    Default 3.2 v6 GSi cambelt and water pump

    Got my service and mot due so asked for a price for the cambelt and water pump to be done, £602 from a Vauxhall place
    What do people think of this price ???
    It's local to me and don't want to travel to far

    Wouldn't pay more than £300 for the belt change, so unless the service is also costing £300, they're charging too much. There's no particular need to use a Vx garage for the belt change - the process is very similar across the 2.5, 2.6, 3.0 and 3.2 GM V6's, and some of those engines have been around 18 years, so plenty of garages know how to change the belt.

    The service and mot is £210 and then £20 for brake fulid change that's required for the 6th service
    £602 is just for the cambelt and water pump
    £342 for cambelt and £260 for water pump with labour ...

    apparently you dont need the pump doing because its not driven from the belt, I was told rather than I know.
