How is the cost of a timing belt replacement broken down?

The majority of the cost for replacing a timing belt is for labour hours. Due to the location of the timing belt within a vehicle’s engine, replacing it can take a number of hours. The remainder of the cost is made up of parts, such as the new timing belt itself.

Garages may also suggest replacing the water pump in your vehicle at the same time as replacing the timing belt, due to the close proximity to one another.

How do I know if I require a new timing belt?

The timing belt is an intrinsic part of your vehicle’s engine and replacing it should be done in line with the guidelines listed in your owners maintenance manual. Failure to replace the timing belt can lead to the timing belt failing, which can cause extensive damage to the pistons and valves of your engine.

If you notice a high-pitched noise when your vehicle’s engine is idle or when you are starting the engine then this could indicate a potential problem with the timing belt. If it takes a number of attempts to start your vehicle’s engine, then this too could indicate a problem. If you believe you have an issue with your timing belt then you should look to have it checked out by a professional as soon as possible.
