if its anything like the old school engines, you would have to put them on at the same time. both gears and chain together

First of all, It has a timing chain not a timing belt. No need to change the timing chain and gears. They will last the life of the engine.

To change a Vauxhall Corsa timing change you need to first remove the rocker cover, the alternator tensioner, heat shield, water pump, engine mount, and crankshaft pulley. Now that you have found the timing change, unscrew the timing chain guides, remove old chain, and replace with new chain.

To change the timing chain on a Toyota motor, you need to first get a new timing chain. From there, take the old one off. You may have to remove things in the engine to do this. Put the new one on, looping it around.

There is no set mileage to change the timing chain. Chains will usually last the life of the engine. The usual symptoms of a chain going bad are that the engine rattles when you first start it (chain flapping around) and lacks power(slack chain causing camshaft timing to drift around unpredictably). Replacing a chain can cost from $500-$700 so just rest easy, and unless you hear it or notice poor performance it is fine.

You do not need to change a timing chain as a general maintenance item, unlike a timing belt. Generally timing chains are only changed on very high-mileage motors if they are being rebuilt or refreshed. In most cases by the time the engine is due for a timing chain change, it could use a rebuild anyway. B. Some cars have timing belts. Timing belts and chains need to be replaced at the first sign of damage. If the chains are not replaced, the engine will come to a grinding halt and suffer severe damage.
