Peugeot 106 Timing Belt Replacement
Changing the timing belt on a 2002 Peugeot 106 1.1 independence with the TU1J5 fuel injected engine. This car has still less than 50,000 miles but i think that is close to the recommended interval, and there is also the fact that the timing belt itself is original and about 12 years old so it is a good time to change it.This is a fairly easy timing belt to change helped by the fact the car has a spring loaded tensioner so there is no need to guess what tension the belt should be at, and no worries that you can't find the mysterious SEEM measuring tool that is mentioned in the haynes manual. (If it had a manual tensioner you just have to tension the belt by hand which takes a bit of experience but the SEEM machine is not needed)In addition to that this engine is a simple single camshaft 8v engine, so less things to mark the position of.As for marking the position of the crank and camshaft before removing the belt, i chose just to mark these parts with a marker instead of removing the starter and locking the crankshaft via the flywheel, i did the locking the starter via flywheel in other videos and got plenty of comments asking if it was necessary, so here i just marked the positions instead. Initially i had the intention of using the Haynes manual and quoting the torque for the different nuts and bolts but after the water pump bolt broke i decided not to bother and just tighten the bolts up by feel. I think my draper 3/8 torque wrench was out of calibration which caused it to snap the bolt, so if you have a torque wrench which is correctly calibrated then take a look in the Haynes manual. Take care when changing the timing belt, its a job which must be down correctly if done wrong it has the potential to ruin the engine so if in any doubt take the car to a mechanic to change the belt instead.
