    Default Crankshaft Pulley £80 is OEM equivalent

    Vectra 2.2 DTi elegance ( 52 plate )

    Ive just put the new crankshaft pulley on the vectra today. I bought it from vauxhall world parts and Ive been to vauxhall to weigh the OEM pulley...The exact same weight...
    It works ....No noise on tick over..No noise or vibration through the revs..Perfect just Perfect
    This is the previous thread to reference...

    and this one
    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...highlight=tosh
    So ive saved about £100 on the parts and more on labour charges...Easy job really with an impact gun....So save your money ....Im one happy bunny.....Tosh

    Quite honestly I don't know how anyone would get it off without an impact gun (and a good one at that)
    I jammed the ring gear but even with a scaffold tube it wasn't going to shift, anymore force would certainly have broken a tooth or worse.
    Actually after the stretch bolt I found getting the belt tensioner back on one of the most difficult things. Either way doing it yourself deserves one of these!
    BTW, did you leave the undertray off? I found my subframe really rusty.

    Funny enough I struggled with the belt tensioner until I realised that the 17mm nut on the tensioner is for pulling it back to get the belt on...
    Ive got a snap on air impact and had no problem what so ever, Even I was surprised, I thought I would struggle even with that. I suppose im one of the lucky ones......Tosh

    Which model have you got?
    If it's a dti and you've got a few miles on the clock it's well worth having the pulley replaced if you intend to keep the car for some time.
    The one Tosh bought is obviously fine, just don't make my earlier mistake and get a cheaper one, unless you want your car to idle like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! (that's showing my age)
