2003 legacy timing belt recommendation

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Needing my timing belt done - my water pump has been making a hell of a noise for a couple of years so might as well get all of it done.

Heard Alan at K G McLeod in Waverley is the guy - round $1200 sound right?
Cheers.

$1200 is alright for down those ways. Make sure they're using OEM parts and not cheaper alternatives though

Hey @sjase,

 

Not sure if you've sorted this out yet but if not my advice would be to get a quote from them for sure.

Alan won't actually be doing the work as he's on the Auto Electrical side of things but their mechanics are still good and they will use genuine parts too. 

 

But yeah, definitely get a quote.

I got quite severely shafted by them when they did my cambelt.

I didn't even consider getting a quote as they had always done my work.

Even though the bill included a set of rear pads and 1 rear wheel bearing it came to $2400. That one hurt haha

 

Anyway, good luck!

Had a quote from them for 1600 + GST...Southern court gave me quote for 1200 +GST...then happen chance went to Discount tyres to get my wheel balanced - they quoted 990 + GST for Subaru parts or 800 + GST for Gates kit...
Read up on the Gates kit - apparently were good until 2016 when they started replacing Japanese parts with Chinese...
Apparently the Aisin kit TKF-010 is the one with all japanese parts - haven't been able to find any in NZ - anyone know? 
Cheers
