Anyone Here Done A Timing Belt Change On An Ls430?


Recommended Posts

I'm on 85k @ 9 years old now.

I believe it's due at 100k / x years? Whats the X ?

ADL kit is £80 so will use that and waterpump will go for BGA as I always have good experiences.

Had a look over the manual and some guides and it all looks like standard stuff to me? Also looks like theres plenty of room to get air gun down to the crank pulley so can't see any real issues..

Is there anything that I am likely missing or have missed that's leading me to believe it's just a straightforward typical timing belt job?

Cant tell you how easy the job is, under Roman numerals X = 10. Good luck with the Cam belt change Mike

I never received any service history with mine even after trying to contact the previous owner in Japan so at 12 years old and at 60,000 miles I thought I'd better do something about it even though the engine is non interference,

I looked at DIYing and although I was probably capable my mind was made up when my local MOT garage quoted me £100.00 labour to do the job if I bought the parts.

No brainer, I took the car to them at 8.00am as arranged and collected it at 5.30pm the NEXT day! I don't think they had quoted me correctly from Autodata (4 hours) and if it took a professional mechanic 2 days to do one it really says it all.

It's not so much the belt itself,it's actually removing all the stuff just to get to it but if you have reasonable mechanical skills and decent tools it is feasible but to me a little daunting.

Hi Sam

I have had my done at a Leus dealer and an independent. I will try and find the invoice however I remember it is just under 3 hours labour for the job plus 10 mins extra for the water pump. The rad needs to come out when you do the job so if your car has a lot of miles (like mine 2004K) that may result in a new Rad being needed (like mine) because of corroded fittings. Also it took forever to get the air locks out of the colling system.

Good luck.

Bren
