    Astra CDTi Cambelt Change

    I ave recently bought a 2005/05 Mk 5 Vauxhall Astra 1.9 16v CDTI SRI (120). Fully standard engine and no mods as of yet.

    It has 55,000 on the clock and a full dealer history (2x 20,000 mile services).

    I phoned my local dealership and spoke to a service rep about recommended cambelt change mileages.

    I was told every 10 years or 100,000 miles.

    This sounds a little odd to me and perhaps I may be edging on the side of caution, but i would have though 60,000 miles.

    Anybody able to shed any light? Was the member of staff wrong?

    Any recommendations on when to change if so?

    Just asked our service guys, there is a little variation dependant on engine code and year, but for your car 10years or 100k is correct.

    Thanks Dave,

    Would you recommend getting it done before then though?

    I would always recommend changing the belts prior to the stated time, always better safe than sorry imo.
