    Angry 3.2 v6 Timing Kit Change Problem...

    Hi Guys,

    Just rang Vauxhall to book timing kit change on my Signum (73500 on the clock) and when told them that I'll supply timing kit and pump they refuse to do the job. What they said is they need proof (receipt) that parts are bought at Vauxhall. Similar job couple of months back on my 2.2Direct wasn't problem when gave them timing chain kit! I bought Conti kit through eBay to save some money and now it looks like I need to buy another one from Vauxhall. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Vauxhall are an OEM so will only fit OEM parts.
    If you want non-OEM parts fitted you will have to go to an independant garage.

    What U mean? 2.2Direct is history now, sold and in excellent condition up to date, timing chain was manufactured for GM but bought from eBay at good price but it's a history now. The point is why they agree to fit parts brought by me to one car and now they refuse to do so with the other car (3.2 this time).
