Belt or chain in my 2011 Astra petrol?

Hi there,

I have a 2011 Opel Astra H, 1.4-litre petrol car. Does this have a timing belt or chain and how many miles or years should this be changed after?

Hi Eric,

That engine has a timing chain, with no scheduled changes. It's designed for the life of the engine.
