- Timing belt
- Tensioning pulleys, idlers or guide pulleys
- Consumables such as screws, nuts or springs
- Belt change sticker
Timing belts must not be creased since this will cause the glass-fiber tension members to break inside the belt. The belt’s load-carrying capacity is then no longer assured and it can tear. Consequence: Engine failure.
Belt drive components are subject to aging and wear. They therefore have to be regularly checked and replaced. The checking and replacement intervals are always specified by the vehicle manufacturer and must be complied with.
- Store in a dry, dust-free and cool place (ideally 15-25°C)
- Avoid direct sunlight
- Avoid contact with all liquids (oil, water etc.)
- Maximum storage period: 5 years from date of production (see packaging)
- Leave timing belt and components in their original packaging until ready for use
- Continental offers a wide range of special tools for fitting
- If the water pump is also driven by the timing belt, this should be replaced, too. Continental offers complete kits plus water pump for this purpose.
