    Can someone advise what drive belt(s) are fitted on above, what they drive
    and when they are scheduled for replacement. Cost of changing would also be
    of help.

    Many thanks,

    If not already done in the past, the cambelt (given for 80,000 or 5 years,
    not sure about the mileage). Heavily recommended : the water pump (the old
    may not last with a new belt, due to its tension) and the aux belt (for a
    couple of pounds, it's an investment).

    Good point re water pump, it had not occured to me and as access looks
    awkward, might as well do it when in that area. Having both belts done by
    local garage which I trust for £300.00.
    Many thanks for your thoughts.
    Happy Motoring

    Seems a reasonable price. I had my petrol 406 cambelt done when I bought the
    car because there was no record of it having been done. IIRC it cost me £140
    or so but you're getting extra done. I remember when I had a Xantia asking
    the local Cit. dealers how much a cam belt change would be. Very little
    change from £450 was the answer, local specialist did it for £120.
