You have all probably seen the posts recently about our amazing 1998 Volvo V40 that is going to our new run-around/camera car here at Bridge Classic Cars. Although this being quite a modern car, it still deserves to be running and kept to the standards of our highest mechanical restorations that we do here in-house at Bridge Classic Cars.

One of the most overlooked parts of any service schedule on a vehicle is the cambelt change. This being a belt as opposed to a timing chain, it does suffer through age and also on the mileage of the vehicle and should be replaced periodically to preserve the health (and the happiness) of your engine. Our technicians here at Bridge Classic Cars have years of experience and this shows with end result. The cambelt change on this 1998 Volvo V40 was done in good time and will help preserve the longevity of these much-overlooked workhorses.

While the belt was being changed, the Volvo was treated to a full-service in-house at Bridge Classic Cars so that while we use the V40 as the new camera car for our Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, we can have complete confidence that it is happy and healthy.

Expect to see more on our Volvo V40 as we learn more about it and bring you along for the ride.
