    The timing belt kit and its fitting is the expensive bit......parts budget around £120 which should include a water pump. Fitting time say 3 hours and this would be an aftermarket belt kit by Gates or similar.
    The driveshaft (CV joint replacement by the sound of it) - an exchange driveshaft would be quicker time wise and say 2 hours comfortably for this.
    Get a quote from an independent garage who hopefully specialise in French vehicles and take it from there, I'd say.

    Get a quote from a local garage that comes recommended Alex....certainly not a main dealer! Sorry I can't be more specific than that but I cant see any garage working for less than £45 per hour - vat extra.

    I bought cam belt kits and water pumps for my car (Focus mark 2 1.6 tdci) and the squaws motor (Focus mark 2 1.6S) earlier this year.
    Both sets (cam belt kit and water pump) were less than £90 from a very good online spares website:

    www.carparts4less.co.uk

    The website lets you input your registration number and finds the right parts for your car. I was impressed with the prices, quality and speed of delivery. The cam belts were INA which are German and fitted on brand new VW's and Audis. The website does sell a cam belt kit by Dayco which is a bit cheaper but I don't know anything about Dayco belts.

    They also sell Contitech belts which are made by Continental tyres (also German and good kit). The water pumps were Circoli which are a perfectly good aftermarket spare to use.

    I paid a professional mechanic friend of mine to fit the cam belt kits/water pumps to both cars (a very useful friend to have who is most partial to his palm being crossed with coin of the realm, particularly so since the CSA caught up with him).

    I cannot stress how important it is to have the water pump replaced whilst you are having the cam belt changed. The water pump generally runs off the cam belt on most modern cars and for the sake of thirty or forty quids worth of water pump it would be a false economy not to have it done. I have known a guy who thought he was being smart skimping by not having the water pump done and three months later he was paying all that labour charge a second time to have a new water pump.

    Dayco and Contitech are both good makes so no problems there.....always good to put a new auxiliary belt on too....I've known the odd occasion where the aux belt had shredded and the cords had got into the timing belt cover - whipping that off :eek:
