    Icon5 VTS Timing Kit Current Pricing

    Hello All,

    Advertisement


    About to do the timing belt on a 2003 xsara vts for the first time. Cheapest local kit I trust is about $225 from Brisbane Euro Serve. Does anyone know of any cheaper kits I can obtain in Australia?

    Water pump is setting me back about $100 from SCA. Lastly, I'm on the lookout for a new crankshaft pulley in case this one has slipped and put the timing off. I found some from the UK clocking in at about ~100 pounds + shipping. Anyone know whether an Australian company stocks VTS crankshaft pulleys? The EAI catalogue does not list them.

    Cheers

    That's the GTi6 engine?

    I suggest calling EAI to ask about stock, then see if they'll offer you an "all in" price, if paid on the spot.

    Yep it's the gti 6 engine (xu10j4rs). Thankyou for your advice. I'll give them a call on Monday.

    DON'T WIND THE MOTOR BACKWARDS! Not even a little bit!

    Observe that rule and you'll be sorted.

    You'd be OK, it's the C5 diesel that won't be happy.

    In your case, the other luxury is a set of timing pins, you can (should) also use the new damper pulley rather than the old one to time the motor up before stripping the old belt off.
