    Default Recommendations for Cambelt change Portsmouth area?

    Hello all,

    Just wondered if anybody down South has any recommendations for a mobile mech/garage for a cambelt change.

    The Veccie has done 112k and despite good history I cannot find any information as to the belt being changed. I did mention this to the dealer before picking the car up, but they aren't be overly helpful. Still dragging their heels over changing the knackered thermostat (only had the car a week).

    Anybody also know the cost of a belt kit and waterpump through Trade Club?

    Cheers

    works out to about £120-£130 all in, dont forget you'll need some new coolant too.
    Plasma's Tech2 services are now partially open and able to provide services

    I work at Southern Tyres in Emsworth (near the train station) on Fridays and Saturdays and have done quite a few.

    The other guys that work there are all trained and careful with customers cars too.

    I have suggested to other people to buy genuine parts then get a garage to fit them.

    Books at about 2 hours from memory.

    not sure if this includes the parts? and you have to be registered with them.

    edit that looks like the standard masterfit service, if your a member fo the service club i belive you get further discounts,

    Thanks gents for the suggestions, think some calls to different places tomorrow is in order. Including trading standards if the dealership doesn't get back to me about the thermostat!!
