Re: Rip off?
Completely agree with Mikey.
Any one of these items failing can have the same effect on the engine, as not having the cambelt done at all. Also, the water pump can start leaking over time, so rather than changing the belts this year, then having to change the belts prematurely when the water pump seals fail, it makes sense to get it all done.
Peace of mind is a price well worth paying for.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
