    Thanks for that 600ish eek ive seen that they are doing a fixed price £249 for a vectra cambelt change, i gather the pump is expensive then plus labour to fit, do you recomend the pump to be changed at the same time, forgot to say mines a 56 plate

    Not the most technical minded but they do recommend changing the pump along with cambelt as they have the same sort of life span. Sometimes your waterpump can go before your cambelt, it will cost you more if you had the cambelt done and then the waterpump at a later date so I'd say go ahead and get waterpump done too.

    Have you had a ring around some local garages instead of the stealers? Maybe get the parts yourself then just ring around for labour costs which might work out cheaper again.

    didnt think about that wasnt sure that local garages would just do the labour would it be best to get GM parts from dealers or non gm parts, sorry for all the questions

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default

    Water pump and tensioners are best changed at same time. As belt rarely fails on its own. And is usually down to failed water pump or tensioner
