    Default Cam Belt Changing

    Can I say first off what a friendly and helpful website this is, being made to be welcome straight away (sorry for the BS but its true).

    Another couple of questions to you knowledgeable people out there. What is the cost of changing the cambelt on the 1.9CDTi? Is it like the old petrol Vectras where it is belt, tensioner & idler + labour = lots of shekels?

    Do the diesel Vectra Cs have a pre-warmer to speed up the heater operation as diesels are renown for being slow to warm up?

    Thanks again.

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default

    Would anyone recommend changing the belt alone, or do it with tensioner and all the rest of the 'kit' at the first change (60,000 miles)

    Cos mine is past due by about 2000 miles now. oops

    The kit is about £77 from VX, do others make better belts than VX supplied?

    I'll do it myself, can't be that different / difficult from other cars. Anyone got a 'how to' for guidance??

    TIA

    change the whole lot.. preferably with a locking kit for the engine as well.. if the pulleys are firmly locked then i'll be plain sailing..

    it can be done without one.. but you just have to concentrate 100% on it as it's far harder without..

    I was told that 2004 MY cdti 80,000 miles and 2005MY on is 100,000 miles between changing. Might be worth checking if your Vectra is 2004 MY.
