Contained in this how to is the information required to change your cambelt. It is not a substitute for experience, and you should not attempt to do this yourself unless you are absolutely sure of your abilities to do the job. Below is pretty much all the information that you should need in order to do the job correctly, using the correct tooling.

Replacement Interval Guide

Vauxhall recommend replacement as follows:

Replacement every 40,000 miles or 4 years, whichever occurs first (tensioner pulley must also be replaced).

NOTE: The previous use and service history of the vehicle must always be taken into account.

Labour time

To remove and replace: 2.5 hrs Skill level: Intermediate to advance.

Special Tools

1. Kent Moore No.KM800 1. RH camshaft locking tool (red)

2. Kent Moore No.KM800 2. LH camshaft locking tool (green)

3. Kent Moore No.KM800 10 Crankshaft locking tool.

4. Kent Moore No.KM800 20 Camshaft timing gauge

5. Kent Moore No.KM800 30 Belt holding tool/wedge (yellow)

6. Kent Moore No.KM883 1 Engine support

This how to assumes you have the correct tools or equivalent as required to change the cambelt.

Suggestions

1. Disconnect battery earth lead.

2. DO NOT turn crankshaft or camshaft when timing belt removed.

3. Remove spark plugs to ease turning engine.

4. Turn engine in normal direction of rotation (unless otherwise stated).

5. DO NOT turn engine via camshaft or other sprockets.

6. Observe all tightening torques.

PAS pump pulley.

PAS pump pulley.

Auxiliary drive belt tensioner.

Auxiliary drive belt tensioner.

Crankshaft pulley bolts [1] .

Crankshaft pulley bolts [1] .

Crankshaft pulley [2] .

Crankshaft pulley [2] .

Timing belt cover.

Timing belt cover.

2. Turn crankshaft clockwise until just before timing marks aligned [3] & [4]

3. Fit locking tool to crankshaft [5] Tool No.KM-800-10. Turn crankshaft slowly clockwise until tool arm rests against water pump flange. Secure in position.

4. Ensure timing marks aligned [3] & [4] .

NOTE: Camshaft sprockets have dual timing marks. Camshaft sprocket CA1 timing mark 1 must align with timing mark [4] camshaft sprocket CA2 timing mark 2 must align with timing mark [4] etc.

5. Fit locking tool between camshaft sprockets CA3 & CA4 [6] Tool No.KM-800-2 (green). If locking tool will not fit between camshaft sprockets CA3 & CA4:

Slacken lower guide pulley bolt [7]

Release belt tension slightly by turning lower guide pulley G1.

6. Fit locking tool between camshaft sprockets CA1 & CA2 [6] Tool No.KM-800-1 (red). If locking tool will not fit between camshaft sprockets CA1 & CA2:

Slacken upper guide pulley bolt [8]

Release belt tension slightly by turning upper guide pulley G2.

7. Slacken tensioner bolt [9]. Turn tensioner pulley fully clockwise to release tension on belt [10]. Lightly tighten bolt. If not previously carried out:

Slacken lower guide pulley bolt [7] .

Slacken upper guide pulley bolt [8] .

8. Remove timing belt. If camshaft sprockets are to be removed: Note position of dowel pins in relation to timing marks.

Camshaft sprocket CA1 uses No.1 for dowel pin location and timing mark alignment [11] .

Camshaft sprocket CA2 uses No.2, CA3 uses No.3, CA4 uses No.4.

Fit new bolts [12]. Tightening torque: 50 Nm + 60° + 15°.

Installation of new cambelt

NOTE: Renew timing belt if it has been disturbed or removed from engine. Ensure dimensions of new belt match original belt.

1. Ensure all locking tools located correctly [5] & [6]

2. Ensure engine is cold before installing belt.

3. Fit timing belt to crankshaft sprocket. Ensure double lines on belt [13] aligned with crankshaft timing marks

[3]

4. Observe direction of rotation marks on belt [14]

5. Wedge belt into position. Use tool No.KM800 30 [15]

6. Fit timing belt around tensioner pulley [10]

7. Fit timing belt to camshaft sprockets CA1 & CA2. Ensure single lines on belt [16] aligned with timing marks [4] Ensure belt is taut between sprockets.

8. Fit timing belt around upper guide pulley G2.

9. Fit timing belt to camshaft sprockets CA3 & CA4. Ensure single lines on belt [16] aligned with timing marks 4]. Ensure belt is taut between sprockets.

10. Fit timing belt around lower guide pulley G1.

11. Ensure slack at does not exceed 10 mm.

12. Turn lower guide pulley [17] anti clockwise until the tip of the eccentric is positioned at approximately 2 o'clock [18]

13. Tighten bolt to 40 Nm [7] .

14. Turn upper guide pulley [19] anti clockwise until the tip of the eccentric is positioned at approximately 11 o'clock [20] . Tighten bolt to 40 Nm [8] .

15. Slacken tensioner bolt [9] .

16. Turn tensioner pulley [10] fully anti clockwise until it just reaches stop.

17. Allow tensioner pulley to turn back slowly until a dimension of 1 mm is attained [21] . Tighten bolt to 20 Nm

[9]

18. Remove: Locking tools [5] & [6], and Belt holding tool [15] .

19. Turn crankshaft slowly two turns clockwise until just before timing marks aligned [3] & [4] .

NOTE: Belt marks are for installation purposes only. They will no longer align once crankshaft has been turned.

20. Fit locking tool to crankshaft [5] . Tool No.KM800 10. Turn crankshaft slowly clockwise until tool arm rests against water pump flange. Secure in position.

21. Ensure timing marks aligned [3] .

22. Fit timing gauge to camshaft sprockets CA3 & CA4 [22] . Tool No.KM800 20.

23. Slacken lower guide pulley bolt [7] .

24. Turn lower guide pulley [17] anti clockwise until timing marks on camshaft sprocket and timing gauge aligned [23] . The tip of the eccentric is now positioned at approximately 12 o'clock [24] . Tighten bolt to 40 Nm [7] .

25. Fit timing gauge to camshaft sprockets CA1 & CA2 [22] . Tool No.KM800 20.

26. Slacken upper guide pulley bolt [8] .

27. Turn upper guide pulley [19] anti clockwise until timing marks on camshaft sprocket and timing gauge aligned [23] . The tip of the eccentric is now positioned at approximately 9 o'clock [25] . Tighten bolt to 40 Nm [8] .

28. If upper guide pulley is marked with the letter 'B' [26] , ensure this is positioned within the 'Safe Zone' [27] .

NOTE: If the letter 'B' is NOT within this area, the guide pulley will lock up causing serious engine damage.

29. Remove timing gauge [22] .

30. Slacken tensioner bolt [9] .

31. Turn tensioner pulley [10] fully anti clockwise until it just reaches stop.

32. Release tensioner pulley slowly until marks are approximately 3 4 mm apart [28] . Tighten bolt to 20 Nm [9] .

33. Remove crankshaft locking tool [5] .

34. Turn crankshaft slowly two turns clockwise until just before timing marks aligned [3] & [4] .

35. Fit locking tool to crankshaft [5] . Tool No.KM800 10. Turn crankshaft slowly clockwise until tool arm rests against water pump flange. Secure in position.

36. Ensure timing marks aligned [3] .
