    How easy was the pulley to fit? No timing belt issues with removing and refitting the pulley?

    No was scary though removing the pully then seeing the cam belt but the cam belt pully has a notch so won't twist just don't touch it lol.. and yeah took 20 mins..

    Believe it or not 40nm but 110° angle tighten.

    well so much for me loving the car after driving it for the few weeks before Christmas..

    I've fitted new Kenwood speakers in the doors now to help with the journeys did this on NYE and since then its been parked up in the corner and not moved.. so haven't even had the chance to drive it and see what the speakers make.

    well I suppose 12 years 8 months is good for the stock battery to last if that's what it is went to start it this morning and went to then just clicked checked the battery and it seams like it will be that but well see later on.. just hope this isnt the start of problems to come.
