Cam belt, pulleys, water pump change

Hi guys, I've had my 147 lusso diesel for a little over 2 months now.
I've started getting a chirping from the timing belt side of the car. I've been to three different garages to diagnose and fix problem. It's booked in for Tuesday costing me 256.18 for new belts, pulleys, water pump, just wanted to know is this a good price?

Also I had a mechanic refuse to do top and bottom arms on the 147 yesterday as he said they're a ******* to get at. Is this tru? And what would be an average price for them?

Hi James,
That sounds like a fair price for those, similar to what I've been quoted to get it done on my new jtd I'm picking up next week.
I didn't have a problem with getting my wishbones done on my old 156, that was Duncan at Alfanet, who probably does it week in week out though!

I think you need to to another garage as the top Arms are not that difficult to replace.
