Fiat Panda 2004 1.2 Dynamic Timing Belt Replacement Interval

Hello,

I have Fiat Panda 2005 1.2 Dynamic that is 49 months old with 82000 kilometers. The car is used daily for a 40Km round trip commute (not much stop/start) and about 4 times a year for longer (1200km) round trips.

My dealer says the timing belt needs replacing and it will cost 500 (I am in Madrid), I think that includes auxiliary belt, etc.

I have searched the forums and found various recommendations for the replacement period but the all seem different or not for my engine.

Any ideas of the "official" cost/replacement period?

If the belt fails will it damage the engine?

Many thanks,

Stephen.

I asked late May at my local dealer, I got told it's still 75,000 miles and 5 years for my Panda (I had passed the 3 year mark, and the 38k is on the way)

I will ask again when Squirrile goes in for a Bronze Care service late November.

500 Euros seems a little steep - mine cost 180 on the same car!?

I think on the 1.2 in my 500 it's 72k miles. A bit rubbish that Fiat isn't very consistent.

Re: Fiat Panda 2004 1.2 Dynamic Timing Belt Replacement Interval

I changed mine when it touched 55,000KM and 4 years old. When the mechanic and myself looked at it, th rubbers still looked like brand new and the tensioners? He told me to keep the new ones!

Cost? About RM500 ~ 90Pounds then?
