Hey guys, gonna be changin the cam belt on me XE this next wekend, just a few quick questions, is it worth gettin a genuine vaux cam belt? Do i need tensioners and pulleys too? What kinda price is this lot form vaux?
all vaux belts are made by Gates, so find somewhere thats sells gate belts and pay a little less.
seeing that yours is a '93 you will have the later style of belt system(the one on the right), you migh aswell do the rollers and the auto tensioner while you are at it as the later ones are plastic as where the early ones are metal.
probably due to cost cutting, the earlier style rollers were made form metal completly and they cost about £70 each as where the the later style was made from plastic, yet the later style is more tricky to tension due to the stupid auto tensioner, well i found that anyway.
