182 Service what do I need doing?



  M2 / Golf GTI
Ok,

Car was first registered 03/2004.

It now has 24k on it and 10k since last service which will be a year ago on 28th of this month. Now im just wondering as I know the belts haven't been done what I need to get done. This will be the cars 4th service.

Thanks

Jack.
 
Next year the cambelt will need doing as it will be 5 years old. Might want to consider that now if you have the funds.

Tempted to leave the cambelt get it done next year along with a set of cams... I'm guessing this would be ok. Will get the 36k service then aux belt etc. Guessing most garages will be capable of this? Many thanks for the fast replies.

actually just counting up, you're due a cambelt in 5 months at the latest, Auxbelt is overdue IMO so just do cambelt and auxbelt now

^^ As he said. Many on here think the cambelt should be done way before the 5 years is up anyway just to be safe.

Ok thanks. I guess theres no special tools etc only renault have for the cambelt? Going to do the cambelt before the 5 yrs is up but don't have the money right now.

Getting it done on the 1*2 is quite an involved job and takes about 4 hours at the Dealers....It costs a fair bit unfortunately...Especially as there aren't that many specialists near Plymouth.

I have a friend who (owns a garage) does all the work on my car so labour isn't a problem, just don't want to pay out the ass for the parts! Just wondering what prices are..

Personally seeing as the cambelt will be done soon anyway and you have low funds I would just do the aux belt without tensioners (unless they dont sound healthy). The belt is pretty cheap on its own and its not too hard to change yourself as long as your slightly mechanically minded.

Then when you have some dough get the cambelt, aux belt and all tensioners changed.

Went up to see the guy who does all the car on my work, said he has the tool as he has done them before. Said he was doing them before mumfords (local dealer) was. Ideal! That should save me a fair bit, may even have some left over for cams. Talked to him and decided to get the alternator done now then cambelt done early next yr when I have better funds, said may as well do the cams then as it would only be an extra hours labour. Perfect!
