    Arrow HELP ME? GSi cambelt service needed...

    Can anyone that lives near-ish to Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire offer me help with a DIY cambelt swap? I have never really touched the car but want to get the cambelt renewed and an oil and filter swap done, etc., maybe spark plugs too.

    If there is anyone that could help with at least the cambelt change - i.e. has the right tools and experience - please let me know, either here or via a PM.

    I could throw money at the VX stealer but want to have a go myself, to be honest. I would source all the parts.

    Anyone?

    Cheers.

    the best person to ask about them would probably be gsi3.2 he knows everything there is to know about the gsi and i think he is locally to you but could be wrong

    Cambelt changes on the GM 2.5, 2.6. 3.0 & 3.2 aren't hugely easy, so if this is your first, you'd do well to stay away from changing cams at the same time.

    Think if you asked GSi3.2 he would advise you to leave well alone unless you REALLY REALLY knew what you were doing, would be a very costly mistake if you get it wrong.

    I asked 3 local and trusted garages to change mine, no one would touch it, had to goto a main dealer in the end.........moral of the story... if garages dont want to know......dont attempt it yourself
