Getz 1.4 petrol timing belt

Hi
Just looking for the correct method to change our Getz 1.4 petrol timing belt and any useful tips that may help please?
I read that the spark plugs need to be removed (want to renew as well) but where are they accessed?


THANKS

What year is your Getz? Location?





Best practices for requesting help:If you haven't done so fill in your vehicle info and profile page. At upper right corner under the search box click on user cp (it's your control panel)
This info will show up to the left under your user name and is very helpful.
BE SURE TO ADD YOUR LOCATION SO WE KNOW WHAT MARKET YOU ARE IN.


  • Be sure you are in the correct forum for your vehicle.
  • Do a search for your problem. A lot of stuff has been asked and answered.
  • Do not double post for the same problem.
  • Give the model year....Engine size...transmission type (auto or standard)
  • Take a single issue at a time. Posting multiple issues at once will get convoluted very quickly
  • VIN number can be very helpful
  • Vehicle history can be good. How many miles. If not bought new, how many have you put on it.
  • Describe the problem best you can. If a noise can you get a sound or video file
  • Tell us what has been done, if anything, thus far. If tests have been performed give actual results not OK or passed. If scanned for codes the actual code(s) not O2 sensor or MAF, Etc.
  • If the vehicle has been to a repair facility it would be nice if you could post a picture of that invoice/bill
  • If your vehicle is under warranty you should have the dealer check it out. If it's a problem they see many times they will generate a safety recall of TSB. This is how they know of the problem.

This information can save a lot of time and get you the answers you need much faster.


Thanks,
Welcome aboard.

Of all the things I ever lost I miss my mind the most.

Will try and add more details as you advised
Am in the UK car is a manual 2009 my girlfriend bought from new. Has been serviced but when I looked could see no stamp or receipt for any timing belt it's on 77k miles and been a great car , very reliable and better than I expected.

It's dead easy. You take it to the local garage and ask them to replace the timing belt....simples!

If your having to ask where the spark plugs live I think it's probably best that you don't attempt a timing belt DIY.

YIKES...I missed that. Definitely take it to a shop to have the timing components replaced.

Yes AUTOSPARK and grcauto thank you for your helpful advice.
It seems you both easily make assumptions and judgements with IMO a patronising and derisory attitude.

The reason for asking the questions was simply for me to be able to assess the difficulty of doing the timing belt and to work out the pitfalls, dangers and problems before I attempted it.
That's why forums are useful? - because you can discuss and evaluate things from honest comments from those people who have done a task and work out how easy or not it is (and as most decent DIY mechanics know, or learn fast by making big, costly mistakes, doing things properly is not about ego or taking on jobs that are too complex).

You know nothing of the DIY jobs I have done on a variety of cars nor how carefully I work and how good I am. I have 2 Porsche Boxster's (one for 7 years now) that I do all the maintenance, servicing and work on (except those jobs where a lift or special tools are needed or the work is far too specialised or complex).
I have only ever done 2 oil services and a starter motor on the Getz and am completely new to the engine layout (hence the seemingly daft question about where the spark plugs are! I did actually get a copy of the timing belt replacement procedure on this forum site and IMO it looks relatively easy (except for some aspects) and I did have a few questions to ask because I have never yet done a timing belt on any car!

The replies may have been a tad condescending, but the asking where the spark plugs are, (surely one just follows the HT leads) would lead a lot of DIYers to question your skills. Sorry, just an opinion.

Exactly.

Man, I was just trying to save the guy from wrecking his engine and he thanks me by calling me patronising and...eh...whatever that other word was.
Really hurt my feelings that did

LOL.....This kind of medium to 'talk' to each other leaves a lot to be desired or better yet.....leaves a lot to the imagination.....
It's so easy to misconstrue a persons true intentions.
@blucky57 I know sparky pretty well now and I know myself better these days. I'm sure Sparky didn't mean anything degrading and I know I didn't mean it that way either.
