Hi there,

It is also due every 4 years and I would recommend that you have a full cambelt kit fitted including both idler rollers and the tensioner.

Good evening, I hope I can help you.

 

The timing belt change should be at 60,000 miles or 6 years, whichever comes first.

 

You also need to change the guide pulleys and tensioner pulley at the same time.

 

You are also advised to replace the waterpump at the same time as they run on the same belt and are known to fail and cause serious engine damage.

 

I am a vauxhall master technician and have been for over 15 years.

 

Bill.
