    Default 206gti timing belt replacement

    I'm just finishing fitting a new timing belt to a 206GTI and it's been an absolute bugger of a job - nothing is easily accessible. Is it easier overall to drop the engine out of the car to do this? I don't know how long it takes to drop the engine, but once everything is easily accessible, changing the belt is a breeze. Would appreciate feedback from any 206GTI owners.

    Seem to recall that it wasn't a drop, but a lift ... and I'm pretty sure it wasn't ever done in-situ, for the very reasons I'm guessing you've discovered.

    ALL timing belts on Peugeot are done with the engine in car. Remove top engine mount bracket and that will give you the required room

    to add to this - water pump and lower half accessible via the wheel arch and the top half from above. You can lower and raise the engine a bit in situ with the top mount removed.

    Zero need to contemplate pulling the whole engine out
