Default good price for timing belt change?

The Dealer wants to charge me 189.00 for a timing belt change on a MY99RS.
Is this a good deal from the dealer?

Including parts? Sounds pretty cheap to me, especially since they will do it right.

sounds like an excellent price.
the belt alone is like 60.00 bux.

you should include the water pump as well.
a water pump parts only is 60.00 bux

crank oil seal should be changed as well, another 5 bux for the seal

crank oil seal always leaks on scoobies, and you have to take the timing belt off to change it, and the water pump is driven off the timing belt, so if it ever goes you would have to take the timing belt off as well to change it.

they shouldnt charge you much more in labor to do it, the crank seal is cake, and the water pump is not much harder..

I always recomend doing the timing belt, water pump and crank oil seal.
Im suprised the dealer didnt, unless they try to hit you with it later.

hope that helps

Mcdade...

The dealer is a buddy of mine, Is the water pump and crank seal a big deal...I guess what i'm asking is that if he's giving me this good price would i be asking to much for the other things or is it all fairly easy. BTW I'm going turbo..stage 2 ludespeed kit, are these items..the pump and crank seal things that i should address now to keep my car alive under the strain of a turbo I've got 68000 miles on it.

Thanks

i was going to say if that's a dealer price that's a price you can't refuse...6 hours labor for a t-belt, hour for the pump, half hour for the seal...not bad.

Yea the pump and seal are cake, at the very least have them change the seal, it takes two seconds to change

the pump, takes less then 30 minutes.
