    60k is the official interval, but personally i'd do it sooner. Not much worse than a snapped cambelt... Game over for the engine...

    Dont think ive seen a broken timing belts on the 1.8 on this forum, most likely due to their much shorter change intervals. As already stated 6 years or 60K, Id defiantly get it done now though.

    Thanks...
    Don't forget the water pump as well......I also had the micro V belt changed at the same time even though it isn't mentioned in the Vxl service manual.

    Why...????

    For the cost of one and the fact that work was being done at that end of the engine with the timing belt change & water pump.

    Background...this thread...

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=132644

    Also, we were going on a motoring holiday to France later - in April...& have recently returned from that holiday.....The car ran a sweet as anything...

    Cheers
