TDC Pointer Missing

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

Trying to do the timing belt this weekend. I've done several before on other cars but this one seems to take the cake for difficulty.

 

Anyhow, I've got an issue trying to get everything lined up. The TDC pointer in the bell housing is missing. Does anyone have any idea where I can get another? Can't see them on SJS' website.

 

Cheers

I always use the marks on the crank pulley and front seal cover, you shouldn't need to use the flywheel pointer..

Have you tried Harry Maartens (DS Vitesse on here I think)

He seems to be expert on all things Citroen gearbox related

Ahhh! Posting on iPhone and the avatar pics are tiny

As its a later car - perhaps the lotus factory or a Renault dealer/specialist?

I don't believe the later cars even had a pointer. I've never seen as S4 or later with one but the hole is there. You could always make one if you feel the need, it's a typical M6 thread

Okay, that's re-assuring then. I'll just use the crank pulley markers.
