    Default 2.2DTI cam belt or chain?

    hi i have a 2.2 dti signum on a 53 plate, i know very little about the car and have a few questions.

    1 is the car on a cam belt or chain as it is coming upto 90k with full vauxhall service history but no mention of it being replaced,

    2. can i fit a switch to turn of the traction control?

    thanks

    1, it is a chain on the 2.2Dti's

    2, you can fit a TC switch, it works on some cars, and not on others.

    yep, as above.. it's a chain, so as long as it's not rattling, don't worry about it..

    if you remove the switchblank were the TC switch should go there MAY be a blue connector.. if there is one then it's 50/50 at best if it'll work.. if there isn't one then it's game over..

    There is no service interval for the chain, but as Mark (GSi3.2) says, if it's not rattling is doesn't need changing. It starts to rattle as it stretches and the tensioner can no longer take up all the slack.
