    1.6 hours to do the pump and 1.4 hours to do the belt IIRC are the correct timings, someone with TIS confirm this? But you cant do the pump without removing the belt in the first place. No wonder they are not getting your custom I can assure you its not a 3 hour job to do the belt and W/P. The timing belt needs to come off to do the W/P so the time to replace the belt and W/P should be the 1.6 hours. BTW that £231 works out a £77 an hour for a VX Garage in Dundee!!!! Jesus!!!!!
