Having just got the bad News that one of our cars cam belt has gone and has caused 1600 worth of damage (it's a renault scenic y reg), we are now down to one car, a 2 litre passat (02 reg). Can anyone tell me how often this car's cam belt needs changing? It was done Nov 2007 along with the water pump. How long till it needs it doing again? It has done 25k between the cam belt change and now.

Give it another 25 bud, but you can leave it up to 60 without worry.

Will do but in the meantime I'm gonna ask him what he would quote for a new engine-if he quotes less than 1600 then I know he's a wide boy.

Anything is better thn 1600-was considering scrapping the renault but with the scrappage allowance scheme in full swing can't imagine getting anything for it without buying a new car.

Depending on the damage you may get away with just fitting a 2nd hand head rather than swapping the whole motor think

I got the low down on what needs doing:-

cambelt kit 100
water pump 65
antifreeze 10
camshaft pulleys 170
head skim(?) 200
bolts and gaskets 65 total parts 610

labour 15 hours

Is this reasonable for a snapped cam belt with 3 out of 4 valves gone?
