Is it practical/possible to do the cam belt and water pump change on a V8 C5 *without* taking the front off of the car? It looks as if, once the fans and covers are removed, there's at least as much room as on some other cars I've done this type of work on (Subaru Outback belt & pump, Musso pump).
And, regardless of the answer to this, does anybody have the dimensions of the factory brace that is used to hold the cams in position when the belt is off?
