Inside Line: Dayco

by

The 1.5dCi, 1.6i and 2.0TCe engines used extensively across the Mégane range are fitted with a Dayco High Tenacity (HT) or ‘white’ timing belt as its original equipment fitment. These units also feature a water pump that is integral to its timing drive system and which is driven by the HT timing belt. Therefore, workshops undertaking either a water pump or timing belt replacement, need to realise that only by fitting a Dayco HT timing belt kit can they be assured of a genuine like-for-like replacement.

Dayco offer a range of timing belt kits that also include an OE water pump and these kits, which naturally include references for the Mégane, are designated with a KTBWP part number reference.

Dayco recommend technicians follow industry best practice and ensure that they replace the water pump when the timing belt is being replaced and vice versa. Both of these components cover the same mileages, so replacing both at the same time is the most cost effective option in the long-term and provides motorists with much needed peace of mind following a vehicle repair.
