[Engine] Cost for B9 Cambelt? Does it need also need waterpump?
#1
How much have you paid for a Cambelt change (1.6HDI) - Does it also need a waterpump replaced?

If I remember correctly I paid £220 for a gates kit with water pump fitted.

This was in a non franchised garage in a rural area, it may be more in urban areas or in a franchised or PSA specialist garage.


I think the service interval is 15000 kilometres /12000 miles or ten years whichever is sooner.

I am looking around here in France for someone to do my cambelt. The cars done 78k miles and is ten years old in December so it needs to be done. Citroen want €700 and the local garage want €600 using Citroen parts. The OE cambelt kit is nearly €300 on its own, which is crazy when I can get a Gates kit for €90. Personally I would always change the water pump and tensioner at the same time. No point paying twice if either fail after you have had the cambelt changed. Best quote here so far is €399 without a tensioner which they only change if they think it needs one. I will keep looking!

Why not buy the parts and get someone (that you trust) to fit them? You have a French car in France, must be loads of local garages.

I do these for £275+ vat to forum members, normally £300+ vat to general public .
You would think there would be loads of garages in France that would do this reasonably.

Good luck in france, my experience is that they will happily do the work for you but will not aid you at all if you wish to do something yourself. Jobs for the boys or something like that.

I replaced my cambelt, water pump and tensioner with a gates kit. Took me 4 hours but not in ideal conditions! Not my dayjob lol

It would be cheaper to drive it to UK, have the job done and drive back!!!
