Is it much of a job to replace the timing belt on a 2.0 HDI?
I've heard that you need a special tool to set the tension of the belt by the frequency of the sound made when you give the belt a twang!
Can it be done without buying a locking pin set?

Fiddly, but not difficult if you're handy with the spanners.

Yes, you really need a proper belt tensioner tool.

You risk breaking something, or cocking the job up without the locking kit.

Don't forget the idler pulley and tensioner need replacing as well. The bottom pulley is also scheduled for replacement at timing belt time.

Any idea how much the tensioning tools costs?
I had planned on doing the idler & tensioner but was'nt aware that the pulley needed replacing to
I will look at the cost of the locking pin set as I have two belts to replace as the wifes Citroen Picaso is due & has the same 2.0 HDI under the bonnet

Dunno chum. Google should find a tension guage/tool.

while I'll tackle anything, there are some jobs I always pay some bugger to do now I'm getting old, like exhausts, brake bleeding, belts etc. If nothing else with belts, if it goes tyts up it's the dealers problem.
