What do Timing Belt Replacement services include?

Replacing a timing belt is commonly not recommended for a DIY job. It requires extensive technical skills, the right tools, and parts, and could also take several hours to complete. Fortunately, you can always hire a mechanic from Airtasker, so you won't have to drive to the repair shop and wait for ages to get the job done! Here's what to expect:

Purchase of New Timing Belt

The new timing belt must be compatible with your car's model and engine. When purchasing, refer to your manufacturer's manual or compare it to your old one. If you're unsure, you can have your Tasker bring a suitable timing belt for your vehicle. They know the best brands that guarantee long-lasting durability and resiliency at the best price.

Disconnect and remove necessary parts

Before starting, the negative battery terminal must be disconnected and secured away from its battery post. Some necessary parts will also be removed such as the serpentine belt, hoses, cooling fan, alternator, and valve cover assembly to gain direct access to the old timing belt. Once done, it will expose the old timing belt, as well as the camshaft and crankshaft.

Timing masks

Your Tasker must then locate the timing marks on the camshaft and crankshaft to ensure proper alignment. This step will come in handy later on during the reinstallation process. Any misalignments should be addressed immediately before placing a new belt to avoid causing further issues in the long run.

Removing the timing belt

The bolts and screws that are holding the timing belt cover will be undone to release the tension and let the belt slip off the crankshaft sprocket. The crankshaft pulley will be then detached while keeping the crankshaft sprocket intact. Once settled, your Tasker will finally remove the timing belt from the vehicle.

Installing the timing belt

The camshaft sprocket must be aligned with the marks on the cylinder head. After then, the new timing belt will be reassembled and positioned around the crankshaft sprocket. A tensioner tool will help apply pressure on the belt to prevent a replacement that is too tight or too loose.


After installing, your Tasker will reinstall all previously removed parts. Feel free to go on a test drive to make sure that everything is working as it should be. If there are no problems, it means the replacement was a success!
