I dunno, Pretty sure the d5 is all volvo engine,
Depends on the car tbh,a lot of the time the timing belt itself is dirt cheap then when you add in the other belts, water pumps and variators, you are looking at hundreds, iirc my entire kit was about 600 in parts alone and two mechanics for the best part of a day to replace everything
They are when you pass them on the side of the road?
OP what make/model car is it?
Very valid point.
On a serious note I'd imagine you would have some comeback against the garage..
I see, I thought it was just the timing belt alone.
MONEY,MONEY,MONEY must be funny
IN A RICH MANS WORLD.
Volvo s80 d5 saloon
Jasus he paid €800, it was hardly just a belt...
ignore my post so OP, and my apologies.
I've no idea who you are talking about but I'd go back to them and query it.
Could be a faulty replacement in terms of how they fixed all the settings, might be something else entirely.
Best of luck!
This is the argument for why mechanics provide the parts rather than fitting ones you buy for cheaper.
The mechanic is liable for the damage to your engine, he'll attempt to find why the belt snapped - and if it can be traced to a manufacturing fault, he can claim recompense that way.
Either way, expect to get a new engine fitted f.o.c. or get a solicitor involved.
I know but it wouldn't surprise me with some garages to be honest. Well I know now it was a lot more than just the belt.
Depending on the labour costs and the car, a 150e part could easily cost that in labour to replace if its complex tbh
I replaced the entire tb kit and variator on my car recently and it took 12 hours labour for parts that cost 600, now I was fortunate with my mechanic and his charges (and him knowing purists in my chosen car) but even @ 50e an hour thats 600e for labour plus 600e for parts!
complex car tbf. Might not be that bad depending on revs when it cakked it but probably needs valves/guides/seals and....a new belt. Condolences, and it is sickening.
I was gonna buy this to replace by car
But it auction ended as i was on this thread ironically,
No timing belt lol
No electronics, 50 year tax
sold for 2500$ I missed out
I know this might sound strange, but what colour was the car?
Mechanic did indeed supply all parts and orders all the stuff needed to do belt, tensioners waterpump,
And vacuum pump for brakes, unrelated but another 500 plus for that part,
