Cambelt Change
#1
Hi Guys and Gals,
What is the correct cambelt change interval  for my Belingo B9
Its a 64 plate XTR 1.6 Diesel Auto
I have been told 140,000 or 10 years but the 140K sounds very high
Does anybody know the true figure please
Many thanks, Richard

It is actually something like that officially but why not just do it now as it's 8 years old already.

Looks like you only have 20k miles on the clock? At that mileage & 8 years, you could just get the belt changed but wait a while for the water pump & belt idlers.
Either way, you're on the safe side at the moment but I'd do the belt at least.

My mechanic (not a stealer) has confirmed the figure of 150,000 for a cambelt change. However, as our dog van will be 10 years old next year and has covered 95,000 mile so far the belt will be changed at the next service due in March 2023. By all accounts quite an involved job so 'er indoors has time to save up!!!

Oh dear ! My VTR Airdream 14 plate (1 / 5/ 14) has done 43K miles and I was hoping to go a bit longer as I have been told the new belt is expensive to fit.
Due to the mess up with MOTs during Covid I have a few months to go before a service (only done 1500 miles since last service).
Just had new Michelin Cross Climates fitted after 23K miles. I find they are very good, and I'm hard of hearing so don't notice the road noise that some folk hear.

Any advice?

I should have said that the original factory fitted tyres were Michelin Energy savers. I replaced those at 20K with Michelin Cross Climate. After another 23K I've just had a new set of Cross Climate fitted.

On the subject of tyres we had 4 x Vredestein Quatrac 5 All Season tyres fitted to the van in November 2018 at 66,800 miles.  Chose these as the wife often goes "off piste" into fields during her dog training/competing and has had no problems with them not gripping on wet grass, mud, etc.  They are now coming up for replacement this year with current mileage of 94,700 so will probably go for these again.  I suspect by the time we change them they will have covered 30,000 miles.

On the timing belt, it hasn't done many miles as per the other chap and technically you have 2 years to go but if you can afford it then I'd do it as and when before the 10 years is up - but as with all components it's possible for it to go way beyond the lifespan or quit early, never can tell. I would say if you aren't doing track days / high RPM stunt driving then I'd expect it to last the course. Maybe worth getting it checked when the service is done, as they can see if there is shredding or tooth wear or cracking on the belt which would indicate it's not at its best.

Regarding timing belt change,there is only one golden rule,if in doubt,replace it,that's it.

Mine is 2016.,now has 167000km,original timing belt,replacement is due on 180 000km or 10 years,which ever comes first. Will try to use it even longer,of course will check condition,at least when i have it,then sell it,so i don't need to invest money in it.

Just me obviously but I always half whatever mileage or time they say, mine is 5 yrs old and done 70k so am getting it done very shortly, the damage resulting in a belt letting go is more often than not quite catastrophic so no brainer in my head.
