  • [Corsa D 2006-2014] 1.4 Head Gasket

    Hi all. I'm coming to the end of doing a head gasket on a 2007 Corsa D 1.4 and I have 2 possible problems. One problem is that the auxiliary belt tensioner isn't compressed. It got taken off by undoing a mounting bolt which enabled it to expand. The Haynes manual told us that we should have used a small pin to hold it in it's compressed state but we didn't. Now we have to fit this tensioner back so my question is how can we compress it enough to fit it? My next problem is with the cam position disc which sits in front of one of the cams. The special tool that goes round it to hold it in position doesn't hold it firm. The disc has different size cut outs but none relate to the special tool exactly. The half moon special toll holds it in place but there is still movement in the disc. I'm surprised that the disc isn't held in place with a keyway or something similar. Any clues anyone?
