It's a tough one on the jtdm engine, invariably it involves taking the cam belt off, and so a big job.

There are quite a few guides on here if you do a search but very briefly as said above the injection pump needs to come off along with one of the 3 mounting studs for the pump which can be done without removing the belt but is easier to do with the belt off.

Once the belt and pump is off its not a bad job to do but if you are doing it for the first time yourself at home then allow yourself at least a day

This is the job done on an astra , same engine, and no I dont know why he took the bumper off.
