When to replace my Meriva's cam belt?

I've just bought a 2005 Vaxhall Meriva diesel. It's got 66k on the clock. Does it have a cam belt and at what mileage would it need replacing?

Answer

Hi Chris,

If it has the 1.3-litre CDTi diesel engine, then it has a timing chain.

The 1.7-litre CDTi diesel engine has a timing belt that must be changed at least every 10 years or 100,000 kilometres, whichever comes first. 

If it's the older 1.7-litre 'DI' or 'DTI' diesels, that's 150,000km or 10 years.
