Thumbs Up 1.8 cam belt change

Does anyone have accurate information about which parts are required to do a cambelt change on a 1.8l 156 year 2000?
This engine does not have balancers.
for instance the cam belt is obviously needed
is an idler fitted/needed?
is a spring loaded tensioner fitted/needed?
are both needed?

If anyone has a photo of the internals behind the cover that would be great, also any part numbers for the parts
Thanks in advance

Re: 1.8 cam belt change

Yes and yes....I would (and just have!) fitted both the tensioner and idler, both can cost you a cambelt failure.

Try www.shop4parts.co.uk they have a very good online catalogue with all the prices. If you plan to do it yourself you'll also need the camlocks.

Also, this link is helpful:

...and it's probably worth getting the auxilliary belt changed (and water pump if you're being really particular)
