2nd cambelt change

So the Bravo has just been in for its second cambelt change. Its now just passed the 140,000 mile mark, with each change at around the 72k ish mark.

I asked the state of everything, they said tensioners were fine, water pump had a little bit of play but the cambelt itself wasn't in the best condition. He said there were deposits of rubber that were making the belt not run straight (if you know what I mean!). He said it wasnt about to snap or anything but was putting extra strain on it.

It also had an MOT which showed it needed a suspension arm (front) as the ball joint had play in it. Apart from the droplink thats the first suspension part changed, not bad for 140k miles!

Re: 2nd cambelt change

Not bad?

You mean outstanding.

Do you have many speed bumps where you live?

Not loads of speed bumps but there are some!

I dont want to tempt too much fate but the car has been brilliant.

Re: 2nd cambelt change

I used AlfaShop in Norwich to get mine done earlier in the year. Excellent service, 330 all in with gen parts.

Was that just belt, tensioner and water pump?

What engine?
