    Default 2003 vectra c 1.8 ls Timing Belt

    Hi There

    I have a 2003 Vectra c 1.8 LS and i was wondering what the recommended timing belt renewal is for them. My car as just reached 64000 and i can not find any history of it being changed. I know the timing belt usually get changed at 60 on most cars. I checked the belt and from what i can see it looks in relatively good state (that's without taking it off).

    Does the belt for my car get changed every 40000???

    Any advice guys would be good.

    Thanks

    thanks for your reply Das

    I'm presuming 60k means ever 40000 miles? So my car probably would not need changed till I reach 80 000 miles then?? (provided it was changed at 60k-40000 miles) which i have no idea if it was or wasn't other than it looks in good nick from the top cover.

    Thanks

    As long as it was done it should be ok. Id contact the last owner and check if they defiantly had the belt done, as if it hasn't and it breaks............ did you notice what the tensioner looked like? Original ones are of all metal construction, sure the new ones are made of plastic for some reason. I posted about this when I did mine, ill see if I can find the post.
