Timing Belt Service & Replacement

Timing Belt Replacement

Euro Clutch & Gearbox Centre offers the best timing belt repair and replacement service in Dublin. Whatever the make and model of your vehicle, our mechanics guarantee a reliable and quality service every time. The timing belt is a rubber belt that connects the top part of your engine with the bottom part of the engine. The function of a timing belt is to keep both halves of the engine running in time.

 

The timing belt is subjected to extreme wear and tear that can cause it to break or snap and, as such, requires proper maintenance and even replacing after a number of years or kilometres. In order for your engine to be in good working order, it is essential that your timing belt is in good working order. A broken or damaged timing belt means that your engine will not run properly and can even lead to major engine damage if not repaired immediately.

If your car won't start, the vehicle shakes or vibrates, or you hear a rocking or squeaking noise coming from the engine, chances are your timing belt has snapped or is due a replacement. We recommend replacing the timing belt every 4-5 years or every 60,000 - 70,000 kilometres, whichever comes first. At Euro Clutch, we offer excellent value on timing belt replacement services. Our expert mechanics have over 25 years of experience and provide a fast fix service so you and your car can get back on the road as quickly as possible.
