Checking the technical condition of timing drive parts

Check the camshaft and crankshaft sprocket, tensioner pulley and roller for wear, damage

Replace parts if necessary

Check the tensioner and pulley by gently turning them for noise. Replace parts if necessary.

If there is an oil leak from the bearing, replace the tensioner and roller if necessary.

Drive Belt

Check the belt for oil or dust build-up.

Replace the belt if necessary.

Dust should be wiped off with a dry cloth. Do not clean the belt with solvent.

Removing and installing the G6EA timing belt

Carefully check the belt when the engine is disassembled or the tensioner is replaced.

If the belt is visibly damaged, replace it.

G6EA engine timing belt removal and installation

Install the timing belt tensioner.

Do not install tensioner within 5 minutes.

Press on the rod weighing 150 - 200 N.

If the stem does not move, smoothly insert the setting pin.

If the stem moves, push it 2 - 3 times so that the length is 2.9 mm (from the place where the 2 holes of the stem and body were at the same level).

Check stiffness. If the stem moves, insert a pin, replace the auto-tensioner.
