How much for belts and variator?

Needing replacement belts and thought it wise to replace the variator at the same time. So can anyone advise on how much this might cost? I know the parts cost 'buttons' but what about labour? How many hundreds (thousands?) is it likely to cost?

but obviously a long way away from Hamilton, so may be of little use.

Re: How much for belts and variator?

Thanks kindly to you all for the info Guess I won't be travelling quite so far to get it done otherwise the petrol, food and overnight stops should bring it up to well over 500!! Good to have an idea of costs for comparison though. I think I'll phone the local Fiat dealer and see what shocks await me!!

I had mine done by the main dealer Steve if i get a chance i will go back the reciepts i also replaced the variator at the same time i think it was about 430 , I shall have to replace mine next year , This will be the first time for me to own a car where i have had it long enough to change the belts for a 2nd time in ownership .

Re: How much for belts and variator?

Thanks for that Ricky, helluva lota money! Don't use that as an excuse to get rid of your car though The local Fiat dealership has quoted 353 for the belts so it probably figures as the same price as you paid for the variator as well. Needs must I guess as to ignore the belts is a bit like playing Russian roulette with a much higher price in the end
