View Full Version : timing belt help

Hey, I did the timing belt on my 98.5 AEB engine a little while ago. Now I gotta do the timing belt on my brother's 2001.5 1.8 and I was wondering how it compares to mine. Is it harder or pretty straight forward. I used the timing belt guide on audiword but it's for the AEB engine. The only thing I'm concerned about is the water pump and thermostat. Is there a guide for the 2001? Thanks!

its pretty much the same, I think the thermostat is a lil different though

There's 1 less belt on the AWM since the waterpump is run off the timing belt itself.

Removing the water pump is a little different as well since it mounts straight to the block.
Otherwise the process is all pretty similar.

We've got the kits in stock, check out our site!

doing the Tbelt on a 2001 is actually a little easier.
