    I have just purchased both the timing belt kit and the water pump from Vaux main dealer in Swindon, the cam belt kit was £101 and the water pump was 49.30. all including the VAT, going to fit it myself.

    The guy told me that the sealant for the water pump came with it, but upon opening the box it clearly doesn't .............. something else to buy.

    I would get a genuine one from Vauxhall being such a critical part

    Sorry but i thought the 1.9 cdti had a timing chain,
    and being a 2007 model it should not need changing
