlin recommend the timing belt on your vehicle is replaced at the correct intervals as set by the Manufacturer.
What is the timing belt?
The timing belt is the belt that controls the camshafts in your vehicles engine, opening and closing valves at just the right time, therefore allowing the engine to run smoothly.
What if the timing belt isn’t replaced?
If the timing belt isn’t replaced during the recommended interval it could fail. If the timing belt fails, valves will be held open when they shouldn’t be, and will be struck by the pistons. This will cause major damage to your vehicles engine.
To find out the replacement interval for your car please check in the vehicle service/handbook or ask a member of Merlin to find out for you.
