We seem to be missing the post that would be with the topic title.


The frequency of changing the cam belt is in the Warranty and Maintenance guide with the service stamps but for Citroens tends to be 10 years or a mileage if sooner. The mileage depends on the engine and whether classed as normal use or arduous but can be 100k miles or more. This does not prevent it being replaced earlier though if getting a bit nervous that it might fail which they sometimes do and there have been topics on here. If there are any oil leaks on the engine then the belt ought to at least be checked in case it is contaminated.


As well as the belt, it is normal to replace the water pump, the tensioner and any pulleys it runs around. If the aux belt has not been replaced then that should also be done whilst it is all in bits.
