Anyone know roughly how much I should be paying for a timing belt replacement on a vivaro 1.9cdti 2006, with water pump etc as well. Going to start ringing round soon and just dont want to get ripped off haha.

    At Vauxhall ie Stoneacre Genuine Vauxhall parts £499 or £399 Approved parts.

    If its lasted this long its a good vehicle worth the cost to replace.
    Google, Vauxhall fixed price repairs
    Then look at dealers around where you live.
    Find the best price and get local dealer to match.

    Sorry, I can't help with that particular car, but what I would suggest is using a trustworthy local indy rather than a main dealer or one of the big chains.  Replacing the timing belt & water pump is one of those jobs where the parts aren't particularly pricey, it's the labour that costs.  And the labour costs charged by a small independent mechanic are often a fraction of what the big boys will charge.
    If you don't already use/know a trusted local guy (or gal!) can you ask around neighbours or ask for recommendations on your local community Facebook page?
    Not sure if this helps to give a guide price, but over the years my local mechanic has charged roughly £250 - £350 for a Peugeot 306 diesel, Vauxhall Zarifa 1.6 petrol and Renault Clio 1.2 petrol.
