    max of 80k the recommend but I would do it earlier and at the same time get the tensioners and the water pump done as a waterpump failure can do the same damage as a cambelt

    same as mine, Vauxhall state 100k or 10 years, whichever is sooner.

    It's all down to your own choice though mate, mine is a 56 and at 80k will have a new belt fitted, can't be paying for a new engine these days!

    Godzilla, just out of interest, what kind of damage can a pump failure cause?

    I've always done them as standard, but only because it seemed cost-effective.

    I agree with the 80k interval, no point taking risks with a cambelt...
