Re: GT V6 CAMBELT - When to change
Agree with the above, 4 years for normal V6 and 3 years for GTA. Both mine were replaced after 5-6 years as cars were bought second hand and I had them replaced as soon as they were in my hands, both are low mileage though.
Will be more expensive than TS, here the Alfa dealer takes the engine out but since labour is cheap its not so bad. I believe its normally done with engine in the car in the UK but just extremely tight space.
New water pump is required along with the belts, bearings and tensioners. GTV water pump has a metal impeller which is more reliable than the standard plastic one and worth the extra if you plan on keeping the car.
