2012 T5 S60 Timing Belt replacement

Post by Fourthvolvo1 » Tue Dec 03, 2019 10:12 am

Im contemplating replacing my timing belt. Several shops and dealer are quoting $900-1500 for parts and labor. I have done several timing belts on a 1995 850 and a 2006 S60 T5, neither car was very difficult. Anything different or more difficult with the 2012 S60 T5 as I have not been able to find much information online and the Chiltons DIY is virtually useless also. Looks like the motor mount on the passenger side is different and will require the engine to be supported on that side.
In the 850, I replaced the water pump only once and in the previous S60 I never did. I drove the two cars for a combined 600,000 miles. Any comments on the water pump longevity on the newer Volvo engines?
Thanks in advance.


Thanks,
Tom

The 2006 S60 was a 2.5 T not T5.
