Default Timing Belt Change Recommendation (C4GP)

Guys,

Did anyone change their timing belt set before at other workshops besides C&C? What is the cost?

hello mykchuen,

i cannot answer your question directly, as i don't go to a service-workshop at AMK Autopoint called Thomas and Partner, but i know many forum-members here do, and have very good things to say about him.

he will be able to help you if you give him a call, i'm sure.

mykchuen,

yours is not a chain (i believe, it's a belt - same as mine, and all my C5).

ours need to change, as you have already understood.

i cannot be sure but it sounds as if (if i am inferring from the 'clues' correctly) that the 1.6 Prince engines have a chain, not a belt.

the 2.0 engines definitely have a belt, from my experience.

ok..will check next when i go next servicing....

if its a chain then the service people been trying sell me the package thingy and then said i can save 20% when time for timing belt change at 70k is all BS? Or maybe they dont really know what they were talking abt....just trying push a 'sales' thru.

ok that level of specificity i don't know - it's beyond my expertise.

if you can remember to do so, you check and then update here, if convenient for you :-)
