I'm also getting my cambelt and pulleys changed for 198 inc and having my drive belt and tensioner changed - another 60 for the parts but no additional labour.

Total so far is 1113. I'm collecting it on Friday morning, hopefully with no additional surprises. I'll try and take some photos of the DMF.
Collected the car on Friday - Total cost was 1192 - it went up slighty because I followed the advice in other threads and had a new water pump too.

HOWEVER, the drive belt is making a loud, sqeaky, rattling noise. It seems that the garage replaced the 'manual' tensioner and not the 'automatic' one.
They've agreed to fit the 2nd tensioner FoC but I've obviously got to pay for the parts.
Anyone know how much I should be paying for one?

I should point out that the clutch/gearbox feel like new - smooth, light and precise. The whole clutch/DMF affair was 855 which is really good compared to the other quotes I had.

I paid £118 for my auto tensioner from alternative autos.
