    Default Anyone changed the belts on a 1.8 vvt?

    Is it any easier / cheaper to do than the normal cam belt?
    Is changing the water pump any easier as its not on the cam belt?

    I'm not sure it is the cam pullies that do the variable timing, so i should think this would be one area it would be different!!

    the 1.8 xer (vvt) is totally different to the earlier z18xe ....the early engine needs a cam belt kit fitting and a water pump beeing as it is driven via the cambelt ....
