Default Timing Belt Change Recommendation (C4GP)

Hi,
I am new to this forum, but have been driving C4 Grand for 3 years, mileage around 33k km only. I have serviced my car about 6 or 7 times already, and C&C keeps recommending me to replace my timing belt.

Is it too early for replacement? Can I do manual inspection on the timing belt? How?

Thanks!

Usual CnC is 70k km replace timing belt. Is your car second hand? If so, maybe they know your mileage record got prob

hi all just sharing ...
CnC just quoted me $1300 for timing belt replacement + pump. They also said change at 70K or 3years. Earlier in the post someone confirm C4GP is chain not belt ... is this core

I also feedback the gear shifting felt different. Later they called me said need to change the clutch ... $1800 She claim it wear and tear so not under warranty, but sounds like change whole gear box?

Car is 3.3yrs 80,000Km ... the major service already $930. Ouch!

Anyone ... pls advise outside quotes ...
  • Timing Belt + pump replacement $?
  • Clutch replacement $?

Cheers

Yours is the diesel eHDI, with the semi auto gearbox.

Is timing belt, not chain (chain is for the petrol THP).

Micheal or Thomas' workshop can do the timing belt and water pump for $500 only. Original parts.

As for clutch wear, it is normal for wear and tear at your mileage. Can be done for half the CnC quote, also at Thomas' or Mike's workshop.
