Timing belt renewal cost
My Laguna II Dci is due a new timing belt and I was able to source a local garage run by a couple of mature experienced mechanics. I asked if they would mind if I bought the parts - they had no problem with that but suggested I get a timing belt kit, new water pump, new auxillary belt and change the anti-freeze. I was quoted £60 for labour and I was able to source the parts from my local friendly motor factor for £105. The total cost will be £165. I think that is fairly reasonable considering the price that a Renault dealer is likely to charge.
