Does anyone know what the manufacturer of the original abarth timing belt kit is? Of if any of these are atleast as good as the original.

I shouldn't have trouble getting it fitted as I know someone local who I should be able to trust.

I'm just a thad under 60, but enjoying the Campovolo grey, chiptuned (300Nm, 170HP) Abarth I purchased 5 months ago really really!
Mine gets a new belt and waterpump today since the old one was 5 years old now.

Beware many independent repairers will not fit customer supplied items because of warranty issues.

Prices for cam belt change start from £200 inc parts so worth shopping around.

Your best solution is to get it up on a ramp, go under it and prod and move anything until you get the noise. There are a million and one things it COULD be! Heat shield, exhaust, plastic arch liners, drop links, etc etc. It is the only way!

Suppose that's once way of doing it.

I've a question regarding the timing belt. I called my nearest Abarth dealer in Darlington they quoted me it was either £455 or £465 for the timing belt. I asked them how much they charged for it without fitting and they said £105+Vat. I checked Euro Car Parts and all it is on there is £50 odd. But obviously I don't know whether the one from Euro Car Parts is any good or not. What would you guys do? I am thinking buy the original of the dealer and get it fitted elsewhere.
