159 2.4 JTDM Service
I have a 2007 159 2.4, when I bought it it had 28k on the clock and was just serviced, 3 months "late" from it's year schedule.
Now 18 months later I have done almost 46k and a service is due (I am going by the car computer and not the "year" service) so it is it's 4th service.
Now the dealer wants £550 (inc) for the service to replace the aux belt!
If I go to MotorMech they will do a service for £190 + VAT but I assume that wont include the belt or brake fluid.
So first question does the belt ACTUALLY need replacing.
Next issues is the dredded cam belt replacement which should be done at 90k OR 5 Years.
It's the 5 year bit that is causing me concern, the car is 4 years 9 months old so even though it's the 4th service should I get the belt/pump done or can I leave it till the 5th service in 18k more miles? I dont really intend the keep the car past 6 years but I dont want to cause myself grief in the meanwhile.
