Camshaft belt tensioner


Ok My wife has a 2001 ZX2 with 78,000 miles and the bolt that holds the belt tensioner for the camshafts just sheared offf… has anyone eles had this problem and what was the direct cause for the bolt to shear off… and does the engien need to be pulled out to realine the crank inorder to degree the cams?

I’m not sure what would cause the problem you have run into, but you should be able to access the crank pulley by removing the front passenger wheel and some plastic shields.

If you have access to a lift this will make the job a bit easier.

You forgot an important part of your statement that makes it make sence. :slight_smile: - FF
