    Default belt change at 100K mile?

    noticed a post today claiming the 1.9 cdti (150bhp) timing belt is changed at 100K miles, i thought it was 60K, does anyone know for sure at what mileage it needs changing ?

    after the number of belt failures when VX pushed the limit out to 80K on petrol's, they swiftly had a change of heart and re-instated the 40K change..

    Call me a doubter but I always change the belt every 3 years or 30K, it's cheap insurance.. there is no way my dad's 150 cdti will take the same belt past 40K.. Even bought the locking kit for the engine in anticipation.. Got mine from sealey..

    i been looking around for info on belt change on the 150 cdti engine .i agree with gsi i would rather change it at 40k even if they say it can go double that, i still have a year and a half warranty left on my vectra but as soon as its expired i will be changing my belt.
    Gsi ,could you give me the sealey part number for the locking kit i did not know anybody had put one on the market yet, it looks like a major job to me, it looked like engine out on the tis that i had a quick look at.
    thanks
