Whats the Mileage- i.e. is this the first or second belt change?
I would strongly recommend you have the water pump, tensioner, and idler
rollers changed at the same time, you may also require a new Aux belt, in
addition to fresh coolant etc.
At a dealer, using their parts its about a £350 job. It was ~£280 for me at
a trusted local garage using OEM parts sourced from EuroCarParts on our 97
S70 at 70k miles.
