    Default recommend a cam sprocket removal tool?

    Hi guys,

    Looking for a recommendation for a tool I can use to hold the cam sprocket still while I undo the bolt, I think Vauxhall use a tool called KM956-1. Need something that will definitely work with a 1.9cdti 8 valve and not to expensive

    Can't believe they put half of the water pump behind the cam shaft pully, but there you go!

    If it looks anything like the 1.8



    then it wouldn't be too difficult to fit something to the sprocket to hold whilst removing centre bolt.

    Unfortunately the sprockets are spaced apart so it's a hand held tool that I need.

    Yes, (ignore the red circles, they're just showing the timing marks) are the sprockets solid or have holes in, like the pic) on yours?

    If the sprockets are like these then it will work fine, i bought one to do the head on a k16 and the sprockets were very similar.

    The sprocket is the same as pic no 1 in post 9 in this thread. http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...270#post668270

    I have spoken to my mate who is a fiat expert, and he reckons it's good practice to remove the cam cover and mark it up before I remove the bolt, more things to take of the car lol.

    Should work fine with that type of sprocket.
