Mmmm ... so who's right I wonder!
The camshafts are driven by a maintenance-free toothed belt. It is tensioned using an automatic tensioning roller,which uses contact shoulders at the same time to ensure the toothed belt is guided correctly.A idler roller on the tensioning side and tri-oval camshaft gears ensure the toothed belt runs smoothly.shakotanVIP said:The 3 cylinder up! engine doesn't have a cambelt, it has a timing chain.
