I started this job yesterday got everything stripped down & ready, just about to remove the belt and came across a big problem - the cambelt kit & waterpump sold by the main Vx dealer is the wrong one!!!
Thankfully, immediately before removing the original belt & waterpump, with everything now clearly visible, I checked new against existing and firstly, it was obvious the waterpump was a completely different part. Checking then, the belt, it was the wrong length and the tensioner included in the kit (there was no idler in the prepacked kit!) was wrong. So, I had no option but to re-assemble everything and will have to have it out with the dealers parts dept who produced this set of parts after a phone discussion. It is obviously their mistake as they asked me the reg no and I had clearly said 1.9CDTi and anyways, they know my car as I'm a regular user of the parts dept. By the time I got to this stage about 12:45 Sat, it was too late to phone the dealer & I had no car to get there anyways.
So, once the parts issue is sorted, I've got the whole dismantling procedure to go through again. Still, because I've now done it once, I know the procedure first hand so it should be considrably quicker to get to the "belt off" stage. Also, I had already gone through the camshaft/crank pulley 'locking' stage so I know everything is perfect there so should be able to proceed next time with the "How to" cam pulley timing marker alternative which will save a bit of time.
At least I know, after checking the belt on both inner and outer surfaces is 'good' so it's not about to fail & will last another week or 2 until I go at it again.
I did curse myself for not checking the parts before I began but then thought it wouldn't have made any difference as I wouldn't have known any different as I didn't know what the proper parts looked like and anyways, wouldn't have had any reason to doubt the garage.
The GM packaged waterpump casting is stamped "Renault" so whatever engine it's for is Renault derived or shared with Renault.
Part numbers of the incorrect parts are:
Belt kit - 93161478
Waterpump - 93198565
Accessory drive belt - 93196186
Any idea which bits they've given me?
