    How much can I expect to pay for a belt replacement? Also, what else will
    need to be done.

    I'm not sure the cost of the package where you live, but expect to pay anywhere from 400-600 dollars. On Honda's the interval is about 90,000 miles
    and that is about the time the water pump should be changed as well. Now since you have to change it at around 60,000 (I assume since you didn't
    mention how many miles are on it) I would personally get it changed as if you wait and the pump starts leaking at around 90k and you won't be able to
    make it until 120k, you'll have to pay the same amount of labor again at 90k as you are paying now. Food for thought.

    on my 1998 Elantra.
    96,600 km was when it was changed.
    I checked 4-5 different places. All gave me different quotes. Lowest 2.5
    hours labour, highest 5.0 hrs.
    The local Ford dealership did mine for 2.5 hours.
    It was 2.5 hours because they said the closest Hyundai Dealership quoted
    that to them. They are 140km away.
    Very inconvenient, so that's why I like the ford dealership. They know me
    I bought the belt myself. The belt was 56.00 Canadian.

    BTW, I had the fuel filter changed at the same.
    That little sucker was $33.00!! (just for the filter!!)
    Isn't that expensive??
