Peugeot 106 Timing Belt Replacement
Changing the timing belt on a 2002 Peugeot 106 1.1 independence with the
TU1J5 fuel injected engine.
This car has still less than 50,000 miles but i think that is close to the
recommended interval, and there is also the fact that the timing belt
itself is original and about 12 years old so it is a good time to change
This is a fairly easy timing belt to change helped by the fact the car has
a spring loaded tensioner so there is no need to guess what tension the
belt should be at, and no worries that you can't find the mysterious SEEM
measuring tool that is mentioned in the haynes manual. (If it had a manual
tensioner you just have to tension the belt by hand which takes a bit of
experience but the SEEM machine is not needed)
In addition to that this engine is a simple single camshaft 8v engine, so
less things to mark the position of.
As for marking the position of the crank and camshaft before removing the
belt, i chose just to mark these parts with a marker instead of removing
the starter and locking the crankshaft via the flywheel, i did the locking
the starter via flywheel in other videos and got plenty of comments asking
if it was necessary, so here i just marked the positions instead.
Initially i had the intention of using the Haynes manual and quoting the
torque for the different nuts and bolts but after the water pump bolt broke
i decided not to bother and just tighten the bolts up by feel. I think my
draper 3/8 torque wrench was out of calibration which caused it to snap the
bolt, so if you have a torque wrench which is correctly calibrated then
take a look in the Haynes manual.
Take care when changing the timing belt, its a job which must be down
correctly if done wrong it has the potential to ruin the engine so if in
any doubt take the car to a mechanic to change the belt instead.
Peugeot 106 Engine Service
Servicing a 2002 Peugeot 106 1.1 Independence with a TU1JP Injected engine.
The car is one i am repairing as it was bought damaged, it has 43,000 miles
and although there is an entry in the service history book at 15 and 30,000
miles the last service was in 2007 so the car has done very little since
then it needed a service.
The things done in this video are:
- Engine oil flushed, then then drained, with a new oil filter fitted
- Gearbox oil filled after the oil had drained out when the drivehshaft was
- Air filter replaced
- Spark plugs replaced with NGK spark plugs the same as the ones which were
- Fuel filter replaced
I also did the pollen filter, but thats a tricky job and not worth the
effort, i will make a video separately about the pollen filter.
Apart from the pollen filter the 106 is an easy car to service, parts are
cheap and it seems to be a bit livelier after getting the old oil flushed
The timing belt will also be changed soon, its getting close to the mileage
for a timing belt and the car is still on its original belt which is 10
Peugeot 106 Acceleration 0-100 Top Speed & Sound Test
Peugeot 106 - We test the elderly Peugeot 106. With its small 1.0l 50 hp
engine, we experience the cold start, acceleration of 0-100 and the top
speed in this mini car. The Peugeot 106 was produced in two series. During
the first (S1) from September 1991 to April 1996 and the second (S2) from
May 1996 to July 2003 Here, the 106 S1 based on the Citroën AX introduced
a few years earlier, during the 106 S2 is technically almost identical to
the Citroën Saxo. Specifically, the vehicles of the first series were
relatively easy, so that even comparatively good performance could be
achieved with the smaller engines. Especially the XSi model with the
1.4-liter engine (94 hp) was at a maximum speed of 200 km / h and
acceleration from 0-100 km / h in under ten seconds for a small car very
quickly. Especially the Peugeot 106 GTI S16 with the 1.6 liter engine was
very fast. Therefore, they were very popular in rally racing use.
