1.4tdi 132000 miles Cambelt Never replaced!?

Post by CGreen98 » Mon Jul 31, 2017 11:07 pm

Hi Again,
So we went to have a look at a 2008/58 Polo 1.4tdi Dune today with 132,000 miles on it... looking through the service book it has never had the timing belt replaced, the current owner said he hadn't done it and it's not in the book!....

Hes asking quite a reasonable price for it about £300 off what it's valued at. How much should I expect to pay for a timing belt replacement? It also has a few little issues here and there such as the AC needs to be re gassed and it needs a new tyre, but the owner is planning on getting a new MOT done asap so he'll change the tyres and he BBS alloys look like they've been in a blender they're so badly curbed!

I've however only heard good things about the 1.4tdi, but anything else to look out for and any advice much appreciated!

It’s about £300-350 for a cambelt and water pump replacement at a decent independent specialist

Check it’s had a replacement diesel filter also as that would’ve been due and it’s seldom replaced on time
