    Default 308 DW10BTED4 FAP Timing belt Change

    G'day, So I jumped in and started the timing belt change. All good so far except for the crankshaft belt drive cog seems to have a much larger keyway width than the width of the key. Is this normal for this Engine? I have worked on cars for yonks and I have never seen such a disparity between a keyway and a key before.

    Totally normal when you tension the belt it will centralise to the correct position Iíve been a psa tech for over 20 years

    OK, cheers. I have been working on cars and aircraft for going on 40 years and I have never come across a keyway/key clearance this big before. Then again, this is my first European car.

    Yeah they do it to help get correct tension on the belt
