please send diagram of astra 1.6 timing belt installation
It has a timing Belt.
Timing belt changing is not part of routine maintenance for a vehicle, including an Astra GSI Turbo. A timing belt is to be left alone unless a problem arises with the timing in the engine.
If the timing belt on a 1.6 Astra breaks, it can damage the engine. It is more likely to damage the engine if it is a timing chain, though. A timing chain is made of metal and a timing belt is made of a heavy duty rubber.
