Recommended Posts

I am really thankful for the quick response Mitsubishi has quoted approximately 7.5k.

What should be reasonable prize for the belt

That is a crazy price. I can do it for a quarter of that using genuine Mitsubishi parts

I have a pajero 2010 and i am now at 129,000 kms. i want to change the timing belt, as i was informed it was dangerous not to. Should i stop driving the car immediately? How much exactly do i need to shell out for the timing belt please. I would appreciate your response since I am having sleepless nights. I will be selling the car as well, so should I just change it before selling or should i just inform the buyer that they need to change it?

It's not dangerous as in you will die if you don't change it. However, if the belt breaks, you could end up with a bigger bill, repairing bent valves etc. 

The belt might break or it might go 200k with no problems, there's no guarantee. 

Cost should be 1,500 or less. 

If you change the belt, it is a good selling point. If you don't, the buyer can use it as a bargaining chip.

I recently changed it at John's auto repair in Sharjah. It will cost you approx 550 in parts as u need to change belt and a few pulleys. The labor is expensive around 800 and it takes a whole day if u give the car in the morning

Also recommended to change air filter and Sparks plugs at this age. I also changed front brake pads as well.

Air filter, plugs and pads should be changed on condition, not age. Different people have different driving styles therefore the parts wear differently.

Just to continue this thread, I'm up to 115km on a 2009 plate so due a cam belt. I've been quoted 5500 for it plus full service. Anyone know where I can get it done well for a little less in Abu Dhabi, that's a fair chunk of change!
