Timing belt/Cam Belt change


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

My car has done 54k miles and is an 09 plate. Next year its supposedly due for a new cambelt/timing belt. However would you advise this as i have done no where near the 100k miles!

My mileage per a year is less than 5k miles. Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks guys

Change it every 3-4 years regardless of mileage.

Its not just a matter of miles, the belt deteriorates over time.

The belt is rated for 10 years at least I've never seen a belt deteriorate before that time unless mileage is high or its contaminated. I'd replace year 8-9 you're wasting money if you replace every 3-4 years just due to age and I've been a fully qualified mechanic for 20 years
