I've seen quotes for timing belt replacement between $250-$750, depending on how much labor is involved and the hourly labor rate
Replacing timing belts can take as few as two hours and as many as six hours. I've heard of hourly labor quotes from $40 an hour where there is a low cost of living, to over $110-$150 an hour at BMW and Mercedes dealerships in urban areas. In my area in Kentucky there are ordinary repair shops with rates from $55-$80 an hour, and ordinary dealerships with rates of $80-$90.
