Have become aware of need to change V6 Cambelt tensioners and rollers on X25XE engine when u change cambelt. Pity we already changed the cambelt so weve got to do the whole job again but thats the way it goes.
Where is the cheapest place to get the above bits or is it cheaper to buy as a kit?
Never heard another one of these running but this one makes a whizzing noise as u get up and come down on the revs.
We did check pulleys and tensioner for wear and they all seemed good, is this noise normal due excessive length of belt.
Do not know for sure mileage of engine so would like to play it safe, dont like the prospect of 24 bent valves etc etc.
Autovaux do a kit of parts, belt, rollers and tensioner. I think it was about £75+VAT.
A whizzing or whining noise from the belt area could indicate wrong tension of the belt or dodgy bearings in a tensioner. When runnng normally, the engine should be almost silent.
Thanks for that.
Cambelt should be at right tension as tensioner is automatic. Cambelt was put on by my mate and then checked by a Vauxhall mechanic, all checked out OK.
Any more places I can ring for prices so I can try and knock em down a bit?
