Hi..there..

Normally during any big or major service the areas that needs to be checked as standard can consist off -

- engine oil / filter change ,

- coolant strength test and or replacement ,

- brake fluid check or replacement normally every 2 years advised ,

- Diesel filter replacement being a 2.2crd ,

- air filter and pollen filter renewal ,

- auxiallary belt check and replace if cracked

- battery condition and state check,charging system ,

- obviously a routine check for engine fluid leaks,

- exhaust inspection ,

- general suspension and steering check ,

- Brake line and flexi line inspection ,

- brake system pads and disc condition,wear check and replace if required ,

- tyre tread depth and pressures check ,

- exterior lighting and wiper system check including washers ,

- diagnostic health check via 16pin port....

Being 2.2crd diesel then it will have timing chain - so no timing belt to worry about...

So it can involve a fair time to check and replace all that and normally big services id say should be done at least every second/third year with intermediate services for routine checking yearly... as far as cost goes..it really hard to say to be honest as alot of garage can differ cost wise for these and what offers they have on to provide such a service..and what ever they find during the inspection so to speak..it really a case of shopping around for the best quote on a major service - you could try this site if required www.goodgaragescheme.co.uk ... i do hope this helps
