1. Fit the camshaft belt as marked on the belt and in the correct direction of rotation. Use Adjustment tools, cam sprockets and timing beltKM-800-30 to hold the belt in place. Fit the lower tensioning pulley loosely. Make sure the washer is in place. Lightly adjust the tensioning pulley by hand so that the belt does not jump. Adjust anticlockwise. Make sure the markings on the camshaft belt and the corresponding markings on the camshaft sprockets and crankshaft are aligned. Remove the tools,

KM-800-30.

Tightening torque: 40 Nm (30 lbf ft)

Remove the belt-tension meter and piece of the toothed belt.

Fit locking tool KM-800-10, position a piece of camshaft belt and fitBelt tension meter part no. 83 93 985 to measure the belt tension.

Tighten the centre bolts of the adjuster rollers lightly. Adjust the lower adjuster roller anticlockwise until a tension of 275-300 Nm is obtained. Use tool 83 94 983. Tighten the adjuster roller's bolt. Use tool 83 94 983 as a counterstay. Check the belt tension again and adjust as necessary.

Important

Adjustment of belt tension is only a preparatory measure and must not be used as a check when

Remove KM-800-20 and the other locking tools.

3. Rotate the engine two revolutions in the direction of rotation until just before the zero mark and fit locking tool KM-800-10 on the crankshaft. Carefully rotate the crankshaft in the direction of rotation of the engine until the arm is lying against the coolant pump and tighten it. Fit tool KM-800-20 and ensure the markings on the camshaft sprocket are opposite the markings on the tool and that the edge of the belt is aligned with the edge of the sprocket.

Important

Check that marking A is about 2 mm above
