    Fortunately one of the easiest to change.

    Others may not agree but it is far too easy to be a tooth out if you don't use the £40 locking tools. It goes in place nicely a tooth out. It is a bit of a struggle to get the belt on as it is very tight when correct between the crank and cam pulley.

    My old belt had paint marks (indicating locking tools were not used on it) but was still a tooth out and had been for 60k miles.
    If I had just replaced it by using the existing marks I would still be a tooth out!

    Vehicle : vectra-c

    Trim : sri

    Engine : cdti

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 98,000

    Default

    A good tip is fit with the sealy locking kit, fit the belt to the cam, & the crank, but not the others, secure at cam & crank then pull the belt tight in the middle to remove any 'slight' movement, then fit to rest on the r/n side first.
