    Default Cam Belt or Chain

    Car has just done 40k and looked in service book for info about changing this whichever it is could only find this changing intervals for 3.0v6 1.3 and 1.7 cdti models nothing about 1.9 cdti, so when my car was in for its taxi test I asked the tested who told me it was a chain and so I shouldnt worry about it, now I'm a fan of regular belt changes (every 40k I used to do it on my sri 140) so was just wondering have I been given the correct advice?

    agreee defo belt driven, and they vary greatly on the mileage side any thing between 60k and 100k, so check carefully ok.
