Which engine have you got? Most here are the CRD's which require specific locking tools. The 2.4 petrol is straight forward with normal timing marks. The 3.3 V6 uses a timing chain.

I have bad news for you so...wait until it starts needing other parts from Chrysler, you'll think that €1500 for a timing belt change is cheap!!

Not exactly sure but we had kit replaced by main dealer on 2007 Voyager 2.8CRD for around €700-€800 late last year.
Dealer was based in Nobber Co Meath.

CRDI is diesel. The 2.4 petrol will be cheaper as there is more space and no specialist tools required.

Other parts will still be as expensive though if buying in Ireland.

That and their poor build quality, dreadful handling, poor crash safety, useless Irish dealers and shocking parts prices.
