    You might have different rollers so you won't be able to use the VXR kit. Go off the list below. my 53 plate gsi needed 2 different rollers . for everything including waterpump and new coolent cast just over £100 for parts trade price.

    ZLET/LEH Water pump and components:

    LET
    24409355 - Water Pump (gasket if not supplied - 90467121)
    55351782 - Timing/Cam Belt
    55353810 - Tensioner
    Rollers: Early models 2 @ 90529810, Later models 1 @ 90529810 & 1 @ 55353701
    If Late model then cheaper to buy the full kit @ 93185844

    LEH
    24409355 - Water Pump (Same as LET)
    93185844 - Full Timing Belt Kit
    or individually... as LET later models (ie 2 different rollers)

    Can I ask why you recommend using VXR / LEH parts?

    E.g. do they last longer or are they cheaper?

    Cheers

    The cam belts and water pumps on the LEH, LER, LEL and LET are all the same. its just the rollers that are different on the early LET's that you need the 2 different ones. you will have to check your engine number with vauxhall as to if you need the 2 different rollers or not.
