Technical Info/Installation Tips

Installation tip for timing belt kit CT 957 K1 – WP4: e.g. Audi / VW / Skoda / Seat 1.4 /1.6 16V

Fault:
The tensioning pulley fastening screw has snapped off..

Cause of fault:
Because too low a tension was set and/or the contact surface with the engine was not correct, the pulley loosened slightly during operation, resulting in the screw being subjected to flexing stresses and then shearing.

Fault correction:
When installing the tensioning pulley, ensure that the contact surfaces are correctly seated. Furthermore, the tension pointer position must be checked after turning the engine over several times. (Fig. 3)
