they are a sweet engine, just keep an eye on the vvt solenoids, the metal mesh can block up and stop them working - easy to remove, one bolt and they pull out.
funny you should say that vocky i bought the car with p0013 cam phaser malfunction :)
had a mess today after replacing the high beam bulbs in efforts to get the afl error away what a pain found the trick way to do it lol

the inlet one is 13ohm

ive already ordered 2 new solenoids picked up new wiper blades 5l of oil a new filter, gearbox oil , 50/50 mix long life coolant

next thing is to get the headlamp error gone, by replacing the bulbs ive now got the side illumination when turning the wheel left or right but no main beam.
ive managed to get the b1325 to clear and stay off but now its just the b0985

also sprockets have a locating pin, so only go in one position.

The a20nft chain kit is quite cheap because it does not come with the cam sprockets

B0985 - https://workshop-manuals.com/vauxha..._procedures/miscellaneous/dtc_b0984_or_b0985/
https://workshop-manuals.com/vauxhall/astra-j/body_systems/lighting/diagnostic_information_and_procedures/miscellaneous/dtc_b0984_or_b0985/

Circuit/System Testing
1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the appropriate headlamp assembly.
2. Test for less than 5 Ω between the ground circuit terminal 1, 8 and ground.
⇒ If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.
3. Ignition ON, connect a test lamp between the ignition circuit terminal 6 and ground. The test lamp should illuminate.
⇒ If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the ignition circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance.
4. If all circuits test normal, replace the appropriate headlamp assembly. Verify that the DTC do not reset.
⇒ If the DTC resets, replace the K28 Headlamp Leveling Control Module.
