The pump on my Astra 1.7TD Low blow has failed.... 2nd in 8 months! I've got a replacement from the local scrappie, but our local garages are too busy. I've replaced belts on other cars in the past but never a diesel pump on an Astra! Is it possible to completely do the job on a DIY basis without the use of 'Special' tools - as I'm getting pretty desperate now. I've got patience to do most jobs and would give it a go! I've read the workshop manual... but they are talking Dial test equipment, adjusting the cam etc.
Can anyone simplify the operation?
