Cambelt Change

Recommended Posts

I've just had a price for a cambelt change on my 2.0 D4D. £250 That's for the full kit, fitted. Does that sound like a good price ?

That doesn't sound unreasonable to me at work we charge around that depending on the car.

Just had a quote for my old Golf and that was only £100 but it is an old car

Hi

That sounds about right, Benfield Toyota in Leeds, quoted me £260.00 for my 2.o diesel sr

with 'larger' jobs like cambelt changes the dealers rediculous labour charges really kill you. i would suggest getting the kit from dealer and having it fitted by a reputable independant garage/jap specialist. you'll probably cut your labour bill by 1/3

I think that is pretty reasonable. If they are using genuine parts then they'll cost £80minimum for you to purchase

Maybe it's the area I live having many good independant garages competing with each other but if the timing belt kit from the dealer costs £80 then around here the labour to do the job is probably another £90 so £170 all in. and i don't think that toyota's own technicians are £90 better than local guys who have probably worked for toyota in the past? maybe i'm wrong but thats my gut feeling :)

Hey Guys,

I'm off tomorrow for my car service. I would like to know whether my car has a timing belt or cam belt? I also don't know whether it needs replacing .... its a 53 plate hence over the 6 years but has only done 33,000 miles..... any ideas?

if it's petrol engine or the 1.4 d4d diesel then you have timing chain which doesn't need changing.

if it's 2.0d4d diesel then you have timing belt which requires change every 5 years or 60,000 which ever is sooner (please double check that though)
