    Default rough cost?

    Hi guys at what mileage should a 3.2 GSI Cambelt and tensioners be changed? and roughly how much would you be looking to have it done?

    Cheers Lee.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : GSi

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 202,000

    Default

    I finally got my finger out and did mine at about 85k miles. I shouldn't have left it that long, of course but I had assumed that the dealer would have done it before I got the car. Uh uh! Not if it costs them.

    It cost about £350ish for a friendly, good backstreet garage that I use near St. Albans (near where I work) to do the job, including my purchasing the kit from LMF Vauxhall - a Vectra C Club approved trader.

    The mechanic showed me the belt that was removed... Yikes!

    I aim to do it again in the next 12 months. It's only been two years but it's a little over 30k miles. It should be done every 40k miles, according to accumulated wisdom.

    I know the V6 Vectra B was every 40k. I'd expect the C to be the same.

    Had my siggy 3.2 done last month. (same engine etc)

    Mine has all the tensioner rollers and belt replaced (complete kit)
    Geniune Vauxhall kit.

    Replaced by a company called Fenns of Lynn (blokes who owns/runs it is ex Vaux workshop manager for 14 years)

    Now has his own place, was quoted £255, but took them less time so paid £228 all in!


    Vaux recommend the cambelt on this engine every 8 years or 80,000 miles, whichever is sooner.

    I know a bulletin went round all the dealers quite some time ago changing the 80k interval to 40k. I can't see why the z32 would be any different to the x25.

    On mine I was told the rollers had a bit of play in them but everything else looked like new

    Well it looks like all the dealers in Bucks, Berks, Hants, Oxon and Middx never got the bulletin beacuse of the ones I a while back, they all said 80k.
