147 1.6 Lusso

147 cambelt

Hi this is my first post following an embarrassing breakdown yesterday in Canterbury had to be rescued by RAC who tell me that they think the cambelt has gone on my 147 1.6 53reg with 43k on the clock - belt has not been changed even tho always serviced by Alfa specialists (not main dealer tho). Anyway, it is now at main dealer in Canterbury awaiting a quote. I see on here that someone else had same problem caused damage to valves etc and main dealer quoted 2500 to repair! The car is only worth about 3k so if get quoted that figure I don't know what to do..... Any guidance welcome in particular if anyone knows of an Alfa specialist in Kent (north Kent ideally) as only recently moved here and not yet found one. Many thanks.

Welcome to the forum! You are probably better of posting this in the 147 156 and GT technical section
