My 2002 Magentis V6 auto has done 80k miles , it had its belt changed as part of the 60k service but as that was 5 years ago under different ownership its time it was done so a couple of weeks ago i got on with it .



This isnt a "how to" guide just some pictures of the job in progress
With the aux belt and adjuster , the engine mount , P.A.S pump , bottom pulley , belt guards removed access to the belt and tensioner is excellent



This pic shows the bottom pulley there is a roll pin at aprox the 2 oclock position which lines up with a timing mark on the block

This pic shows the timing mark on the front bank



This shows the rear bank timing mark



With the new belt & tensioners fitted this is the view from underneath



I did this using only basic but good quality hand tools no special tools were needed and taking my time took just under 4 hours but an hour of that was trying to undo the crank pulley bolt , which would have been much easier if i had used an air gun .


Im in the UK so New belt kit from ebay £61.40 delivered
