Default Est' cost 100k 2.8 CRD service

OK I know its a biggie so hoping I've got enough in the piggy bank. I live in rural NSW so mechanics are a little thin on the ground here compared to the big smoke but will probably use the local dealer.

Going to replace the timing belt, tensioners, serpentine belt, water pump and any other widgets that go with it.

I'm going to try to take the ARB bar off first which may save me an hour or so in paid labour.

Any ideas of $$ ?

Cheers,
NFHU

I had the timing belt, idlers, tensioner, serp belt etc done when I first got my 06 CRD and from memory that bit cost me about $800-$900 or something like that. It included a coolant flush/change as well.

Recently I had a brake fluid flush/change, tx service which included a full renew of the expensive OEM oil plus complete OEM service kit and some other sundry jobs while it was there and that all cost me somewhere around the $600 mark from memory.

If you add the above and add a few $$ for other oils+filters and any other work that gets done during the 100k service I reckon you'll be seeing somewhere around the $1800-$2000 mark maybe.

Cool. I have budgeted about $2k all up but hope for a little bit cheaper.

Just got back from seeing the dealer. He reckons about $1900. Asked him how long and what was included. Said 5.5 hrs work and belts and a few little bits and pieces. Sounds a bit pricey to me.
I figure they would charge say $120/hr = $660 which make parts $1240 give or take.

That sounds a bit rich for a simple timing belt job. Not that it is a simple job but it just seems a bit too much to charge.
I got my timing belt kit from here...with Graf water pump and a full gasket kit which didn't get used in the end. But better to have it right there then finding out you need it and its not there.

...and in addition I got this one put in at the same time...(a lot of sand /beach driving )

...and while you got everything off the front end you might as well check this out and replace it if needed (might be still good at 100km')

The serpentine belt comes with it this kit.

Labour time sounds about right....and as far as I know you don't need to remove the ARB bar for that job either.
