    Default Cdti 150 cambelt change

    What mileage is everyone changing the cambelt on the 16v cdti engine. I think Vauxhall say it should be done at 100,000.

    When I buy a new car I change it and then half what Vauxhall say.

    I think Vauxhall revised it to 80k but thats still to long in my eyes (I do mine every 40k).

    Yep, 100K or 10 years.
    Long time for an elastic band.
    I done mine at 65K, I'd heard a few had gone at about 70K so did not want to take the risk.

    Nope as the water pump is only about £65 and about an extra 15 minutes to fit it.

    The belts themselves would probably last 80-100k, but from my experience it's more likely to be the water pump that seizes causing the failure. Mine failed at approx 65K so I would recommend changing at around 50k, and definitely change the water pump at the same time.

    Definitely get the waterpump done too! Mine cost £28 and its the most likely thing to fail with nasty results
