    Just bought an N reg 306 D Turbo with 85K on the clock but it hasn't has a
    cambelt change. AT what interval should it be changed and what sort of
    price should I expect to pay?

    From memory i think Peugeot say 70k...

    Get it done now if its never been done, obviously a main dealer will be
    expensive for this, go to your local independant garage, they're not that

    Get it done as a matter of urgency and get the coolant pump done at the same
    time. My coolant pump failed at about 81k miles (N reg 306 DTurbo) and I was
    lucky enough for it not to take the cambelt and the rest of the engine with
    it. When I had them changed 11 months ago it cost me £175.21 from a decent
    independent garage. Parts were £61 +VAT and Labour was £88 + VAT. I'm told
    it can be a pig of a job to do because there is so little room to work in.

    jobs pretty easy but dealers hourly rate is what clocks up the price,use
    genuine parts and independant garage if possible

    Thanks for the replies folks. Getting it done with genuine parts at a local
    independant peugeot garage in Norwich for £94inc. Also been recommendend by
    a friend that I get the alternater belt done at the same time so shall ask
    them to do that too.
