Buy cheap, buy twice. Unless the repro belt fails, then you buy a whole new engine. Don't d!ck about with non-genuine parts when it's something as critical as timing belts/tensioners.

very good advice.

Been quoted £250 ish for full belt kit and water pump fitted (think it was genuine parts). 

Planned in the new year, so fingers crossed she holds out!  Was last done 20k/2.5 years months ago...  :lipsrsealed:
