    Like the post above I to am not in your part of the would, I would suggest when you get the belt changed also get the tension pulley and the fan belt changed at the same time...

    Good luck the motor-homing.

    Hi 1948

    A bit further afield from you I know, but have a look at Essanjay based in Poole.
    Full mechanical service and cam belt change is just under £500.
    They specialise in motorhome servicing and I can personally recommend their services,
    If you ask they will allow you to overnight outside their premisses.

    have a look though some very recent threads. I had mine done and reccomended someone but a way from you Im afraid. But for 1k..... you could bring it up here, have it done, have a few nights away, a couple of meals out, and still have plenty of change.

    1k my ass, that garage wants reporting to the dick Turpin society.

    An A class has access problems and probably stretches the job another 20 - 30 minuets
