Since I need to swap out a dead motor mount, I'm thinking it would be a good time to change the timing/accessory belts and water pump.<p>Perusal of IPD shows that the belt/pulley kit is easy to get, and the water pump isn't a problem. Yay.<p>The tool to hold everything in place is a bit of a red herring since it says that it is not for 1999's. A call to th etechs at IPD reveals that due to hydraulics the tool may not hold everything right (I may have this wrong, paraphrasing). According to th etech, the tool can be used, but everything should be marked for TDC just in case it slips. <p>I have done timing belts on hondas before, and never had a lockup tool, always marking aeverythign so it can be put back in place. <p>For folks who have done this, is the tool worthwhile for a 1999? I like the extra insurance, but don't like pissing away cash.<p>Also, IPD has all th eparts to do what I want to except the coolant pump... am I missing something? I can find the pump elsewhere, and will if I have to, but it would be nice to get everythign sourced at once. I hate paying for shipping (and cross-border duties) twice.<p>Finally, every car I have done this on has been with the engine in the well, but tilted for access. Is this do-able on the Volvo, or is space too tight? Apart from pulling the fender-guard is there major surgery to get at the belt and cover?
