    yes , belt.
    when i got my car i rang vauxhall to check when belt change was needed they suprised me and said 100k miles.
    didnt take any chances,had my local garage change mine at 85k miles.
    i bought the belt kit myself from a website called vauxhall world parts.. very reasonable,and made by GATES,who are known worldwide for QUALITY.
    hope this helps!

    Not sure with petrols but DTI chains go on forever if you here it rattling then i would get it changed if not they are quite good but that's only my personal opinion
