yes its an easy job, but not as simple as a lot of you think, requires take off the crank pulley, cam cover, cam sprocket, rear cam cover, just to undo the three bolts for the thermostat. stupid place to put it IMO but just wanna get a rough idea of how much vaux would charge to do it, i told her 60 which i think is more than reasonable, thats including a new thermostat and cam belt, told her i would change the water pump for free too if she was to buy it.

Timing belt off so may as well replace that and water pump while your there.

Not as easy as they could be as I'm sure on mine you had to take all timing belts and stuff off which turned a 15minute job into half a day or whatever.
