    Help - VW dealer wants to charge me 400+ for Cam Belt 19th Dec 07 at 7:41 PM
    My local VW dealer sent me a card in the post today to remind me that the cam belt on my January 2004 reg VW Passat Tdi will need replacing soon. What they did not tell me and I only found out by calling them was that it was going to cost me over 400 to have it replaced! As an aside and possibly in consolation they told me that it was unfortunate for me as Passats are expensive for cam belts replacements. This has got me thinking, I live near the channel ports and can get a cheap day return and take it to the VW dealer in Calais. Has anyone had any experience of doing this and, what is cam belt in French?
