    Can anyone give me a ballpark figure for a cambelt change on my 09 Bolero 2.3, mine is coming up to 5 years old next year,only 8K miles but we are planning more european touring.
    I know all about water pumps to be changed as well, also depends on what type of garage used, anyone had one done in the Norwich area they could recommend.?

    Hi.

    We had our done at Desira (Bury St Edmunds) inc water pump for an all fixed price of £450 inc VAT. However you have to ring them to get the best pricing in our experience else they will charge you book price plus labour at however long it takes. I couldn't get it cheaper anywhere except back street garages with dubious reputations.

    I think Desira have a branch in Norwich.

    £300 would be a fair price.....takes less than 2 hours from pulling on the handbrake

    In May I paid a few pence under £300 for a 2007 2.3 Ducato. This was at a small independent garage where I have all my work done.
    Cambelt kit @£140
    Labour @£100
    VAT £50
    Or thereabouts
