Well Once you replace the timing belt its recommendable to replace all the oil seals the tensioner and the WATER PUMP.
The oil pump they said?
Well ask them why !
It is damage?
Once you drive your car into a dealer they start making money and looking the way to make more.
I would recommend you to get a quote on a good shop and then compare the prices. You know, most of the people think that the dealer mechanics are always right and. That its not true!
We re mechanics and some of us we used to work on a dealer and we know for a fact that the dealer charges a lot more money than a good reputable shop, on the same exact job.
Also be sure that the part that they are replacing it need to be replaced !
