hi guys, my vectra broke down 2 days ago, the problem is the belt and the pulley I was told that the motor has to come out to change these broken parts? Can these be changed without pulling motor out of car, thanks

HI there,

Just got to work and checked the engine timing belt book, this job requires 6 special tools some are just locating pins but others are more intricate, it takes around 3 hrs to do and it is done in situ, but as I mentioned it is a tight fit, now if you have broken a timing belt, the news is not so good as valve damage will result due to this being an interference type engine.
