Re: 2004 2.0 petrol timing belt change

Hi,

There are many references in the forum regarding the changing of the cambelt. The original recommendation from Fiat was 6 years or 72,000 miles but this seems to have changed to 5 years and 60,000 miles. I was quoted from 800 (Corby Rockingham Cars) to 1,200 (Desira, Southgate London) This was without the water pump and belts which everybody recommends should be done at the same time as failure of the water pump/belts can take the timing belt out. I had mine done privately including full service for 450.00. I know that this was a very good price as the mechanic spent much longer on it then he anticipated so 450.00 without a service may have been closer to the correct price.

Hope this helps.

Lou
