Re: cam belt and variator change
cheers once again ,no longer am i going to ring various garages that advertise cam belt changes and then proceed to give duff information,i rang ten today,only three mentioned a variator,even had one so called expert ask me if i actually had an alfa !!!!!!!!! three of them said they had done cambelts on alfas for years and never had they come across a variator.when i mentioned about the engine sounding like a diesel on start up for a few seconds due to most likely the variator being worn , they just laughed like i was some kind of inbred!!. rang bls in lincoln and they quote £442 with variator.ITALIAN CAR SERVICES in lincoln do a alfa cam belt change for £235 plus £70 for the variator. was mighty impressed with their knowledge of alfas over the phone so they seem to be the best so far .
