    A quick question for you knowledgable lot.

    Does the 2011 Rapido (Fiat 2.3L 130) have a Cam Belt / Timing Chain and if so when does it need replacing?

    Rude question I know, but how much should I budget for the replacement?

    Local small garage to me run by Russians charges £80 labour plus parts ( which they are happy to either supply or fit what you supply )

    1.. 2.3 Will be belt.
    2.. Fiat state 5 years as you would never reach the mileage first in a motorhome.
    3.. Russian £80 will be A LOT more once you find an English garage.. x 2 or 3 at best..
