205 XS Cam belt change

Post by rossd » 16 Mar 2001, 21:21

I've got to replace the head gasket on my 1.4 pug, so I may aswell replace the cambelt. This is the model that requires special tensioning, but I've heard from a garage that specialises in these engines that 6mm deflection on the longest run of the belt shows its tensioned about right. Is this true???
