Timing Belt change in Glasgow/West Coast

My car is currently 6 yrs old and has done 51k miles. I bought it in January this yr and although it has an extensive service history I'm unsure as to whether the timing belt has been done.

Anyway, I called a mechanic I have used before (app. used to work for Alfa) and he quoted £620 for timing belt, balance belt, tensioners and variator? Does that sound about right?

Or does anyone know of a decent indie in the Glasgow / West Coast of Scotland area that's good?

Cheers

Hi there,

Prices seem to vary but that sounds chunky to me. I use a garage in Kirkintilloch called Semtech (776 1919). I have a GTV V6 and they have done lots for me; good prices too. Maybe worth a try.

Re: Timing Belt change in Glasgow/West Coast

Hi mate,

The other place you could try is the shawlands motor company, its a guy called brian that runs it and he specialises in Alfas. he did a lot of work on my 75 TS and now I am taking my 97 Spider to him.

Number is 636 1928

Cheers,
David
