The price of cambelt repair across the UK
[table id=5 /]
(The prices above are indicative of changing a cambelt as well as repairing the part.)
As demonstrated above, the two most expensive cities in the UK for cambelt repair and replacement are both in Scotland as Edinburgh and Glasgow top the chart.
This goes against a trend which is prevalent in our other data reports, showing the north to be less expensive than the south when it comes to the average price of car maintenance.
A notible point is the difference in price between Liverpool and Manchester. Separated by 40 miles, the two cities are hardly far apart, yet a price difference of £40 exists.
If you live in Manchester, you can get quotes from local mechanics here.
However, if you would like to see how quotes compare in Liverpool, you can get estimates from Merseyside mechanics by clicking here. Maybe it would be worth the journey! Simply scroll down the page and click on any of the garages, once there, click ‘Get Quote’ and sit back and wait.
The cost of cambelt repair and replacement by brand
[table id=6 /]
Our data shows that premium car brands have the highest repair and replacement costs associated with this particular service type.
One potential reason for such a large disparity, is that the design of a BMW may conceal the cambelt further inside the engine itself, meaning more time will need to be invested in labour.
[table id=7 /]
As is consistent with research on other key service types, Fiat has the lowest repair or replacement costs.
Our most recent report on the average prices on clutch replacement demonstrates this point.
The reason for the low cost is likely to be due to the price of the part itself as well as easier access during a repair, resulting in lower labour costs.
Keep in mind that the figures highlighted in this report are averages and do not represent the price which you should pay for a specific repair in a certain city or for a specific car.
