Hello All,

 

I have a P Reg Ford Fiesta - diesel.  The fan belt sounds like it is on it's way out.  Would any one know roughly how much it would cost to be replaced?

 

Many thanks for your help in advance.

 

MM

Hello and welcome to the forums :)

 

At a guess i would estimate £10-£20 for the belt and up to half an hour labour depending on how your garage work it.

 

so possibly about £40?

Cheers Stef,

 

that sounds more reasonable than the £140ish I have been quoted.

How much?! :o :o

 

What does that quote include do you know?

 

Is it just the belt that needs replaced?

I think so.. My BIL took it in today and it was serviced and had  all spark plugs changed but that was paid for today - £190.

 

I will check with BIL tomorrow.

Right well that explains why the price is so high. £140 is a fair price
