    Question Cambelt change but what else???

    Right, so i'm about to book the car in for a Cambelt change as it is already somewhat overdue. COuple of questions though:

    Firstly, What else should I be looking to get done at the same time? Water Pump for one, anything else?

    Secondly, Where is the best place to get a kit and the other parts for the Z20LET engine? Links and Part numbers all very welcome.

    Lastly What's a good price if I provide the kit to get all the bits swapped etc? Vauxhall quoted me £240 or so but that was them providing and changing cambelt only, didn't include water pump etc etc.

    Cheers

    get the full cambelt kit i.e. tensioners etc all done, make sure it's not just the belt.

    water pump as you mention, because it's a "belt off" job and at £30 you may as well get it done for peace of mind that it won't go pop and cost you another cambelt change a few months down the line.

    as for prices, take the AOC trade club number and get down to VX and ask about the prices for the kit. also go to AutoVaux, and see what they can do as they give full members a discount too.

    In terms of labour, a couple of hours is usually what I get charged by my local indy garage.
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    I priced all this up last week

    Autovaux are cheapest and they are genuine parts

    z20let upto 2003 pn 93174265 £50.64 plus vat

    z20let 2004 on pn 93185844

    http://www.autovaux.co.uk/LoadPortal...174265&tabid=5

    Quite a saving compare to Vxl's prices

    also, get a OE water pump of ebay, again genuine are cheaper online

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...#ht_2366wt_911

    the ones Autovaux sell are not OE and have been known to fail after 20k

    Yeah I was just looking on Autovaux and seen that but when I search on the part number for 2004 onward nothing comes up so I can't add to the cart to pay for it! Will have to give them a call!

    Assuming then also that there is nothing else worth changing at the same time other than what's in the kit and the water pump though right?

    As far as I am aware, there is not anything else to change.

    Yeah I shall get the whole lot done. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything whilst I had it in to get done!

    Mine is probably fine as although it's gone past the year marker for a cmabelt change it's still about 15k short on miles for the change!

    Just rather get it done sooner rather than later so I can put my mind at rest that it's done and is all safe etc.
