type r timing belt

5 posts in this topic

how much to get the timing belt done on a civic type r 02 reg?

also, are wheel bearings prone to wear, my car's done 87k with fsh. I'm sure I can hear a wheel bearing moaning!

IIRC the Civic Type R engine is chain driven so £0 (worth doing a quick Google search or look on some of the more specific forums to confirm 100%).

Wheel bearings - could be going if you can hear the grumbling around the bends. However, the whole front suspension of the CTR isn't exactly known for being man strength so could possibly be something else.

ah yea. i think your right. no belt but a chain.

i thought the noise was a bearing cause it gets louder the faster the car moves, not related to engine speed.

think i'll jack the car up and spin the wheels

cheers

Check your tyres before suspecting the wheel bearings. I had a Leon Cupra R and had rumbling from the rear and i was sure it was a wheel bearing. Turned out that the Goodyear F1 tyres were the culprit even although there was a good few mm tread left.

good idea. my front tyres are low on tread and a bit perished. they've probably gone a bit hard.

there also a cheap make, from prev. owner. I've only just bought the car.

just found toyo proxes online for £72 each fitted on black circles, not bad
