Expert:  Robert replied 2 years ago.

Hi..there thanks for your reply..

Ok.normally its known to be around every 144,000miles / 192months which ever comes round first on the 1.6Diesel - that in its self in my opinion is far to long to leave the belt..the best advice and what normally alot of people opt for is to bring that down to say every 60,000 - 70,000miles / 60months which ever come first.of course you could do it little earlier if prefered.. But it should also include aswell as the Timing belt - new idlers/tensioner,water pump..so thats about the best advice for that..I do hope this helps
