Your timing belt (or cambelt) synchronises the movement of the pistons and valves inside your vehicle's engine. If it breaks or snaps, the engine could be severely damaged.
Whilst all vehicles are different, every manufacturer will recommend an optimum age or mileage at which you should have a timing belt change; most will advise between 70,000 - 100,000 miles. It’s important to follow this recommendation to keep your car or van safe on the road, as it can be very difficult to tell when a timing belt replacement is due.
Some vehicles also require additional items to be replaced at the same time, such as the water pump. At Eurorepar, our qualified specialists will take care of all of this for you.

It’s not worth the risk of waiting to replace your timing belt. It can appear to be in good condition but break without warning. It’s best to replace it in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Very hot or very cold climates, or large variations in temperatures can cause premature wear of the timing belt.
On certain engines, the synchronisation of the pistons and valves are not controlled by a belt. Instead they use a chain, which in theory shouldn’t need replacing during the car’s lifetime.
