    Confused, Not Mechanicl Minded

    Car is going in for 40,000 service, I have read here to get the cam belt changed but when I looked in the haynes manual for what else to get done all it says is to change the timing belt, there is no mention of a cam belt. Is what you call a cam belt actually the timing belt or are they two seperate belts ?.
    Sorry if its a dumb question but my knowledge of engines you could write on the back of a postage stamp....lol.

    Thanks for the help guys & gals.

    Wow what a quick reply....thanks.
    My local garage ( not vauxhall ) but who are very good I've been told have quoted me £150 all in. Pads or shoes will be extra if needed but only the price of the parts no extra labour will be charged.
    Quite happy with that, prices were quite a lot more in other garages I contacted, next closest was £145 + vat for the service and £95 + vat for supply and fit of the cam belt.

    Cheers.

    I was advised to also get your water pump changed at 40k
