Hi, my 1.7 cdti mk4 van is due a timing belt soon (63k, vauxhall recomended 70k) So going to do it asap.

Im a petrol head at heart, and small block tuning is what i know best. so know relatively little on these diesel lumps.

Im going to get the timing belt kit, a water pump (take it this is recomended?) And will give it a service while im there.

Are there any special locking tools, or hints i need to know? (or am i easier putting it to the local garage and paying a few hours labour)
