Mazda Bongo Cam/Timing Belt (Diesel).
2.5 Turbo Diesel – (WL-T) – Chassis (SGL3, SGL3F, SGL5, SGL5F, SGLW).
The timing belt is a part of your car’s internal combustion engine. It loops around the end of various shafts in the car to transfer rotational energy moving in one direction to eventually turn the wheels.
The timing belt is the key link between the camshaft and the crankshaft. The crankshaft is responsible for changing the vertical energy generated by the movement of the pistons into rotational energy to drive the wheels. The camshaft is responsible for opening and closing valves to allow air into and out of your car’s engine. If the timing belt were not there, or if it were to break suddenly, the pistons and the valves would collide which could cause a lot of internal damage to your vehicle. This is why it is extremely important to monitor the condition of your car’s timing belt and to make sure that you change it before it breaks.
The pulley then ensures that the belt moves as it should, while the tensioner arm, found on the bottom of the tensioner, is designed to counter the spring, and so allow the timing belt itself to be removed or adjusted.
This belt is also included it the Cam Belt Service Kit along with the Tensioner and Spring.
