Timing Belt Replacement

:unsure: I am thinking about replacing the timing belt on my 1.8 99 Avensis very soon, by myself. Although I have replaced timing belts on other makes I wish to know whether or not I am crazy in even thinking about this :help: I can assess this if anyone out there has an actual Toyota worksheet or a recent edition of the Autodata 'Timing Belts' publication.

Here's hoping.

1.8 7A-FE?

If so, the Haynes Manual for the Carina E will do the trick. I don't imagine it would be too difficult having looked at mine. Space is fairly restricted on that side of the engine, but not as much as when in the carina e. :thumbsup:

I deffo would not do it yourself but would recommend a good independent garage rather than toyota. Just had my 63,000 mile service done and cam belt (W reg Avensis 1.8). Toyota wanted £340 but got it all done for £220 at a really good independant garage.

It took all day because its fiddly and you have to take the air con out to get at it so would not try it yourself!!!

I know recent Avensis engines don't use timing belt. Can someone please tell me whether a 51 reg 2.0 petrol uses timing belt or chain?

Depends on the engine type. The latest Avensis (T25) uses the ZZ series of engines with chains (great for me :P ). Here is a link to the various engine types in another topic:

Engine Models

PS the engine type is normally in the specifications chapter of the Owner's manual

As I said - it's almost the same - the ZZ series are engines with VVT-i or VVTL-i (except for one perhaps, but it wasn't used in Avensis). There were some non-ZZ engines with VVT-i (like in Yaris), but also never in Avensis, so even if those engines had a timing belt instead of a chain the rule stays (BTW, Yaris has a chain, there also were engines with chains but without VVT-i like the K, T, R or M series, but still this does not concern Avensis, read the link you gave) ;)
