Personally I didn't find it difficult just a bit fiddly getting one of the mount bolts out that's all, I would expect a garage to charge about 4 hours labour plus parts. I wouldn't expect a great deal of change out of £400 depending what garage you use.

thanks johnny for the reply think I will have to tackle the job myself anyway if it will cost around that doesn't look too difficult

From memory all 8v PD use same locking tools,sorry no numbers.

I reckon couple of hours in total to do belt kit and pump.

Bit fiddly belts on these getting back on start at crank and route around water pump to cam so slack goes at back by tensioner. You will prob need to slacken the 3 13mm bolts on cam sprocket to aid fitting.

I paid £280 at an independent garage.

When I worked at an Audi dealer it was £400 for a pd engine
