I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?

Hello Apologies for the wait this model has no cam belt that needs replacing as its fitted with a chain that should last at least 150K miles ( providing the oil change intervals are kept to) the flat auxilary drive belt that turns the alternator etc however should be replaced every 40K miles
