Cambelt - 2.0 CDTI, 2011
#1
Hey folks,

Been looking into this for a while and some conflicting information from Vauxhall Garages.

Was always under the impression from the garages information that:
- Astra 2.0 CDTI was 60k or 6 years
- Insignia 2.0 CDTI was 100k or 10 years
(whichever comes first).

Anyway, now im at stage where im defiantly looking to get it done, and Vauxhall have apparently revised it for both engines to 100k or 6 years, whichever comes first. I rang up HQ to check and this is what they advised.

Question is, does it REALLY need doing at 6 years??

I know its a pig if the belt goes as engine is goosed, but im just curios.

Thanks.

My Astra has done 64000 and will be 6 years old next month, I wouldn’t think that once it hits 6 years it’s going to be at loads more risk of breaking than it was at 5 years old but I suppose Vauxhall have got to cover themselves the same as any other Manufactuer?
With that said, it is on my list for this year as I wouldn’t want the repair bill if it went

I dunno about the 2.0
but my 1.6 petrol was done at 6 years old (only 48,000miles!!)
I was told that the astra H was 100,000 or 10yrs, and that Vx had changed it for the J
it applied to all models even those with same engine types
retrofitted = DAB+, GM dog guard

Is the waterpump powered by the cambelt?

I know on earlier Vauxhalls, although the cambelt was usually capable of lasting 'x' years or 'x' miles, the waterpump or cambelt tensioner wasn't.

I can remember it reduced to 40,000 or 4 yrs on some of the older Vauxhalls, whereas it was once upon a time 80,000 miles or 8 years. Mainly because of the waterpump and tensioner prematurely wearing out.

Im toy'ing with just getting it done, as said, wouldnt want to snapping on me.
Strange though, how a car could have done 20k or 120k but would be due after 6 years. That just doesnt make sense to me.

Rubber degrades over time dirt dust water hot cold etc so I would just follow the service list and do it at 6yrs or 4yrs like Haynes recommended.
