Remove the plastic pipes between the turbocharger (TC) and charge air cooler (CAC) and between the air cleaner (ACL) and turbocharger (TC). Put them to one side. Remove the clamp from the intake manifold for the turbocharger (TC) for cylinders 1, 2 and 3. Turn the upper section of the pipe towards the firewall.

Relieve the load from the belt tensioner.
Remove the auxiliaries belt. See: Drive Belt\Service and Repair
Remove the upper timing belt cover.

Disconnect the hose at the tank.
Lift up the expansion tank and place it on top of engine.

Raise the car. Remove
the right front wheel
the plastic nuts on the cover in the fender liner. Install the upper timing belt cover.
Turn the crankshaft clockwise until the markings on the crankshaft and camshaft pulleys correspond.
Turn the crankshaft a further 1/4 turn clockwise. Then turn back counter-clockwise until the markings correspond.
Remove the upper timing belt cover.

Remove the 4 vibration damper screws. Counterhold the crankshaft central nut.

the vibration damper
the auxiliaries belt
the belt cover behind the crankshaft pulley for the auxiliaries belt. Spray universal oil or similar around the rubber sleeve on the underside of the oil pump.

Remove the rubber sleeve.

Removing the timing belt

Slacken off the belt tensioner
Slacken off the center screw for the belt tensioner slightly.
Hold the center screw still.
Turn the tensioner eccentric counter-clockwise using a 6 mm Allen key.
Turn to 10 o'clock.
Unhook and remove the timing belt.Caution! Do not turn the camshafts or the crankshaft when the timing belt has been removed.

Checking the tensioner pulley and idler pulley Check bearing wear:
Spin the idler pulley and listen for noise. If replacing with a new idler pulley, tighten to 24 Nm .
Spin the tension pulley and listen for noise. When replacing, screw the tension pulley into place using the center screw.
Screw in the center screw by hand.
Ensure that the tensioner fork is centered over the cylinder block rib / bracket.
Ensure that the Allen hole on the eccentric is at "10 o'clock".

Installing the timing belt

Install the belt in the following order:
the idler pulley
intake cam
exhaust cam
water pump
tension pulley.Note! The variable valve timing unit on B6304S engines does not have a return spring. The unit is easily dislodged when reinstalling the timing belt.

Tensioning the timing belt

This adjustment is carried out on a cold engine. A suitable temperature is approximately 20°C / 68°F .
At higher temperatures (with the engine at operating temperature or a high outside temperature for example) the indicator is further to the right.
The illustration shows the position of the indicator when aligning the timing belt tensioner at different temperatures.
Carefully turn the crankshaft clockwise until the timing belt is tensioned. The belt must be in tension between the intake camshaft pulley, the idler pulley and the crankshaft.
Hold the belt tensioner center screw secure. Turn the belt tensioner eccentric clockwise until the tensioner indicator passes the marked position. Then turn the eccentric back so that the indicator reaches the marked position in the center of the window.
Hold the eccentric secure. Tighten the center screw to 25 Nm .
Check that the indicator is in the correct position.


Press the belt to check that the indicator on the tensioner moves easily.

Not sure if it is possible to have it run smoothly by being off a tooth.

The hash marks on the cam pulleys line up with the timing belt cover that goes over those pulleys. Should be two notches in the cover.

As for the lower marks...those aren't really visible till the lower aux. belt pulley is removed. Then you'll have a clear view of the line up marks. One on the inside and one on the outter area of the pulley itself.

When you put the t-belt is a good idea to replace the tensioner as well.

Also when you have the new belt on...adjust the tensioner so that the handle looking thing is centered between the two notches that hold the tensioner in place to the block.

After putting all that together, its a good idea to rotate the timing belt two to four rotations till the marks all line up again. That will let you know if you are hitting the valves or not.

Unless you have a workshop manual and are very confident, I would strongly suggest you leave this job to an experienced mechanic--it is very easy to get this wrong!

Do not take it off before you are ready with the new one.
Turn the crankshaft until the engine is at tdc. The key on the pulley should be at the top.
Use a little paint brush and a little paint,and mark a couple of teeth on the camshaft pulley and the belt in between these teeth. if there are any other pulleys using the belt, do the same for them.
Do the same for the crank pulley. Take off the belt, try not to move anything. Count the belt teeth between these two marks and transfere them to the new belt. Now fit the belt in the exact places that the old one came off. Do this very carefully and you should have no problems.

Your public library will have a manual covering your mechanical repair. Moreover, they have the automotive shops online software called AllData. It is the best auto technician database available today. You can print out specific troubleshooting procedures, diagrams, step-by-step istructions, and soforth. The typical person cannot afford to pay for this service, just automotive dealerships, etc... that is why the public library made it available to everyone and for free to view and print out material.

1994 Volvo 940 Station Wagon timing belt

I hope you've solved the problem by now, but there are alignment marks on the crank shaft (top pulley), idler (lower side), and cam shaft (smaller, bottom pulley) which should be aligned with stationary marks on the timing belt rear cover.

The belt has marks that align with the aforementioned marks (lines). The double marks on the belt align with the camshaft marks and the single marks with the others.

Loosen the tensioner clamp (nut) to allow the spring loaded tensioner to press on the belt and retighten the nut.

Rotate the crank shaft (clockwise, probably two revolutions) and make sure the pulley marks realign to the marks on the cover (they don't have to realign with the marks on the belt).

Rotate the crank shaft a full revolution once the belt is on and check that alignment is preserved.

Periodically loosen and retension the tensioner nut (access through a hole in the cover) to ensure that tension is maintained as the belt relaxes.
