Hello,

What should the right temperature be for the cambelts after a normal drive?

Hi Gerke

Just wondering if you have the right word as there is only one cambelt, but two camshafts?

Sorry to have ask, but just want to clarify as the cambelt temp is an unusual one to ask.

Hello Peter

You are right, i meant the timing belt, so not the right words

I'm asking this because ours gets very warm to the point you almost can't touch it, we also didn't is see any wear or tear on the belt either

But it's probably alright anyways, i just began to touch the timing belt because there was this odd smell coming under the hood but it's probably because everything is new

Hi Gerke,
My only thought is that maybe the belt is too tight.

I don't know how to describe the correct tension though.

Thanks for the response Nigel,

After having driven the car for a while, it seems like everything is still fine, the smell is gone and still no signs of wear on the belt either
