V6 CAmbelt change

Ok some will know I had a rear end knock in the alfa, However I received the cheque for the repairs today. Which leaves me with some spare cash to have the cam belt changed.

I wouldn't be thinking of replacing it but, I have a noisy tensioner on the cam belt when its cold, it quietens down once warm.

The belt, tensioners and water pump on my V6 were done 30000 miles ago at 132000, so this will be its 3rd belt, but from what I've read on here the noisy tensioner could be a ticking time bomb.

So can anyone recomend somewhere cheap to have the cambelt/tensioner replaced.

Anyone with good experiences of somewhere in the southeast, I don't mind traveling, but I don't want to spend 600 +

UNDERSTEER is when you hit the wall with the front of the car
OVERSTEER is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car
HORSEPOWER is how fast you hit the wall
TORQUE is how far you take the wall with you
