A bunch of tools change a timing belt!

This is more of a how-to than anything else. So how do you change a timing belt and water pump on a G40?

Well you can do what Scott (Buster.g40) did and hire in four Polo experts complete and utter tools to do it for you.

So you have myself as the camera man

Andy (Polo6n1600i)

Ross (13kpologt)

and Scott (dougstar21)

So you start off by having Ross under the car, Scott looking on in horror and Andy reassuring him that everything will be OK. Meanwhile the other Scott (not seen in this picture) is speaking to his phone in a posh accent Googling "how to change a G40 timing belt for dummies".

Before long the big guns need to get taken out in the form of a 24" adjustable spanner.

As you can see Scott (Buster.g40) is delighted and knows his car is in safe hands....

The other Scott returns from his Googling now fully informed on the task in hand, so proceeds under the car to take over. Ross meanwhile lends him a helping hand!

Then somehow the timing belt is changed and everyone is completely shocked happy.

There is always one stubborn bolt though so the big guns had to come out again.

After this we thought we had better give the big guns a rest, they had done well today.

And it is as easy as that.....
