Cambelts (again!)

Hello everyone!
First of all congratulations on a great forum !

I know the subject of cambelts/tensioners has been covered at length before, but I could do with some further advice.
My '96 2 litre is due for the cambelt to be changed now. My local Alfa dealer has quoted 412, Alfaid in Maidenhead 496. Both these figures are much higher than I have read previously on the forum posts.
I would do the job myself, except I understand you need the special tools kit & that costs 115, rather a lot for a one off job.
Any suggestions ? Does anyone know another Alfa specialist in the Reading area ?

ok then follow this lot.

timing belt 34.71

balance belt 63.09

tensioner 59.36 all inc vat and prices are from the latest c.d

labour would be around 100. inc vat

so it would be around 257 all done. but it does depend on the labour rate.

Hi JimB,

I recently got the Cambelt, Balancer belt and Tensioners done at Gonnella Brothers in Catford for 220+Vat.

The number is 0181 690 0060, 9/13 Catford Hill.

I spoke to Adrian (AlfaAid) about this, he said he couldn't even get the bits for that price. He also said that Gonnella have been around for donkeys and are OK.

I saw an ad in Autoitalia recently which detailed prices for genuine 155 service parts, including the belts: can't remember the prices but it was cheap! Might be worth getting hold of an issue?

Good luck!
