Timing belt price

Post by Wingnut84 » Tue May 04, 2021 8:49 pm

Hi all.

I've just had a price of £495 to replace the timing belt, water pump and tensioner with OEM parts and was wondering if this sounds about right. The vans a 2011 2.0tdi 140 of that makes a difference and I'm based in Derby in the east Midlands.

Thanks in advance for any replys.

Genuine VW belt kit or a Gates kit is no different apart from the box and the price.
I take it when you asked for a price with OEM parts you meant direct from VW? Gates manufacturer for VW so they are in fact the OEM for this part, you just pay more for the VW box.

I wasn't given an option, they just said they only use oem parts.
I'll have a ring around a few more garages today.
Thanks for the info Doc

There's lots of OEMs, if your getting a VW supplied kit it'll come at a premium over the same parts in a Gates box from a motor factors.

I hope you tried DubUnit in Walton-on-Trent, comes highly recommended for anything Caddy related in the Midlands.
