    Its a common problem.

    I work for LMF Vauxhall and I can supply a brand new pully for £59.95 plus £8.50 shipping.

    I've no idea what sort of cost fitting will be though.

    Quite a few of us have had this - including me. You would be well advised to get a genuine Vauxhall pulley - cheaper aftermarket one are available but can be too heavy and/or not balanced properly and cause vibration.

    You'll also need a new pulley bolt. Cost of genuine parts is around £170 but worth it for peace of mind and lack of problems in my opinion. The old bolt will be in extremely tight - it took a 1" impact driver usually used on lorries to get mine out! Total cost including labour for me was about £230 from an independent Vauxhall specialist.

    Do a bit of seaching on here to find out other people's experiences, recommendations, and problems. Well worth a few minutes of your time.

    PS - my comments are not a reflection on the part LMF sell because I didn't get mine from there and I don't know who makes the ones they supply. If it's a genuine part for that price then it's a great deal!

    Why do you need a new bolt?

    Because it's large, tightened to a high torque, been in there for years, and takes an impact driver to get out. I don't know how you'd get the remains out of the crankshaft if a weakened re-used bolt sheared off, or what damange the new pulley could cause if it broke free at high revs.

    Also, the bolts only cost about £10 and I'd rather pay that and have peace of mind - and both TIS and Haynes say to fit a new one.

    I didn't fit a new bolt on my 1.8 when i have replaced the timing belt (twice) - yes it is tight, but didn't need an impact driver to remove it.

    I haven't seen the bolt for the 1.8 petrol but as the engines are totally different, then I guess that the bolts may be quite a bit different too. I notice that the torque for the bolt on the 1.8 petrol is quite a bit lower than the one for the DTI's for a start, but it is actually recommended to change the bolt on the 1.8.

    I have stated the reasons above - including the fact that the manufacturer says to replace the bolt. That's good enough for me - especially for the sake of £10 and because we're starting to stray from the main topic a bit - crankhaft pulley replacement on DTi engines.
