I did a search and found a few "DIY" threads but could not find any indicating what a dealer/independent charged. Anyone not do it themsleves? What were you charged? Any additional work recommended while everything is apart? Thanks.

Re: Timing belt. How much? (MJVolvo)

IIRC dealer is around ~$550-$650. It's been a while since I asked so I could be off.

Re: Timing belt. How much? (MJVolvo)

I would skip replacing the water pump but <B>definitely</B> replace the tensioner and idler bearing for teh t-belt. <br>Labor is about 3 hrs.<p>Reason I say to skip the pump is that I have seen very, very few pumps ever leak even on high mileage engines. Volvo does not recommend replacing the pump w/belt and the labor isn't excessive enough to warrant replacing it just cause. But to each their own
