    Just get stuck in and do it. Be careful with the positions of the cam sprockets in relation to the crank. Can get expensive if they're not lined up correctly.

    You are right, it's driven by the cambelt.

    As a suggestion, because there's a lot of work, you might want to consider doing the cambelt too, so you don't have to revisit for another 100k km. All parts are available from the usual suspects.

    Is your car an xu10 engine or xu9?

    Default Mi cam belt

    There used to be lots of posts on this ,but im not sure if anything has been put up ,since the crash ,do you have a workshop manual ,,theres locking pins to be installed to lock the cams ,and belt tensioning has to be done manualy ,and to the correct tension ,do some research and make sure you replace oil seals ect while your in there ,also check the tensioner bearings for wear and noise as if they fail can cause the belt to skip teeth which is a disaster ,turn the grankshaft a coupla turns with a socket before you start it up to make sure ,everthing is lined up properly[well at least not banging into one another ] ,its bin a while since i did mine ,its tight in there but you will get the hang of it ,support the engine on a floor jack remove top and bottom mounts ,jack it up and down depending where you require the space PUGS

    2.0 makes it an xu10. But doing the belt on it is almost the same job!

    You should definetly do the belts and tensioners while your in there! the timing belt is pretty self explanitory when your in there. Getting in there is the fun part! Getting the back allen key bolt off the top of the timing cover is always fun! The cover is still much easier to get off then a single cam 306 1.8!!

    Also draw a map of the way the alternator belt goes round the pulleys coz there a night mare to get the right way!!

    It's one of those not so easy jobs that requires lots of patience. After you remove the RH wheel, inner guard cover and two water hoses, you'll have all the room you need.

    As said, if you like the car, replace the cam belt and tensioners as well.
