The 172 cambelt change is a real ***** as the front bumper and offside headlight require removing to gain access to the accessory belt tensioner.

The Cambelt replacement itself aint too bad but space is limited, with torn knuckles common place.

Thats why the cost is high due to the labour involved in doing it..

I wouldn´t like to replace one on a driveway mind you. A ramp is pretty much a neccessity.
