    Default CAMBELT question

    Is it hard to change a cambelt & water pump yourself? is it expensive to get done at the garage?

    on a 1.9 CDTI (120)

    Please help

    Expensive at a garage, not too hard to do depending on it experience of DIY auto maintenance

    How hard will depend on skills.

    Its critical that its timed up again correctly

    its not a massively expensive job

    has a labour book time of 2.5 hours I think

    ....and the difference with the 120's over the 150's is that you have to remove the cam belt pulley to get the water pump off of course.

    Nahh - just an extra step that's all.. The rest is the same as the 150's. Done many and really not a problem.
