Cambelt change - 2004 156 2.0l JTS Lusso

Afternoon All,

i'm new to the forum, so be gentle. I've had a look through old posts to try to find this info, but have been unsucessful, if you know of a thread already started with this info in it, please feel free to let me know.

i'm due a cambelt change for my 156 2litre JTS Lusso (2004 reg) itll be the 70,000 mile service. basically prices seem to vary quite a lot and before ringing round the garages i was hopeing that somebody on here would be able to give me a comprehensive list of what needs done on this service, some threads are saying that some garages leave off what they would consider vital components to keep the cost down - which i'd like to avoid.

thanks in advance for your help.

Things to get done while the belts are off would include Water pump, Cam sensor and Variator. Any one of them could outlast the belt change, but, if one were to go the belts have to come back off + Each item isn't that expensive on their own. other items should be included in the handbook service schedule.

BTW. it's very expensive to put off the belt change too long (I speak from experience )
