    Default 2.2 direct timing chain - cost at specialist?

    Sorry for starting yet another timing chain thread

    Local Vauxhall specialist has quoted me £490 to supply & fit a timing chain kit for my 04 Signum (2.2 direct engine).

    Reasonable or rip-off?

    Update... price from local stealers = £480. So much for the local specialist offering "the best service possible at a fraction of the cost of your main car dealer".

    Question - is the timing chain kit a simple enough job that a local garage could safely do the job?

    If they are competent then yes, simple enough as long as they use gen GM parts with new NET spec tensioner. All the timing markings come on chain itself so its really a case of just lining them up.

    I was quoted approx £550, but Vx paid 70% of the bill because the tensioner failed at low mileage, leaving me something like £160 to pay.
