    Hi all,
    just a swift intro introducing myself to the forum.....
    I am the proud owner of a 56 plate vectra CDTI sri 150 estate.....
    a standard NAV version with 75thou on the clock.
    Its had a full service history through its life........
    But tomorrow I am having the DMF looked at..its being done through my AA warranty I had when I bought the car...phew. It covers me for £1K total, but I am being told that worse case it could go upto £1,200 leaving me with the £200 excess. So fingers crossed.
    In a month or 2 I plan to do my own Cam belt change (being personally okworking on / with engines etc).
    I have particurlarly found that the forum is a useful hive of info, so congrats to all the contributors.
    Hopefully I will be able to bring some usefull bits along also....
    my other motor is a kit car (tiger racing Supercat E1_)
    please take a look......http://www.simons-supercat.fotopic.net/

    hope to chat soon...
    Simon.

    hi mate - best practice if there droping the dmf and clutch out would be to replace the belt at the same time
