    Smile Timing Belt

    Hi there just bought a y reg astra 1.6 16v at the weekend it is really nice, the guy who i bought it off advised changing the timing belt at 80000 miles (Currently on 75000). Anyone had one done recently and possibly adivse a price or post a link to where i could get some good quality parts for a sensible price. Cheers

    40,000/4yrs is the preferred interval...

    Kit should be £50-£60 ish on Trade Club, do the water pump at the same time, and expect £100+ labour costs to fit at a private garage.
