    Default Had Manifold Changed Today (1.9 CDTi)

    Had manifold changed yesterday by independent garage, it was the first one that they have done.

    Manifold cost £179
    Manifold Gasket cost £13
    Timing Belt Cost £35

    The guys took over 12 hours to dismantle the car engine bay to get out .... the garage charged me 5 hours labour at £42/hr

    Total Cost (inc VAT) = £513

    Was very pleased with the Job.

    I would not trust Vx, dealer or good will to do this Job

    I hope it drives better and that he put everything back in the right place

    Yeah - the guy did the rollers and other stuff.

    I didn't dare take my car to Vauxhall for them to try it .... don't trust them.

    I think I may have lost the foam/card bit from under my plastic engine cover ... should I be worried about this?

    Thanks
