    Default Timing belt

    I have a 53 plate 1.8 Vectra which has done 118,000 miles. When is it recommended that you change it ? How much can I expect to pay for the job ? Which is best, dealer or independent garage ? Thanks

    i change my cambelt and waterpump around 40000 miles on my 1.8 04 reg mainly because the waterpumps tend to go around 50 odd thousand and you have to change the belt to get at it

    so if your on 118000 miles i hope its had a belt change

    when was your last cambelt change?


    make sure you buy the cambelt kit with tensioners and waterpump

    i paid 230 pounds for the cambelt kit with tensioners and waterpump thats a private mechanic

    it says in the service booklet for the z18xe

    to change the belt and tensioner at 60000 miles

    or every 6 years

    personally i would do it sooner as described above
