Any Bush Lawyers out there.

Took delivery of the 1999 Pajero GLS today 103,000 on the clock, Its Christmas -Toys and all.

Bought a Mitsubishi 3 year extended warranty $1200. Got home and read the fine print, gotta have serviced in accordance with Manufactuers specifications.

Next service due 105,000 according to service book. No big deal we say.

Fine print in service book says timing belt must be replaced .

What!!!!!!! that ain't a $20 job I bet. So only after 2000k I gotta spend big bucks again??

Anyone know how much it costs to replace a timing belt on NL Pajero??

Sounds a bit rich to me on the prices that some of you have posted. I had my 93 NH done at Gympie (Qld) Mitsubishi a few months back and the 100K service plus timing belt done for a tad under $600 Regards Salty.

Russell, had mine done on a 3500 dohc by a local mechanic at $350.00, but a quote from Mitsubishi was around the $750.00 mark.
Just make sure whoever you go to that they tourque up the harmonic balance properly as they are notourios for coming loose after a belt change.
best of luck!

well salty thats not a bad price. To do a service and timing belt change for $600. Mitsubishi dealer? I wasn't far off the mark. Change out of a grand is about right. Just flicking through my records and I see that for the 200000km service, WITHOUT the timing belt,(this was done after) was $534. So the timing belt must be close to $300 odd to change it.
Yep, my harmonice balancer had come loose, and it had to be renewed together with alot of the parts behind that area. Fortunately the guy I bought it from had fixed it all. Been OK since...

cheers

The closing Note.

After "friendly" discussion with Dealers agreed to goes halves on cost of doing Timing Belt. My share $300.

Buyers beware. Even RAA (NRMS-RAVC- RAQC) advisor agreed with dealer.

Bewarned.
