Re: 2.0 156 Cambelt Change
You couldn't have written this query at a better time - I had my 2001 2 litre 156 cam belt changed last week, as part of the 60,000 mile service. I didn't want to wait any longer for this to be changed given some of the horror stories on this site. I come from Bristol, but work in Cardiff, and usually have my work done at the Cardiff dealer. HOWEVER, I was getting increasingly frustrated with them, so tried out LC MOTORS in Newport for a change, and they were excellent.
The whole service, including full cambelt/tensioner change, spark plug change, new rear brake pads (to stop embarrassing squealing), fixed airbag warning light, came to £833. I think the cambelt bit on its own was in the region of £430. I'd recommend them wholeheartedly, even if it costs you £4.60 to get over the bridge! You even get a courtesy car!
