I'm new in town and I have a MAJOR problem! I have had my '02 Astra SRi 1.8 since July last year. Clean car, full service history. I'm only the third owner and I'm 100% certain that the car has always been looked after to the N'th degree. Every new nut and bolt had a reciept. The cam belt and relevant bits where changed in Feb 2006 @ 21,5000 as it was 4 years olg. 2 days ago, just 3 weeks over the next 4 year replacement date but at least 4,000 miles from the 40,000 mark, one of the pulley's sheered.
It's currently sitting at the Vauxhall dealership that replaced the Cam kit. They say that as it's over 4 years so it's pretty much tough luck. However, this just doesn't sit right. Can anyone shed any ideas on the subject? I know the cam belt can be flakey but to have one of the pulley's sheer??
Thanks in advance.
