Replacing the timing belt and other parts

So I just got off the phone with my mechanic and he wants to charge me $203.30 for factory parts including the timing belt, balancer belt, and water pump. With the tensioner is comes to $304.10. Also wants $250 for labor on top of the parts. Does this sound about right? I also need break pads which he said was another $56.38 front and $61.12 back. He included the breaks in the labor price. Everything is direct from Honda. So does this sounds about right?
~Thanks

Re: Replacing the timing belt and other parts

the timing belt kit all together comes to 304 usd, thats about 270 euro (irl)
thats about right, plus their genuine honda parts

theres 2 belts, 2 tensioners and water pump,

the labour, i dont know whats fair labour over there, but 250 usd is ok in irish money so??
all i know is that there is a lot of work in doing a timing belt in a prelude

look at it on the bright side, its a job that needs to be done, and its ok for 60,000 miles

Re: Replacing the timing belt and other parts

the price on hondaautomotiveparts.com for the auto adjuster, t belt, balancer belt, and water pump is 240.94 and that includes shipping and handleing

honda brake pads from hondaautomotiveparts.com 101.18 for front and rear sets including shipping and handleing

so you might come out cheaper if you just order the parts yourself and ask him just to do the labor or ask him to order the parts from majestic instead of yalls local honda dealership which those prices i think are what the dealers would charge because they are really close to the list price stated on majestic

my mechanic quoted me $550 for the t-belt job which includes all the parts you listed. It should also include a radiator flush and replacement of various oil seals (not sure exactly which ones though). My mechanic said he would also give me a free valve adjusment But it sounds about right to me. Like 91 said, you may be able to get parts cheaper elsewhere.

Honda told me the exact same service minus the valve adjustment would be about $775

Btw Kurea everyone always talks about your ROTM month photo on my calender when they come in my room!

Re: Replacing the timing belt and other parts

yea i agree with J find the parts yourself and just pay him for labor, also while your in there i highly recommend doing the H23 manual tensioner conversion, and make sure you get the retainer plate for the front balancer shaft seal that bitch popped out on me and i almost ran my dry.

Edit: I know you'll need a few other seals and what not but here check this out:

Re: Replacing the timing belt and other parts

Took the words right from my mouth...manual tensioner would be a good idea... that stupid seal thing blew out on me cuz the F***er that did the T-belt before didnt put in that plate. HUUUGE MESSS. It was a Service bulletin back in the day and they're supposed to be put in regardless. Definitely bring it up...

Re: Replacing the timing belt and other parts

trust me cheaper is not always better....i just had all my seals replaced, water pump, timing belts, and head job for $800. Thought this was cool
then everything went to crap...found out he used cheap parts so know i'm dealing w overheating probs and it's smoking again. yeh i had the valve seals done (cheap crappy parts) and i don't think he changed the valve guides!!!
i am either doing it myself or using (imports only) the most expensive shop in town....but i heard well worth it

~Thanks everyone, yeah I guess the last time I did a timing belt was on my old 91 corolla and it was really cheap! I am def using Honda parts and I will prob check and see if I can find them a little cheap and let him do it.

Re: Replacing the timing belt and other parts

Sounds about right to me. Yes it would be cheaper if you went and bought the parts yourself, but atleast he's not being greedy like firestone;

Re: Replacing the timing belt and other parts

^^labor rate is anywhere from 65-75/hr here.

we should def look into the manual tensioner conversion a little more. parts will most likely be ordered through magestic honda. If he said he would do all of it for $250 (timing belt, brakes, and adjust the valves) then that sounds like a good deal to me. you need tires too! lol
