    Vehicle : Insignia VX-line RED Tourer

    Trim : No, over weight!

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    Default Z20net

    Anyone done the timing chain and pre tensioners on the Z20NET ?
    Is this an easy (ish) job and any clues to the cost of the parts ?

    Mines just started to rattle on start up when cold, so i want to get it sorted asap before it turns into a diesel !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Have you got a copy of the Saab 9-3 Haynes manual handy? It's described in that. Probably best to get the parts from Vx rather than trust ebay, so use your Trade Club discount.

    Had mine done 3 years back tensioner only and they took £120 (2 hrs labour and tensioner £60) for the whole job i have since then bought the full kit tensioners/guides/chains/pullies etc which i got for a knock down price of £50 i went to the garage just before Xmas and asked them to fit the kit which the quoted me 5 hrs labour @£30 an hour but they were convinced the rattle i had was not the chain so i never did get it done i have since then changed to a sports cat after i was told rattle was plates in the cat which it was not
    hope any of that helps

    I think i'll get both manuals Jezzy Saab & Vectra and will only be using Genuine VX/Saab parts.

    So you'll sell me the kit then as you don't need it ?

    It's only got 39k on it just over 4 years old, serviced last month.


    I went to start it about 30mins ago and no rattle !
    Strange. I think i'll get it sorted anyway to be on the safe side.

    Mine is on 46k and a year older. I had a rattle which sounded like a chain rattle Fil(correct side etc), it ended up being an exhaust bracket near the front end - so maybe worth a look?

    everything you need to know fil is in the vectra haynes manual,and there is this http://www.speedsterclub.nl/biblioth...%20(Z22SE).pdf i know it says for the z22se but the lump's are the same iirc so will be a good guide for you to work too, give benny a pm on here and on the z22se forum,as he is west mids based so not far for you to go.

    It doesn't say that is where they are from, plus its a link to another forum.
