2002 Volvo V70 Question: timing belt / water pump replacement



skerylow, Turbo, Santa Clarita, CA, April 08, 2009, 19:15

I bought a new water pump for my V70 wagon. Can you direct me to detailed instructions on how to remove the timing belt so I can change out the water pump? The timing belt was changed at 110,000 miles. The car now has 174,000 miles.

    If you are going to do this job, invest in a repair manual. It is inexpensive, $27.00 at alldatadiy.com, and the info is straight from Volvo. If you don't get the belt on correctly, you can damage the engine, costing $$$! You are going to have the timing belt partially off, so it is worth replacing at this time.
