Might be worth joining the 407owners as I've found them helpful, the only thing that delays replies is awaiting a mod approving your post. The other site is shoite!

Service book for my Pug states 9 years or 160,000km (?!?!?) so I'm booking in this morning to have it done. Can't take chances with cambelts, cost you more to fix than what you paid!

Ok will sign up.

Let me know how much it costs if you don't mind. The garage that sold me this quoted me 400 but said they'd go halves with me. At the time I was a bit worried they were just ripping me off but now it actually seems like a really good deal.

I paid 100 for the cambelt kit and water pump from GSF on eBay, my local garage is doing the fitting for 150 (probably cash in hand so no VAT to pay), so going halves on it with the garage wasn't so bad.

Most garages have quoted me about 350, including Peugeot who had a special deal on. Could be worth asking them, looks good in your service book too having main dealer stamp

Ok sounds good. Like I said I'm tempted to fit it myself, going to see a friend tonight to ask if he would help as he is much more knowledgeable than I am.

Thanks again for the info!

No worries mate. Looks like about 3-3.5 hours work, you'll need the cam locking tools as well if you do do it. I personally wouldn't! But that's me, I'm the type of guy to use an electric toothbrush in the bath.....lol

yh the book mite say 9years but in the real world!!! you are going to need a water pump they always have a small leak, time wise 1-2h done with water pump aswell very easy to do, you don't need to time/lock the fuel pump just the crank/cam hole for the crank is next to the oil filter on the right at the front (it locks the flywheel) and the cam is the hole in the cam/pulley.

Yeah I only bought the car a couple months back so knew the cambelt was imminent hence booked in now for Monday. 9 years on a cambelt, 5 years is bad enough! The cambelt kit on Fleabay comes with the waterpump as well just to add so you are getting everything you need for the job
