    Anyone know a reasonable amount of garage labour hours to check the timing marks on 1.8t aum, not sure how big a job this is. Just to check the new belt was fitted correctly due to fault codes etc P1340. Car in 2mo.

    cheers

    Shouldn't be too much. Quick and easy way is to just remove the timing belt top cover and turn crank over until front crank pulley aligns up with the mark on the lower timing belt cover.

    I would say no more than half an hour. Book time to replace the timing belt is just over 2 hours for reference.

    Is it easy enough to see the belt in order to count the teeth between sprockets...i got a diagram from ross-tech which i can give to the garage.
