    Default 1.9TDCI 150 timing belt

    following some screeching noise and increasing temp it apears that the timing belt is u/s and the idler pully is in many bits.

    only done 53k. I'm also informed that I've used up eight and a half of my nine lives as there does not seem to be any damage to the engine itself.

    anyone have an idea as to about how much the bill will be please?

    I'd like to arrange for the surgeon to remove the required number of limbs so that I can pay.
