Hi,
I am new to this site, and have a question.

Can any one tell me where I can get the timing tools required to change the timing belt on a Volvo V70 2002

No tools are needed to do the T-belt. Unless you have to remove the pulleys, then you need to realign the cams. The tools required to do that are about $5-600.

Hi Mr Volvo.

I have been told that to remove the timing belt from the crankshaft end you have to remove the crankshaft pulley hence!

Well you need to remove the damper pulley for the serp belt, but not the pulley for the t-belt. You can do it with out removing the damper pulley, but I find it easier to remove it.

But no special tools are required to reassemble. If you remove the cam spockets, that is a different story.

Hi Mr Volvo.

That is exactly what I found out, but don't you need a C/Shaft pulley holding tool to remove the C/shaft pulley?
And I certainly do not intend to remove the camshaft sprokets.

Only if you don't have a 1/2" impact gun, to remove the large nut.

But if you try to remove the crankshaft pulley for the t-belt , you will need to two jaw puller. But the damper pulley for the serp belt, can be popped lose with a pry bar.

Hi Mr Volvo.

Sorry for the late reply, have been away.

I have a 1/2in impact gun, so no problem there.
Will try to get away without removing c/s pulley, if not have puller as well.

Thanks for all your help and input.

The cam timing tool is such a simple device you can make one.
On the back of the cams, after removing the covers, are two grooves that should be parallel with each other and the top surface of the cylinder head. Three peices of 3/16th flat bar welded or bolted together into a squareish "C" shape and pushed into the two grooves will lock the cams in place. You can now remove the cam pulleys and change the front oil seals (highly recommended when changing the belt)

If your pulleys have the elongated bolt holes where they bolt to the cams, this will make putting the belt back on much easier. Leave the six pulley bolts just less than finger tight, turn them clockwise until they are at the end of the elongated holes, install the belt (assuming the crankshaft is on timing mark) and pull the pin from the tensioner. The pulleys will turn as the slack is taken up, but the cams will not move. Now tighten the six bolts. Remove the locking tool and turn the engine over by hand (spark plugs removed) and check the timing. Crank pulley on it's mark, cam locking tool able to go back into the groove..

Have fun...
