    I have just had my Fiat Cam Belt changed by Mark (ex TBTurbo foreman) at Unit 45, Lune Business Park, Lancaster, LA1 5FT (www.candmauto.co.uk to look, 01524843721 or email info@candmauto.co.uk)

    His 'standard charge for all Fiat motorhomes is £199.

    He has a secure and patrolled yard with two electric hook ups and a water tap. A courtesy car is available on first come first served basis.

    Mark removed, cleaned and lubricated the starter motor and adjusted the clutch for me as well as fitting the complete cam belt kit.

    The total bill was still only £199!

    The motorhome seems to run much better and I can now relax without worrying about the cam belt for the next five years.

    I cannot speak too highly of this firm and I hope we keep Mark in business until I need him next.

    £199 is a very, very reasonable cost for belt replacement.
    even more so on your A class with limited access.

    i did mine last year, Fiat 2.8ltr TDi, and the belt/pulley kit was £80 trade price.

    not a difficult job but a little time consuming when doing it on the ground off a jack/axle stand.

    next one to do is my Camry.....V6 twincam and very little access. :Eeek::Sad:

    I think that's a brilliant price. Just had mine done £230.00, Gates belt and pulleys and I thought I'd got a good deal.

    I had one done on a Kia Sedona and it cost £800+.....:whatthe::Eeek: Next time it would be the Kia dealers as they have a fixed price...sometimes it pays to use the stealer.

    My quote was £600+ at a main dealer.

    Almost worth driving to Lancaster, especially with a holiday too.
