personally id just go to repco or aussie auto at least you can take it back if you have a problem

well if your drive belt is looking a bit worn you may as well change that while you have the old one off , itll save doing it at a later date , dont forget to make a mud map of the belt position

also have a look at this post , you have to remove a little pulley down bottom right hand side to get a bolt out , theres a pic

always use Holden coolant 50/50 with distilled water and it pays to take radiator out and turn it upside down and flush with hose. cover any auto gear box oil lines and holes when you do.
