well all; joined up for the excellent ALH timing belt change 'how to article'... bit of a long winded affair actually loggin in here, but its done now...

Im used to spannering on old 1.6TD's n 1.9AAZ's 1Ys etc; this skoda octavia is 'the newest' ive done a belt on; right old 'ordeal' ... do I have to remove the camshaft belt pulley??

I 'assisted' in an ALH belt change years ago -with t'engine out, and i seem to remeber we somehow got the new belt on without removin the cam belt pulley...

Im sure 'page 2' will hold all the answers'!!...:thumbsup

They certainly are, as long as you lay off the giuness though it should go fine lol:D

I'll tell you what I noticed today, my car doesn't have the engine mount up the timing belt side, now that's progress. In other respects it pretty much like the ALH.
Good to hear it's all sorted man, is the octavia quite roomy in the engine bay?:)
