Had my Delta for just over 3 years and been a great car, its done 54k with once timing belt change at 44k 4 years ago.

I spoke to a Jeep dealer who said they don't see any of these now. He Quoted £799!! includes the water pump he said, I thought it would include another car at that price. normally pay around £300-350 for cambelt on other cars. 

 

He advised it needs doing every 8 years but then looked in the handbook and it shows 4 years for high miles and 5-6 for low mileage use. 

 

Confused on what is really correct it is a diesel 1.6 auto, Taken it to a jeep dealer for the last 2 services they do like to charge you a lot for an older car now. 

 

Any one have any ideas on cost and also who is any good? I am in the Kent area near Bromley. Can any good indi garage do the work or will you need special tools?

Thanks

Any Alfa, Fiat if even Vauxhall specialist can do it, it us a pretty straight forward job, typically costing £300 or so. The bits can be bought from a motor factor for about £120 so the rest is labour.

An engine locking kit helps but that is only £40 off ebay and is not as essential as on other cars, just makes it easier.

£400 at Alfaworkshop as a guide, Inc Vat and pump. £300 should be easily possible as most garages can fix Vauxhalls! But make sure they do that pump.
