Default Re Extrnal Drive belts.

Hi All,

You may or may not have read my previous request about External
drive belts.
On my 4cyl CAMRY.

Crank to Power Steering.
Crank to Alternator.AC.

I was in my Toyota Dealer yesterday.

Belts need to be ordered non in stock...Cost 39.00 = US$78.

I asked costs of them fitting.

Time is 1.5 hours at 55.00 per hour.= 82.50 = US$165.
Plus GB VAT @ 17.5%

Total = 97.00 = US$ 194.

Looks like I fitting myself.
No wonder they call this Treasure Island.

Cheers Johnny UK.

Hi yes I agree,
But I would hope to do it in less that 1.5 hours with out all there ramps.

They seem to be totally understaffed.
They could not fit for 3/4 weeks any way.

Its no problem to fit, I have done for maybe 50 years,
But at 71 I am less keen to get under cars lol.

Cheers.
Johnny.
