    You need Haynes manual 1222 - Vauxhall/Opel Diesel Engines.

    You can download the procedure from the autodata website for about £5.
    These belts aren't too bad to change, no special locking kit required, just a couple of m8 bolts to lock the cam & pump when the marks on the crank pully are aligned.

    beautiful logical japanese design...no rubbish with sprockets without locating pins etc..everything has it timing marks and pump and camshaft are indeed well lockable. just be careful, rotate the engine by hand after changing, check timing marks again and tension aswell. There are 2 different types of engine mount on these engines...but i believe you have to remove both types while changing cambelt....so support engine if needed and you'll be fine. It has been some time i had to change one... but have done several already... 5 times at least.

    good luck!
