Make Your Own Timing Tension Tool

This is how I made the tool that pushes the tensioner off of the Timing belt. I did this to while removing my head. I did not have time to wait for the MD998738 "tool". Make sure to read the VFAQ on the timing belt removal.

I used the long bolt that holds the battery bracket down (the one with the rubber boot on it).

Using a dremel or a file, remove the tabs (arrow) down even with the bolt (dotted line).

This will enable the die to travel down the bolt.

Use a 8mm x 1.25 pitch die to thread it.
Thread the bolt using a 10mm socket and ratchet. Also, it is a good idea to oil the bolt and die first.
The arrow shows where the tabs were. The dotted line is where I stopped the threads. I wanted to make sure I had enough.

There is the bolt in the side of the timing assembly. I used an air ratchet due to limited space and then switched to a hand ratchet when I was close to the tensioner. It takes a while to thread it in.

The bolt can be reused on the battery bracket when you are through with it.
