    Hi,
    Can anyone recommend someone trustworthy to do a full cam belt kit on our Talbot compass drifter 1993 2.5 diesel (Peugeot J5 Citroen C5) at a reasonable cost preferably?
    Many thanks
    Karen & Steve

    Hi Karen&Steve
    this guy did a lot of work for me when I lived in Manchester . My daughter still uses him still as she lives near them still . Always found them honest and trustworthy and very helpful.

    You could even mention that Tony Massey recommended them (If he still remembers me) won't save you any money though :Laughing::Laughing:

    Hi Tony,

    Thanks very much for your reply - the trustworthy part is more important than the reasonable price for us - we're just not used to paying as I usually do repairs etc myself.

    I have no experience with diesels though, don't have the specialist tools I have also heard it's a pig of a job so don't fancy it as my first attempt :Laughing:!

    Thanks for that - Working full time so could only get over at weekends or use a days holiday so will save as last resort

    How far are you from Glossop?

    We use Andrew Wood on the Chunal road going out of Glossop towards Hayfield.By David Davies Haulage yard.
