    Preferred brand for timing belt kit + aux

    Hi guys, first post as I've just bought a v70 2.3 T5. I need to do the timing belt, w/pump and aux whilst i'm there, is there a recommended brand too use? I've read about Hepu? but if someone could give me some guidance of what kit to get and who to buy from that's be great, what prices should I be accepting and what is considered to much?

    You might be sorted by now, but just not worth going with pattern parts when you can buy original Volvo genuine parts from eBay sellers Volvopartstrade and bells volvo at really competitive prices.
    Water pump - unlike VW Group cars, pump does not need replacement on the 5 cyl Volvo unless it's leaking or the bearing feels worn - unless you're fitting a genuine Volvo water pump, you'll probably be fitting an inferior quality pump.

    I agree with John, however, if the car is a high miler (150k +) then I would replace the water pump as they can get a little bit noisy over time.

    Stick with Genuine Volvo kit though, inc WP.

    ps. Do not fit a Euro's special water pump.
