Normally, the one that replaces the cambelt puts a sticker on the beltcover, so anyone can see it has been done at a specific km/miles. Any selfrespecting mechanic anyway.
If you're not sure, find someone who can do it for you and don't take any chances. It's not that hard a job with the petrol's anyway.
good luck and enjoy the car.

New timing belt fitted 2000 miles ago by garage after cambelt had snaped causing damage to engine. garage fixed engine and cambelt. auxillary was not replaced and shredded causing damage to new cambelt...


NO.a garage doesnt even have to ask you what "extras"you want(aux belt)although if they asked you would you have agreed as "most garages are a ripoff trying to fit items that are not required...."the majority are not cowboys but get tarred with the same brush.

Volvo s40 late 2003 105000km. Extra service price


Hi,you should change cambelt pully(there is a bearing inside pully before it worn out completely,it will cause high friction and heat to burn out your bell and rattling noise).buy cambelt pully from the dealer then take it to the garage ask them to put it in for you (labor about 30.00 dollars)...the rest is ok to wait until 150.000 miles.
good luck!!!!!!!!!!!
