1.2 Corsa head gasket
« on: 02 December 2018, 13:06:47 »

How much would we reckon for a head gasket replacement on a 1200 Corsa? The daughter of a lad at work has been quoted 」700 & 」500 For the job. Does anyone know how many hours it should take? 1st quote seems a bit high though I suppose 」500 isn't too bad ....  :-\

SWMBO's 2002 Galaxy TDi (so really a VW Golf oil burner) has just had a new head gasket fitted.

I was quoted 」700 - haven't had the invoice yet though.....
