    Default Vectra GSI questions

    Hi guys and gals,

    I just bought a Vectra 2004 GSI. Great car, awesome power and full of lux goodies. Pretty much faultless but there are a few question I was hoping someone might have the answers to.
    First, any ideas roughly how much a cambelt replacement job would cost on a 3.2l? (inc. water pump).
    And secondly, I get a headlight flicker when the car is at idle or low rpm almost like the alternator is on the way out....any ideas?

    Cheers

    Headlight flicker is normal when steering is turned as electric power steering pumps pulls a lot of juice

    Back in May 2008, I was quoted £400 inc VAT by VX stealer to supply and fit cam belt. Bill finally came to £586 inc VAT but included a new water pump, ancillary belt and six new spark plugs.

    HTH.
