    Need to get a timing belt done for above car. Finding it hard to find local independant to do it.
    Wondering if it is a big job to attampt myself.

    It's only the 1.6 petrol engine so I assume it's not as big a job as say the 1.9Tdi

    Any help would be appreciated

    Its as big a job regardless of the engine reall

    unless ur competent mechanically u'll save grief in the long run by getting an independant to do it i'd say

    That might explain why my local guys are reluctant to do it....maybe its a work guarantee reason, too much hassle for them....might have to price at stealers...which will be around the €800 mark or more, which is robbery for a 7 year old car!
