    Default 1.8VVT Cambelt CX

    Well - just done it !

    Word of warning though - the two part cam locking tool you can get is rubbish. Got to the point of trying to fit the new belt, to find I'm half a tooth out as the tool does not give a positive enough lock and I can't get the belt on.

    Trying to get it sorted and - 'sproing' out pops the tool, cams turn and I dispair.


    An hour later I've knocked up a camshaft locking tool to fit on the shaft ends ( having taken the rocker box off ) and it all goes back fine from then on.

    Around 4 1/2 hours all told, but the next one ( wife's Astra ) will take no where near as long

    BTW - a very useful 'how to' for this job is on the US Saturn forum. It is actually for an 'Astra' but is much the same.

    I have e-mailed the author, asking if I can add it ( changed as necessary for a Vectra ) to our how tos.
