    Presuming you mean cambelt, should be about £300 at a VAG specialist, £450 at a dealer. Make sure they do the belt, tensioner/idler & most importantly the water pump at the same time.

    Should be the same, it's mostly labour with about £120 of parts.
    Drivebelt/cambelt can be the same thing, but there's more than one drivebelt in your car, only one cambelt.

    Only ever heard a cam belt been called either that or a timing belt. If someone asked me for a drivebelt i would give them an alternator belt.
