Buy a Chiltons, its a book that tells how to repair everythin, and it will give you the needed tourque specks and everything.


Good luck

Wait, he used the word "petrol" rather than "gas". So he's in Europe - in which case, he'll want the Haynes manual instead (I don't know if Chilton sells across the pond).

However, the Haynes book should tell you what you need to know. Replacing the timing belt is a fairly easy matter of lining up the timing marks on the cams and crank to a certain place, then torquing everything down to the proper level so the belt can move freely. Generally, this is easier if the engine's out of the car, but it can be done from the engine bay (though I guarantee it'll be a bit frustrating).

Duncan :D - good luck!
