      I'm not nervous in the least. I've done this sort of work before on other vehicles. The part I'm concerned about is having a decent manual for this and future maintenance. The info provided by Aveo5_boy is very helpful and much appreciated. I've never been able to find a Haynes manual. I don't believe one exists. The chevy/daewoo factory service manual costs about as much as the car. As far as tools go, I've always used the standard torque wrench. I've never had to use a Angular Torque Gage before.

      I will probably do the job sometime within the next month. I need to locate parts and special tools first. I also need to fix a busted floor jack. When I do the job, I will defiantly take pictures and post them here.
      It's the Chilton Free Library that you can get online from your cities public library.....just a library card# will give you access to the info online for free.

      My dealer wants $1,000 to do the job. I've done this type of work before on other vehicles so I think I can get r done with the right manual. Also, my dealer mentioned there are belt guides that may need to be replaced. Not sure what they look like or if it really may need to be replaced. The dealer may just be looking for more money.
      How many miles are on your '09?

      My car has 90,000 miles. The owners manual says to replace the timing belt at 100,000 miles.

      If I were you I'd wait until it hits 100K. The belt is supposed to last that long.

      However, at that point I'd change everything that's in that area: water pump, tensioners, etc. It's a big (and expensive) job, and I wouldn't attempt doing it myself.

      Agreed. the 09+ aren't the ticking time bombs the first gens were.

      The 09+ don't run the water pump off the timing belt unlike the first gens, but off the serpentine belt instead. This means it can be changed independently of a timing belt job.

      However, changing it still requires the motor mount to be taken off, which will be off when the timing belt is replaced anyway. This makes it a "may as well change it since it's convenient" type of item, unlike the potential disaster on the older models if it's pulley broke
