The timing belt is a must-do at the time and/or mileage interval. It's not worth the risk and known to have failures.2007 with 67,000 not hard miles. I will not get to the suggested mileage for a long time so is 10 years a good time to change? I know it has been covered and I read the answer somewhere but could not find using search. Thanks in advance.
I too bought this kit. Car is 06 with 106k so right around time to change it sounds. Looked at the sticky on here on how to change. Seems pretty straight forward, althought I've never done a belt change.Taking advantage of their Black Friday sale, I ordered a timing belt kit from IPD. My '05 V70R is just shy of the 112,500 service interval, but I don't take any chances on a 10 year old car.
I did the timing belt and water pump swap without removing the crank pulley. I would do it that way again.I'd get the kit with the water pump and change it. My wasn't leaking but there was almost neglible play in the water pump shaft, but when I compared it to 0 play in the new shaft I was glad I did it. It's not hard, a Harbor Frieght electric impact made short work of that Crank Pulley bolt and the rest was cake. I did almost strip one of the 4 10mm bolts on the crank but I quickly switched to a 6 point 10mm socket and all was well. So I would use all 6 point sockets and you shouldn't have any issues.
It's been a while. I took my crank pulley off because I had access to shop air and my air tools. But I'm pretty sure you can see the mark with the pulley on might need a mirror and light though.How do you ensure the teeth are lined up on the crank pulley? I can mark the cam shafts easy on the belt but can you see the marks on the crank/get in there to make one?

Yep. You can see index mark on the crank pulley from the top... Line it up take off the belt and bingo.It's been a while. I took my crank pulley off because I had access to shop air and my air tools. But I'm pretty sure you can see the mark with the pulley on might need a mirror and light though.
