How to replace timing belt on Jaguar XJ 3.0D V6 2010-

Replacement Interval Guide

  • Jaguar recommend:
  • Replace timing belt every 112,000 miles or 10 years.
  • Replace high-pressure fuel pump drive belt every 144,000 miles or 9 years.
  • The previous use and service history of the vehicle must always be taken into account.

Check For Engine Damage

CAUTION: This engine has been identified as an INTERFERENCE engine in which the possibility of valve-to-piston damage in the event of a timing belt failure is MOST LIKELY to occur. A compression check of all cylinders should be performed before removing the cylinder head(s).

Repair Times – hrs

Remove & install:
Timing belt 4,30
High-pressure fuel pump belt 2,30

Special Tools

  • Camshaft sprocket timing pins – No.303-1126.
  • Flywheel locking tool – No.303-1117.
  • High-pressure fuel pump sprocket locking tool – No.310-212.

Special Precautions

  • Disconnect battery earth lead.
  • DO NOT turn crankshaft or camshaft when timing belt removed.
  • Remove glow plugs to ease turning engine.
  • Turn engine in normal direction of rotation (unless otherwise stated).
  • DO NOT turn engine via camshaft or other sprockets.
  • Observe all tightening torques.
