Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've been offerred a Ford Escort van, 1.8 Diesel, V reg, 114,000 miles, cheap.

    It is due a timing belt. How much should I expect to pay to get one and have it fitted?

    I've always done all my own mechanicing but haven't got time to mess with this. Just need the van for work.

    Thought I might get a feel for what people tend to pay.
  2. Expect to pay around £195 for a timing belt, and tensioners, ask at your local Ford Rapidfit for a quote.
