    Default 307 HDi timing belt change questions.

    Hi all,
    I've been lurking around the forum for a while and have found some very useful info.

    My 2008 307 has 170,000 Km on the clock and it's time for a timing belt change.

    I've lined up the cam sprocket and put an 8mm bolt in to hold it in place (about 4 o clock) but the flywheel won't line up with the hole above the starter. (It's about 2 teeth on the flywheel out?)

    I'm presuming the belt is stretched but this seems a lot. (I've done a few belt changes over the years and never seen this much discrepancy on dis-assembly.)

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Someone will complain about my French, but it's all I have (Cit version) (a bit blurred, but I had to jpeg shrink them from Postscript)--

    Thanks for the reply Seasink,
    Unfortunately this looks like a different motor. My belt doesn't run around a fuel pump.
    All I have is Cam, idler, crank, water pump and tensioner.

    Sorry to have taken so long - I converted a set of the A series diesel in error.

    You can pick up all the gen, in French again, for the 2008 C4 which uses the same DW10BTED4 motor, at http://service.citroen.com/dtt/CDP/d...C4/2008_c4.zip. There's a pdf enclosed. Look up "distribution" for motor RHR from p179 on.


    PS https://translate.google.com.au/ can do a reasonable if odd translation.

    Thanks seasink,

    This is a big help, looks a lot more like what's in the car.
    Page 187 shows a different method to lock the crank, (as apposed to a pin through the hole.) It's freezing out in the shed so I'll wait till the morning before continuing, but more marking and counting teeth is in order.
    I think you've saved me from making a big mistake....

    Just to confirm, the letters RHR are in your VIN. Read up on the balancer/pulley.


    PS p187 (as printed) is a different motor, RHZ. p187 of the pdf is motor RHR.

    Probably too late now, but there are quick ways to get the text out of a large pdf file. In Linux, the command is:
    pdftotext -f <1st page> -l <last page> -layout source.pdf destination.txt (NB only one hyphen at -layout)

    You can get software for Windows as well, including Acrobat.

    There was a time when you could pipe text into translate.google.com, but there is now a fee for this service, so you'll probably have to paste it in chunks into their web page.

    Hi, not long done a belt change on 2007 2lt HDi. I fabricated a ring gear locking device to hold the c.shaft when undoing the c/shaft pulley bolt. Can send If you promise to send back. I am near Bendigo. Other than a tight squeeze around the engine it went ok. There were some hidden cable clamps on the timing belt cover which were hard to get at.

    Thanks for the offer Lockwwod, I ended up going out in the cold last night and made one up.

    Your right about the cable clips on the back of the top cover. A real pain..

    Jobs finished, it went back together easier than it came apart. And runs fine

    Thanks again to Seasink. Without the manual I would have put it back together with the crank lined up to the pin and had the timing one tooth out. That would have been rather embarrassing.
