Anything that needs the cambelt disturbed to check / replace so you dont have to do it 2 or 3 times...

So.... Water pump, cambelt idler/s tensioner, coolant, cam-cover gasket.

IMO it's worth doing a good full service at the same time if a service is due or the last service date is unknown.

Re: Cambelt change

Is it hard to change the cambelt yourself on a 1.6 bravo or is it best left to someone who knows what there doing.

Re: Cambelt change

Depends on your skills, workshop available, tools owned, experience, confidence...

I chose to have it done properly & took the 10 Gates warranty offer when I had my Grande done.

Re: Cambelt change

IMHO all belts should be thoroughly checked and replaced if need be. The water pump system should also be carefully looked at - I've had mine replaced a few months ago as it was causing engine coolant leaks.
