    Default Cambelt question on a 2004 Corsa?

    Mum's Corsa has just passes 40k miles, and according to "whatcar" this is when the cambelt should be replaced.

    Went over to a local garage where we have gone before and have had good experiences with and the guy said that there was no belt, and it is a chain - meaning it would never have to be replaced?

    Now when we got home I had a look, and it certainly looks like a belt to me. The black elasticy looking thing running round some "wheels" on the left hand side of the engine, about 1.5 cm thick and certainly not a chain. I may be looking at totally the wrong thing, but could you shed some light of this?

    I can get some pictures if you need.

    Its a 2004 1.2 16v Corsa.

    The timing belt is behind covers, what you can see on the side of the engine is the auxilliary belt sometimes called a fan belt or more correctly a FEAD (Front End Auxilliary Drive)

    The 1.2 Corsa has a cam chain, not a cam belt.

    Besides that, only cars UP TO 2002 needed them changing at 40,000 miles or 4 years.

    2003 model = 6 years, or 60,000 miles.
    Z17DT/L = 10 years, or 100,000 miles.
    Z17DTH = 10 years, or 60,000 miles.

    1.0, 1.2, & Z14XEP petrol, and Z13DT diesel engines are camchain.

    Irrespective, I'd still change at 40K miles, given all the horror stories of premature cambelt failure

    Agree though, this model has a camchain, and no need to replace unless noisy
    All that is required is to remove the cover and inspect
