I understand that the older cambelt tensioner was replaced with a newer tensioner around the year 2001...is that right?
But to fit the newer tensioner to the car you need a bracket of some sort.
OR you can just replace like-for-like and get an old cambelt kit.
Why did Vauxhall bring in this re-designed tensioner system?
What was wrong with the older system?
I specifically ask because I have the older setup on my car, but I was offered the newer kit with a bracket for around £85 more than replacing like-for-like.
I ordered the older kit for a simple like-for-like replacement as I wanted to save money.
Did I do the right thing?
