Default Any tips on doing timing belt on a 2.8 32V?

Hi I need to do the timing belt on my 2002 2.8Q
I know that its a good idea to also do the water pump and make sure its rotor is a metal one and not plastic. I will be also replacing the thermostat. The belt kit itself will be INA brand.

Is there any thing else I should be looking at?

Do any of you know any decent places in Wales to get it done?

I'd recommend a genuine water pump - they're only 80 or so, and they come with a new gasket.

A genuine thermostat is about 25, although this time doesn't come with the o-ring so don't forget that.

You'll need a vacuum coolant filling system to bleed it properly afterwards as the V6 won't bleed itself like the V8 does.

How much would it cost to do it through you?

I'm not taking on any customer work at the moment.

Hopefully someone will be able to make a recommendation in your area though
