As the title suggests, my little 1.0L is nearing its 150K mile timing belt service. Because of this, I've been getting part prices and such. I'm actually a little taken aback honestly at how much work is involved. I've done timing belt changes on toyotas (easy) and vws (harder) but this 1.0 is going to be a pain in the arse. Getting the front cover back on without having any leaks and the loosening/tightening of the crank pulley bolt are two areas of concern. ( Actually the cost of the specialty tools for the crank pulley bolt ) I can get the sst kit on Amazon for ~ $90 but the torque multiplier for the crank pulley bolt is another matter entirely.

Has anyone on here changed their timing belt or had it changed yet? If you did it yourself where did you source the special service tools?

I did find this video on youtube which shows some of the process:

I have not changed mine as I’m only at 73k. I watched the video. The crank bolt removal looked fun. Also a bit concerned with cleaning the gasket material off the block with the oil pan open catching all the debris; he should have covered it. Would have been great if he showed a close up of the belt and any wear spots.

When I get to 150k I am considering just swapping out the motor for a low mile used one.

I just replaced the head gasket on mine. Let me know if you have any specific questions. I purchased the flywheel holder and made my own cam holder and tdc peg... its a hassle for sure.

The pulley came loose with a breaker bar pretty easily. The torque spec is 52 lbft and 450 degrees. I just made it as tight as i could within reason with a 3 foot breaker bar...

Thanks for the info and offering help. I may need it!

I'm at 90k now. After seeing that video, I'm feeling more resolute in my plan to sell the car at 140k.

I had mine changed by a shop at 180,000 miles. I had a shop do it because I wanted a warranty on the work with the 1.6L being an interference engine. I had them replace the thermostat and water pump as well.

I imagine that the 1.0 and 1.6 are not too similar as the 1.0 is oil bath and direct injection I believe.

1.6 was actually easier than I feared. I started the job without a crank holding tool and had to stop short of finishing the job because of it. I ordered one, waited until it arrived, then finished. Bad news is, took several days out of a solo trip I had planned. Good news is, I broke my bike on day one anyway so no big deal. Did a track day a couple weeks later.
