Hi All, just been quoted £1800 by Renault London West for a timing belt and water pump change. After just seeing a post where Renault in Leeds charges nearer £500 for the same work, I must be able to get a better deal elsewhere in the London area. Any recommendations and prices?

That's got to be a new record surely!!! Just had the Cambelt/Auxbelt/water pump and coolant change all done for the bargin sum of £470 all in with Fred at BTM Performance near Bham. Superb service as always and he even pointed out my cam timing was off and had been since it left the factory. Shop aound and you'll see prices for circa £500 easily mate, no need to spend a penny more :)

Please, I wouldnt touch Renault West London with a bargepole.... full off a bunch of numpties....
They couldnt even correctly diagnose a steering rack fault, started faffing around with track rod ends and then tried blaming me for having non OEM tyres on the car?!?!?!

Dealers have slashed prices for all renault range, inc timing belt £399 for all models here's the link, someone on cliosport.net rang them today and it includes renaultsport models woohoo.

They're gettin' there but some way to go

Some of the Ren' specialists can do full cambelt and tensioner kit, auxiliary belt and tensioner kit, and water pump all in for under £500, and that's genuine OEM parts!!

Good find budgie. I still wouldn't trust my local stealer to do it though. How much extra they going to charge you to do the coolant and water pump too? £400 is a very good price, especially from the dealer.

just to put a spanner in the works, ive just got mine done using gates belts. Timing belt, aux belt and pulleys and water pump for £350 at my m8's garage. And he said he can do any other for around the same price. Just a bit of info for you all if you need it doing in the future...

Keep this in mind, is your mates garage a backstreet or dealer/specialist?

He isnt a dealer but he mainly specialises in VW. I dont mind about him not being a specialist as i know how good the guy is with my car. Got a years warranty on parts and labour so im not complaning.

My local renault in braintree have literally just done my cambelt, aux belt, lower pulley?, full service and MOT for £740inc.

LUCKILY when they went to do the belts they noticed a major waterpump leak (so get this done guys!) and it was covered under warranty (i have a week left on it!) phew.
