take the weight of the engine, you do NOT need to jack up the car..it can remain on it's wheels.
however for access / better pics I've removed the RHS front wheel, this may be the better option.

Re: Panda 8 Valve cambelt change

tools used; 10 and 13 mm socket, or spanner -10 mm socket is better for belt casing
15 mm Socket / Spanner for engine mounts
3/8 flexy ratchet, awkward access to wind the engine mount bolts
pliers to pre-load the belt tensioner

Thanks man. Looks easier than expected, and I expected pretty easy I'm surprised that the cam doesn't need to be locked - bonus!
