Any mechanic could do it--its actually only about 1.5-2 hours work.

The price of 560 is a for diesel.Petrol one is a lot cheaper because you dont replace the water pump and the labour time is a lot shorter.

The price for fitting the Petrol belts is approx €300.00 fitted incl VAT and slightly more if it needs all the pulleys/tensioners(see previous post--you dont know until you inspect them after removing them)
Id budget for 300-400 for a main dealer fitted price.

I've been quoted €600-€700 to do this job by several main dealers. Mine is a 2.0L petrol 2002 Santa Fe.

Am I being ripped off here or is €300-€400 a reasonable price to expect to pay?

Hellrazer did u say u were working in a main Hyundai dealership? If so would you tell me where so I can get this job done reasonably.

Thanks.

dug this one up instead of starting a new one.

just had the wife's santa fe 07 2.2d serviced and timing belt done,

€280 for the service and €550 for the timing belt, to me it seems like a ridiculous price, her self organized and paid for it, but there was a cross wires in what she was quoted in favour of the garage.

what would be a normal price for such work...?
heading back to garage in next day or so to question price, and would like some info to back up my case,

Seems about right for engine of that size and the work and parts involved.

Get a list of all the parts used and go to your factors and price them see how much they are if you want.

Best advice is contact the main dealer immediately if you are worried about the timing belt. They will tell you what mileage it needs to be done by also exactly how much it will cost and how long it will take to do. If you try to cut corners by going to a back street garage for a timing belt job you would be only fooling yourself because many of these places will use a bogus parts and don’t give the back up guarantee that a main dealer would give. Golden Rule. Timing Belt = Main dealer.

I've read some gibberish on here but that slots nicely into the top 5 ridiculous things I recon!
