Our 300M's timing belt is now due for replacement, but I am wondering how much difference it makes where I have the job done. I am planning to have the water pump, tensioner and pulley replaced all at the same time.
The single-location Chrysler dealership where we had all our service
done during the 6+ years we've lived here is no longer an authorized
dealer but advertises that they still have all the special tools.
Not far away is a multi-location (two-state even) dealership -- still
authorized -- with which I have had no dealings at all.
There are independents of which people speak well. If I went to one of
those I would specify genuine Mopar parts -- at least for the belt and
Any recommendations? Obviously the vehicle is no longer in warranty, but
are there any relevant TSBs about which an independent or a delisted
former dealership might not be aware?
