    Cambelt and 40k service

    Picking my Astra SRi up at the weekend, just been calling around for some quotes for a cambelt change and service.

    Been coming out at around £430 :shock:

    Service roughl £240 including parts labour and VAT, the other £190 was for the cambelt change all inclusive as well. Knew it was going to be expensive, but is £430 a reasonable price? All from main Vauxhall dealers nearby.

    Added £400 before I have even got the car yet :roll:

    Just make sure they are using the full cambelt kit mate if it's the 1.8L... Not sure on prices but £400 or so sounds reasonable to me for the service at the same time....
    It's EXCELLENT insurance to change the belt as the rollers are known to fail (jam up from memory) and cause the belt to rip off and the engine = dead... Which is one hell of a lot more than £430 to fix!
    Ring around a few dealers and just make sure they are using the full cambelt kit

    I have heard you need your cam belts done at 40k. My car is a 1.8 and only has nearly 29k on it, so I think I should be ok til then .
