    I think you have a chain not a cam belt. So unless it "rattles" you will not need to change it.

    As above, and as long as you give it regular servicing/oil changes then you'll keep the chains in good nick.

    Crikey! Whatever was I thinking. Yes, you're right. It's the Fiat derived diesel engines that have belts. The 2.0 / 2.2 diesel and the 2.0 turbo / 2.2 petrol have chains.
