    Thumbs up Jobs for this weekend...

    Picked up a box of goodies from the Vx dealer in Elgin today:

    Cambelt
    Tensioner
    Waterpump
    5L Vx 5w30 oil
    Oil filter
    Oil drain washer
    3L Vx coolant
    Fuel filter

    total £120

    I decided to do the cambelt myself after reading the excellent HOW-TO, wish me luck!

    It's only 7k since the car's last service and a little bit early for the cambelt, etc, but I'll feel happier doing this lot.

    Maybe take some pics whilst I go along. If I remember. Which I usually dont.

    Was going to do the gearbox oil change too, but the dealers reckoned that I'd only need 2L of synth gearbox oil and I read somewhere that it takes more than that. Have since discovered on the Castrol website that it's 3.2L. I'll maybe pick up the oil tomorrow morning if I get time.

    Has anyone here changed their gearbox oil themselves? Any tips? Like where are the filler and drain plugs? Access any good?

    Just checked through the box of parts and I've been given a drive belt instead of a cambelt...

    So much for doing that job this weekend.
