Product Description


Replacing the timing belt on your Volvo can alleviate many fears and concerns, especially if you’re gearing up for an adventure or trip. If you just purchased a Volvo and you’re unsure when the timing belt was replaced we recommend erring on the side of caution and replacing.

You hear horror stories all the time regarding a failed timing belt. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those stories can be true if you don’t maintain the timing belt and timing belt drive components on late model Volvos. Timing belt kits normally consist of a timing belt, idler pulley, and tensioner. The timing belt races around these pulleys and gears keeping the valvetrain of your engine in check! The timing belt plays a critical role in your cooling system too. Timing belts often drive the water pump for your Volvo’s engine. If any of these components fail, the damage can be catastrophic to your cylinder head and internal engine components. 

Timing belt intervals range from 70K-110K miles, depending on which model you have. It’s always a good idea to replace the components that support the timing belt as well.  There’s nothing worse than paying a technician, or spending an afternoon replacing a timing belt only to have a bearing fail soon after. 

We've assembled the best timing belt and water pump kits using Original Equipment Supply components. Our experience in the Volvo market has helped us source the highest quality components at affordable prices.  We want you to have confidence in the parts you’re installing on your Volvo so you can have confidence everything you turn the key!

About OES

OES or Original Equipment Supplier, refers to manufacturers of Volvo Blue Box parts that Volvo has contracted out to. For example, Volvo does not make spark plugs itself, but instead gets spark plugs meeting their specifications from ignition specialists like Bosch and NGK.

Where you see a part marked OES, it means it's coming from the same source that supplies Volvo OE products. You get the peace-of-mind of a Genuine Volvo part, without the huge price tag.
