The WIS has the procedure for working with the cam timing, the belt, tools, torque settings and so on. I am not sure if it has a section on just the tensioner specifically.gthomp0805 said:...I am really looking for what's involved with replacing the tensioner. Tools, settings for timing, expected time to do the job, etc. Guess I will keep digging.
If you want specifics as to how to do this procedure you can ask me directly as I've gone ahead and completed my timing belt change myself, WITHOUT the use of the special tools required, however, this is not a job for a novice or inexperienced home mechanic, this is a very advanced procedure to complete and requires alot of skill, eyes (to line up the cam markings correctly) and patience. I completed the job in about 6 hours, and I had to request the help of two other people to hold the cams in place with the rachets since I didn't use the special tools that are normally required to do this job.gthomp0805 said:I found that as well after sending the intial post. Although it is a good picture and gives me an idea, I am really looking for what's involved with replacing the tensioner. Tools, settings for timing, expected time to do the job, etc. Guess I will keep digging.
