Is the waterpump driven by the cambelt? If so does it include a new pump? Antifreeze?

I was £320(ish) for my Ducato 2.8's cambelt change (and mot) in Jan, so the figure doesn't sound way off to me.

Personally, I would shop around for the entire job, rather than source parts for someone else to fit - if they get the wrong parts sent, its their problem - if you get the wrong parts ordered/sent - its your issue to resolve.

And they will charge you labour for attempting to fit the wrong parts if you've supplied them.
