    Is200 cambelt advice please

    Just a quick update so my local mechanic has quoted me 325.00 to replace the belt I'm just in the frame of mind to leave it now as I only do 2500 miles a year the car is not a daily driver but I do want to ask the question why do manufacturers use belts and not chains as this kind of maintenance is very expensive not happy

    Is200 cambelt advice please

    Going to bite the bullet and get it done my mechnic at my local garage asked me if the water pump was driven off the cam belt I looked and I said I don' think so. So it' just the belt and tensioners could have done without the expense but I don' want my car to die I'll wait back to hear from him thank you for your messages on this everyone

    aero alloys

    That's good to know eddiea1 definitely no cracks I'm careful driving the roads are terrible round here I have to swerve about to avoid pot holes im only considering getting rid as I prefer the smoother ride from the 17s I may keep them yet but good to know they can be fixed if they do ever get damaged

    aero alloys

    Hi everyone been a while since I was last on. I was wondering if anyone knows how much my is200 aero alloys are worth? Please don't turn this into a selling thread. The quickest way to find out how much things are worth is to look at the various selling sites on the internet.

    Thanks again everyone for all the advice. So as I said my friend is doing my ball joint for me only reason he can't do bearing is has no press so leaving it till end of next month but for now ill just concentrate on ball joint.reading Dave s post would possibly consider driving out that way and seeing him about it.
