    confused 2.0DTi Crank Pulley !!

    Had the pleasure of mine falling apart last night, unfortunatley for me I was in the 10 min wait zone at Luton Airport when it failled and waited for the AA to recover the car home not th ebest way to use 3hrs of your life just waiying for the £80 over limit charge to drop through my mail box.

    Is this job possibel for DIY at home or should I get a garage to do it ?

    I have no issues in paying for the Vx part & bolt for peace of mind.

    Yout thoughts are welcome.

    Biggest problem will be the pulley bolt.

    Ideally you need an impact gun as it shocks the bolt loose and not just turn it.

    To do it I released the aux belt then undid the 3 engine mount bolts enough to lower the engine (Not fully undone) so as to be able to get a socket on the pulley and used my impact gun to remove the bolt.

    Unhappy

    Thanks Lee,

    I've had my car taken to a mechanic (£45.00 tow charge) to have the pulley work done.

    Vx Parts (inc Vat)
    Pulley - £229.20
    Bolt - £15.18
    Belt - £26.82
    Tensioner - £80.40

    Total - £351.60

    Labour costs ~ 1.2 hrs

    I don't see mee getting much change from £550.00

    Been there, done that!

    Note that the tensioner doesn't need to be replaced unless it is indicated e.g. it's seized up or leaking or something. However, it may well be worth making the investment in getting it done while the garage is in that area of the car as it could save on labour charges in the long run.

    The parts prices you have got are right although your garage should be able to get the pulley reduced to around £206 and the tensioner to £73 from a Vauxhall dealer if they ask nicely.

    Garages who do this job regularly may well have a cut-down socket for the pulley bolt. This removes the need to drop the engine and thus saves on labour costs.

    Don't be tempted to skimp on a non-genuine pulley as some are not weighted/balanced properly and can cause vibrations which could cause damage to other engine components.

    Hi James,

    The mechanic will only fit genuine VX parts owing to previous issues in 'pat' parts

    Fingers crossed I'll get my car back tomorrow all working nicely

    I thought the price you quoted seemed a little high so I dug out my receipt and it looks like Vx have jacked up the price of the pulley.

    When I had this job done in 2009 the total cost of the job was £254 which included (genuine) parts (pulley and bolt only as belt and tensioner were OK) of £192!
