Service Agent

Hi All,

My Fortuner has now finally reached 150 000 and its due to have its belt replaced.
Its been serviced by the agents since new but this service seems a bit excessive. I requested quotes yesterday and the first quote i received was R6k, so I'm thinking its time to investigate alternatives.
Does anybody have any recommendations for an alternative shop in the Pretoria area?

Thanks,

Erik

Cam belt or V belt? Either way, it is very easy to do yourself if you are a bit hands on. there is a very good how to guide on hilux.co.za. But bear in mind that the belts alone will be around R2500 and with the tentioners a lot more. Dont know what you got quoted on.

We have just done 150000km timing belt/service on one of our Xtra cabs and the total invoice was R6300.

I was thinking I will be doing this service through somebody other than Toyota but the quotes I received from other places are not good enough to use them so I'll be doing the service end of this week with Toyota for the quoted amount of R6k.

I think I should seriously consider doing the services as a side line job from home.

I am on 136 000, have done some mud riding with my fortuner and either the v belt or timing belt has started to make some noises on startup and goes away after 1 -2 km of driving. I do have an extended warrenty on my fortuner since i bought it at Volvo.

Asked toyota round about what they will charge me for belt change and water pump change and it is apprently many many thousands.Above 10k. so i just bought the parts thinking bugger the 1 year extended warrenty which i am 4 months into.

Parts price as follows: * Note i received 20% discount*

BELT V-RIBBED 90916 T2006 = R875.66
IDLER SUB-ASSY 13505 67042 = R878.98
BELT TIMING 13568 39016 = R767.18
TENSIONER ASSY 13540 67020 = R670.10
WATER PUMP ASSY 16100 39486 R 1450.78

Total including VAT = R 5339.10

So just in parts already it is pretty expensive if you buy directly from toyota but it gives me piece of mind
