would my 1.4 mk3 astra ls have an automatic ajuster for the timing belt if so would the belt be longer as i bought two one for mine and one for my girlfreinds nova gte and they are the same size.So would i have the wrong one?
Not sure on the comparison between 1.4 and 1.6 but when I bought a belt for my 1.4i Nova - was told that the belt was longer as it had the automatic tensioner. The older type engine design that you adjust belt tension by turning the water pump seems to have a shorter belt - makes sense as it would need to be longer to go round the extra component of the auto adjuster.
Someone mentioned elsewhere on the forum that if the engine plastic cam cover has a flat top cover, its an auto adjuster. if is a rounded top then its via the pump.
