When replacing the toothed belt kit, the specifications on the product instruction leaflet and the installation instructions of the vehicle manufacturer must be noted. The required special tools should also be used for correct assembly.
During replacement of the toothed belt, pay attention to the functional capability and the state of any alternator freewheel clutch (Figure 5, item A) and torsional vibration damper (Figure 6) installed. Furthermore, the components of the power take-off should also be checked (flat belt with tensioner pulleys and rollers, tensioning element). If, during the replacement of the coolant pump, it becomes evident that the cooling system is contaminated, it should be flushed. The HELLA cooling system cleaner is suitable for this, for example. The cooling system should only be filled with a coolant which meets the specifications of the vehicle manufacturer. The system should be filled and bled in accordance with the specifications of the vehicle manufacturer.
Information on the use, specifications and change intervals of coolant can be found in the corresponding technical information on coolant.
Information on the correct installation of coolant pumps can also be found in the applicable technical information.
Once the work is complete attach the service sticker, which documents the replacement of the belt, in a visible place in the engine compartment and also document the toothed belt replacement in the vehicle service book.
