Ended up costing £250 for parts and work on the head - timing belt gubbins, gaskets, head stretch bolts then
, antifreeze etc etc
I like to think I did the job myself but I didn't I drafted in willing family members 'cos I was clueless, especially during setting the timing up at the end.
Adding labour onto that gets you close to the £500 you got quoted Tigz, but access on the Megane is a lot easier than the Espace
So that's going to add to the labour I think
EDIT - Oh and mines a petrol I don't know if that makes the engine any easier to work on over a derv or not
The Vauxhall Cavalier - one of the safest cars you'll bump into
