156 1.8 Cambelt change time, advice plz

Hi there, its that time, im gonna get my cambelt done.

i know there are loads of threads on here about it but loads about diff engine sizes etc, ust want to b sure about mine!

Mine is a facelift 2003 1.8 T Spark.

I am getting the cambelt changed, what else is recommended doing at the same time? see some engines have tensioners but some dont, variators? if you could clear this up for me would be most grateful. im not that technically knowledgable!

Also any idea of price? im taking it to Nationwide In Nottingham, family been using them for all cars for years.

Cheers for help in advance, Matt.

(I also need to get the heater sorted buts thats another issue and another day, lol.)

IMO get everything changed - no messing - whilst its all 'apart'. Saves time and money in future - any other way is a false economy.

As to the full details about what your car has/has not - if you go to a garage that doesn't know, I say go elsewhere (Specialist for example) - the specialist I use listed all items seperately and specifically for me along with price for each part and the labour.
