When replacing a timing belt that drives the water pump, it is common practice to replace the water pump at the same time – First Line supplies a range of Timing Belt Kits containing belts, tensioners, idlers and water pumps, under the company’s First Line and Borg & Beck brands.
The range consists of more than 40 references, covering over 3,000 applications, including many popular manufacturers such as Citroën, Fiat, Ford, Mazda, Mercedes, Nissan, Seat, Renault, Volvo, Toyota and Vauxhall. In addition to the timing belt, the kits contain all the necessary parts required when changing a synchronous drive system. They are supplied, as standard, with the water pump, pulleys, tensioners and fixing components, where applicable, meaning technicians receive everything they need from one source.
Technical layout drawings aid the identification process, available in its online catalogue webcat.firstline.co.uk, where the full range can be looked up via application or cross reference. The kits are backed by a comprehensive two-year/24,000-mile warranty against manufacturing defects, if replaced in line with the manufacturers schedule.
