    confused techy/cam belt

    Hello All,

    Appologies that this is not a Signum query... I have a quickie about our other corsa C....

    I have heard conflicting reports from different forums and members, with reference to cam belts on the Corsa C, 1.8.
    TO when they should be changed, or even if they are chains of belts?

    I have a 2004 corsa C. 1800. I have owned it since 17,000 miles and now I have trikled over 50,000!

    Do I have belt or Chain? And when should It change?

    Cheers in advance,
    Ian.
