Awesome diy video! I need to do my t-belt this spring and I'll be referencing this thread for sure, I know it will be a great help.

One question though- on part 3 around 11:20 into it when the belt goes on the driver's side intake cam, it looks like the line on the belt/cam gear is off a little to the right from the notch mark on the head even though the double lines on both cam gears line up. Shouldn't the belt and cam gear mark line up with the notch too? Maybe it's the pov of the camera that makes it look a bit off...

But I totally appreciate all the time and effort that went into making the video and I'm sure it will help a lot of people- myself included- thanks again!!

I noticed that during editing.. I assure you it wasn't off, it was merely the angle. I tried highlighting the inner timing cover notches with a white paint marker to help see it, but even then it's hard to tell. The same story with the lower passenger cam gear, it looks off in the video as well

That's kinda what I figured, but it had me a little confused for a minute there- thanks for the response. A+ job man.

Super video!!

Suggestion: I think it would be helpful to clarify torque values... you say "pounds" a lot, but it's unclear whether you mean in-lb or ft-lb.

Ok. I have the raw video project saved, so I can go back and correct these little things. Everything is in ft-lbs...I should have just done Newton Meters like I originally planned

I also thought I left out plugging in the radiator fan harnesses so I added it right after the lower coolant hose...then I come to find out I had it in there the first time...doh!


Thanks for the suggestion

You sir are a bad ass. Well done. I'm, what, 85k from doing a timing belt job, and I'm already excited . The person holding the camera had a very steady hand....did you narrate and record, or overlay the audio post recording?

Great job on the video, very professional, just about anyone can change their own timing belt now.

Meaty was narrating the whole time...and he was holding the camera most of the time too, sometimes using a tripod. There's maybe one shaky part, and that was me holding the camera
I was the one wrenching most of the time (at the instruction of Meaty)...but he did a fair share of wrenching too.

There is one section where I added audio because I thought I left out the radiator fan harnesses when I actually didn't. Gonna fix that here sometime. Other than that, it was all done freestyle off the top of the head with the exception of my Nasioc guide I referenced to for the torque specs.

Thanks, I tried to make sure I illustrated each step so there wouldn't be anyone out there that got halfway into their belt change and be stuck.

You should also note that you have never done a timing belt before.. you did great

Have you ever run into the far and few between problem on the 02's where the idler bolt is "too short" (at least on the IIR component kit) to thread back into the block? About to do my belt/idlers for my 02 and was seeing if there was any insight on that.

Which idler? If it's the small blue one I have ran into situations where the bolt is too long and times where it was too short. I'm not familiar with the kit you mentioned.

Small idler. I have only seen two threads where it has been mentioned. Both involved the timing component kit from Import image racing. The main focus was that in 02 they used a single bearing little idler, and in the kit, the idler was double bearing. Hence the bolt being too short. Like i said, I've only come across two threads that really mention it.

Yep, double and single bearing ones are what make the depth different. I've pulled both types off of different WRX's and STI's and always use the single. The PCI kits also come with the single as well IIRC

How did you get around the "too small" issue. I mean, obviously you bought a longer bolt, but do you remember how long? any part number from lowes/home depot/wherever you got that bolt? Know the thread size of that idler bolt? Im trying to be as prepared as possible as to not hit any snags when doing this.

I will try to find out for you.. IIRC correctly I measured the OEM one that came out and it was about 55mm long total (measuring from the start of the threads to the end of the threads). I usually cut about 7mm off the end for a single-bearing idler, so if you have a single bearing idler I would think 48mm long bolt would be right. Even if its a mm shorter or longer I think it will still work fine.

I usually have the correct length ones on hand so I never had to go buy one. I had to cut this one down because it turned out I didn't have anymore on hand. I simply threaded the M8x1.25 die onto the bolt, placed bolt in a vice, sawed off 7mm's and then spun the die off to keep the threads spaced right at the tip.

So I guess to answer your question; it's a Metric 8mmx1.25 pitch thread that is ~48mm long
