Question Cost to change the timing belt?

I just got a 99 honda civic ex with 96,000 miles on it, I know it's time to change the time belt. Does anyone know the avg. cost range to change a time belt w/ water pumps?

Also my driver window always get out of place when I try to close it, and the window kinda stick out of the car door, does anyone know what's wrong with it?

great lots of money... do they have to take the Engine apart?

I asked around, a mechanic said 350, and another person said 260 and it would take him like 3.5 hours i think. I don't know the guy really well, but im worried he might be pulling one on me :-S

Here in SF, I got quoted for $474.10 for the timing belt and water pump change. Not too bad. The dealerships here ask for at least 600.

As for the window, do it yourself! Its a whole lot cheaper and not hard at all to do. The only hard part would be putting the door panel back after you reset the window. There are threads here that can help you with that.

I called a dealership yesterday and they said 580.00. Then I informed him I have the DOHC B16a2. Then the price went up to 880.00. I ordered the parts and a service manual. I have faith.
