Hi Guys

Looking for some clarification here. I have a 52 plate 2.0Td TS2 and it has done 70k so I have been phoning round for a service price. I have phoned 3 garages (1 being my local mazda) and 2 gave me prices for a service including cambelt change and the other claimed that my car is chain driven and so obviously doesn't need a belt change.

Is there anyway (other than taking the engine apart) I can find out for definate if it is belt or chain driven?

Thanks in advance

Kev

I can also confirm it's a belt driven engine too, as I've just had mine done at 75k. Each dealer sets it's own prices for servicing, the more populated the area, the more they charge for labour. Conversely, pick a dealer in the middle of a grassy field, and you can save a fortune. Local dealer in the midlands wanted £680 for service and cambelt, as did others in the Midlands and North West. The one in Dryslwyn in South Wales (HG Bryer and Sons) was absolutely superb and I paid £490. They've been regularly winning the Mazda customer service award in the last few years too. If you're lucky of course, a local dealer might price match. But all as it cost me in reality though was a day off work, and half a tank of diesel £30, and we had a lovely day out in the free courtesy car, sight seeing.

Diesel versions use belt
Gasoline Version use chain

Mazda Leamington quoted me verbally last week, £280. Mine's done 54k miles but is 5 years old. They tell me it is only a miles thing, but with other cars its been miles or time. Any comments please?
p.s. they told me that the £700 figure I had seen would be for the 75k miles service (expensive at about £480) and a cam belt.

I had mine done not long ago at 70,000 I was told it would be £280 but in the end I got them to change the fuel filter aswell and it bumped it up to £300......I was tempted to change the filter myself but it looks a pig of a job so for an extra 20 notes it was worth it.

I can also tell you that your car is belt driven. I had my belt changed at 75k and it cost me including the service £230 which was a real bargain. I had the belt checked by another garage just to make sure they had changed the belt for that price. It came back as A OK, Happy Days.

The garage was in coventry UK. Its called something like RMS or RS 024 76665 355

Is it necessary to replace hydraulic tensioner and all other tensioners and water pump changing timing belt? The car has only 120k km (75k miles) done.

Thanks.

Probably better get the hydraulic tensioner changed as they are known to go. I've just got mine done (89,000 miles - just got the car) and the tensioner had nearly lost all the old causing the belt to be slack. They're pricey though.
