    Default cambelt or chain????

    Can anyone tell me if the signum 2.0T has a cambelt or is it chain? I've heard alot of talk about chains on signum / vectra -c's is it just the oil burners???

    If they start to rattle it is a good thing to change them, I belive they have been know to snap on the rare occasion.

    I believe on the earlier 2.0T there was a tensioner problem or was that the ribbed belt tensioner?

    Very rare occasion I'd say - not heard of any owners on here suffering from that. You're not thinking of the old 2.2 (non-direct) are you Ed?

    The tensioner/alternator pulley issue was on the Multi-V belt.

    Nope, I haven't. As B.R.A. said, there's no service schedule relating to the chain on the 2.0T, nor any issues that I've heard of to do with them. They only need attention/looked at if there any untoward noises/rattling becoming apparent.
