Hello and welcome,

Depending on where your located?

Follow this link and give Len a call... he will advise and give you a very competative quote

Remember that if your cam belt tensioner is weaping... it should be changed when the belt is done, it costs about 80 extra

Mention Nobby from Cardiff passed on his number please

realy depends where you go, i know of some place that charge less than 100 for one, they have been caught out not actulay changing them just using a rag to clean them.

normaly 150-200 then sometines as said needs a tensioner at anywhere from 80-120, be wary of places that say you don't need this ever or dont keep them in stock. a new belt is no use whatso ever if the tension goes out of it
