Looked very straightforward to me, admittedly he did have the engine out. Don't know if the access is the same on the C5.

Very good as I'm about to embark on this journey. However reading my Citroen manual it does say to move the belt tighter pointer past the notch initially, loosen, then centre as this guy says. It suggests this to properly bed in the belt teeth.

The previous info I had on the belt change made it look quite complicated so I was delighted to find that video. Not going to be as easy in the car of course but I have done a fair few over the years and the video has given me renewed confidence - I have two to do. :? :)

A word of warning chaps ^ That is not the same for all 2.0 HDI engines between those dates!

There are different procedures for the DW10BTED4 and the DW10CTED4 engines that were available in these years, and that annoys me that he has not made that distinction, and both have a different procedure.

Donating members can access the DW10BTED4 timing belt procedure from the resources section here:

I have already put up the procedure for the DW10CTED4 engine specifically, in this post:

viewtopic.php?p=587221#p587221

So although there may be some similar operations, be careful as the devil is in the detail.

Thanks for that Marc. He has done another video for the later engine which is similar but not quite the same. Maybe they are all the same in the Fords but not the PSA,s, I think he only does Fords.

I have the Haynes book with the Mk 1 and 2 C5's, do you know if the facelift ones have the same engine?
