182 cambelt predicament



  182
Ok so ive just bought a 182 non cup on 36k knowing the cambelt and dephaser etc havnt been done which i want to get done asap.

iv had a quote of 575 from renault bolton through a friend of a friend, for cambelt kit, aux kit and dephaser but not sure if this included any other parts. (or would he have expected to need other bits... like seals etc?)
Is this a reasonable price as i have no clue to be honest?

Also iv been put onto a mechanic at renault manchester through a friend who has said he will do it for £100 + parts as a foreigner (whether i want just cambelt doing or everything its still £100)
Im unsure about going this route as i obviously wont be getting a reciept to say the work has been carried out unless this is significantly cheaper as i plan on keeping the car but you never know.

What other parts should i be changing whilst im doing cam and aux belts and dephaser? And also how much roughly are all the part likely to be?

Thanks in advance people



On a side note, if i were to book it in with renault manchester, this mechanic doing it as a forienger would be the guy who gets the job anyway as he has done many of these, he knows what he is doing (apparently :/)

Renault manchester salford??

Bought my clio from there. And had the belts done (long story) but was checked after and was spot on.

Can't remember his name though.
