    That's the "timing" belt - it makes sure that the valves open and close at the correct "time", i.e. when the piston isn't at the top of the cylinder. As the belt has snapped, it's highly likely that the valves and the piston will have collided in at least one cylinder. To find out what damage has occurred you will have to have the cylinder head removed and that will expose the valves on the underside of the head and also the pistons in the engine block.

    ouch

    how many miles had you done?

    belts should last on 1.9 cdti 150 for 10 years of 90000 miles according to Vx....
    having said that i got mine changed at 82000 and good job as it was not far from failure

    what engine are you running. i'll check for you when they suggest changing it.

    if it dies before that point i'd reckon you have a good case to take them to task for premature belt failure.

    Are the valves 'interference' or 'non-interference' with regards to the pistons on the 1.8's ?
