I own a daihatsu mira 2009, and cant seem to find crap for it. Sadly i regret buying her as its my first car and im not a car person but i didnt realize parts come into play when getting a car. So i needed a water pump and was able to find one similar but cant find a timing belt or tensioner for her at all!

Np, you can't use just any timing belt. They are vehicle-specific.

NAPA online list many belts for that engine but none for the "exact fit". You will need to measure yours to be sure of an exact fit The way to measure yours is to lay a tape measure on a table mark the belt on the back side start with the mark and roll the belt down the table until the mark comes around, do the same with the new belt.

Anyone that even asks if other timing belts fit shouldn't be playing mechanic!

There were two different engines.

A 1KR-FE and KF I3.

Which one do you have? I found parts for both, but can't help you without knowing which engine you have.

If you cannot obtain the correct one from stock anywhere, then search online for "custom fabricated timing belts". There are quite a few suppliers who can manufacture them to order.

For the tensioners and belts also contact Toyota dealers. Daihatsu and Toyota are under the same ownership and share a lot of parts. If dealers in North America don't have them then cast your nets wider: eBay gives you a worldwide reach for both new and used parts. Used tensioners might be OK if the seller has excellent feedback (read the comments, not just the scores) and guarantees what they sell, but never buy a used timing belt.

sorry but Diahatsu parts are hard to get. However if you can find a dealer you should be able to order one

Daihatsu was taken over by Toyota. Different markets have different engines. But if your Mira is fitted with the1KR-FE engine, this engine is shared with the Toyota Aygo and Yaris, Citroen C1 and Peugeot 107. Search for 1KR-FE on e-bay
