Timing Belt: Procedures

 Toothed Belt, Checking condition

Open fasteners of upper toothed belt cover and remove cover.

Check condition of toothed belt for:

Cracks, cross-sectional breaks
Separation (cover layer, belt cords)
Wear-through on cover layer
Fraying of cord strands
Surface cracks (plastic shroud)
Traces of oil and grease

Note:

It is essential to replace toothed belt if malfunctions are found. This will avoid possible break-downs or operating problems. Replacing the
belt is a repair procedure.

While checking the condition, take notice of the following defects:

A - Tears (cover side)
B - Lateral movement
C - Fraying
D - Tears (in teeth)
