Cam Belt change
How hard is it to change a cam belt on a C18XE or how much would it cost for parts and to have it done??
Probably worth buying a kit comprising
Idlers, tensioner and belt. cant be far off £80 for piece of mind
worth doing water pump while you at it, cos if this siezes the belt slips and the engine goes bang.
Haynes manual has v good explanation
rod dwn plug no1 to get TDC
slip belt off
Not a terribly difficult job, just lock the pulleys to stop them moving
slip new belt on and tension appropriately.

the wee pulleys the belt runs along, im sure they have other names as well. The 20xe had a problem with the GF50 labeled idler made of fibreglass which thought it was funny to disintegrate.
