05 1.4 Cambelt or camchain? - ChicksFan
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.
Thank you.
Ron
