    How many timing belts/chain in a 2.7L D4

    Hope someone can help me out with this. My 2011 2.7L D4 has reached its 8 year mark and Ive been told needs the timing belt replaced due to time expiring, the car has 128K kmís on the odo.

    I had 4 quotes but half the workshops are saying my car has 1 belt and the other half are saying it has 2. As a result the quotes for the job are between $2400 and $3800 depending on the number of belts that need replacing.

    ive been told the pulleys and water pump should also be replaced.

    Can anyone shed some light on their belt replacement and how many bloody belts my car has.

    Cheers
    Mike

    How many timing belts/chain in a 2.7L D4

    Three :-) Front that drives the camshafts off the crankshaft plus a high pressure diesel pump which has a belt that is driven off the rear of the left hand camshaft.
    The third is your accessory drive belt aka fan belt. Up to you if you change that at the same time.
    Yes Iíd do water pump and the timing belt tensioners and idlers too. Having suffered from a leaking crankshaft oil seal Iíd change that too while I was in there.
    Good luck. Oh forgot. Some will recommend taking the body off to do it, others will do it body on.

    Not strictly correct. The rear belt is doable body on, itís just difficult. Thereís a good guide by Disco Mikey on disco3uk on how to do the rear belt body on. I think it might be next level hard on the 3L however.

    2 belts

    Went through the same exercise, there are basically 2 belts one at the front and one at the rear.
    most shops quote with body on, no need to take the body off though the rear belt is difficult with limited access and view. Price can varying depending on what else gets done. Most do, do the water pump while doing this job but that just adds another approx $100 for the pump so worth doing.

    Yes do all belts

    Yes do water pump as a cheap part and no extra labour

    Also do the plastic cooling junction part ĎWater Connectorí on top of the 2.7D engine that should be replaced 7-10 years before it cracks and cooks engine. Cheap part and all the bits you need to remove to access are already off.

    For the cost consider both the connectors in this picture.

    Maybe JC or Dazza can confirm that the D4 body is different around the pump which makes it difficult to access.

    I can confirm, both belts were done on my 3.0SDV6SE with body on at 172.000km /8years.

    Total cost was 1800 AUD at a LR dealer.
