My niece has a 2005 Vauxhall Tigra 1.4 which has done 35,000 miles. She asked me today if it was a big job to change the cambelt. A friend of hers has suggested it may be due for renewal.
I have changed cambelts several times on Novas and Corsas and these fell due at every 4 years or 36,000 miles (40,000 on later ones).
However I am aware that Vauxhall switched to camchains on some Corsa engines and wonder if this extended to the 2005 1.4 engined Tigra. Before I discuss doing the job for my niece does anyone here know whether her car will be chain cam or belt please.
She lives quite a way from me so it is quite a trek to look under the bonnet of her car, and she wouldn't know.
MINI has revised the Countryman with slight tweaks to the exterior styling and improved engines for better fuel economy. The revised car is priced from £16,990 and will be available to order from June.
