    Default Chain or belt?

    I have a 1.9 CDTi 150 on a 55 plate and was wondering if I have a cam belt or a cam chain. If it is a belt could someone let me know when I need to change it, my car has done 23000miles and has a full dealer service history. Thanks for your help.

    cam belt..

    officially it's 100,000 miles in the handbook, but VX have hauled it right back to 40K... the choice is yours on when to get it changed, but i'd not leave it on past 50K...

    I'd heed that advice iiwy, but a VX dealer did say 100k to me the other week when I was looking to get back Vecside.
