    Price for a Cambelt/waterpump change at a Main Dealer ?

    Forum Key Rings
    My 63 plate Diesel Insignia has now hit 86K miles so it's time(ish) for a belt & pump change. My local main dealer is quoting 580 for belts/pulleys & water pump !

    Is this a realistic price or are they after a late Christmas bonus ?

    That's what I thought !

    The most expensive GM kit I could find was 150 inc vat for belts/pulleys & pump and the labour seems to be 2 & 3/4 hours so 580 is taking the ****

    Local VW specialist charges 260 for a belt and water pump change for a Golf, so pretty sure you can get your insignia done for that. I would not touch a main dealer these days, way too expensive.

    580 is high even for main dealer. Feb/March last year I put my insignia in for cambelt kit, water pump & aircon re-gas (cambelt kit was fixed price at 289, aircon was 60 leaving 111 for the water pump. Sounds like they are charging labour for each separately.

    580? That's more like clutch changing money than cambelt money. Cambelt shouldn't be more than 300 quid for the Insignia. They're having a laugh.

    Local local box dealer wanted 440 for cambelt and water pump. I did the job myself and changed everything, including the aux belt tensioner and pulley for less than 200
