    MK5 Astra 2004 1.7cdti (80) Cambelt change?

    Hi all,

    I have had this car for roughly 15 months and looking at the service log I am uncertain if the cambelt has been changed.

    Please can someone clarify for me when it should be changed, I have been told 60K from friends, to phone the dealership and to be told 100K and then to get it serviced Saturday and be told 60K again. It has done 85K now so right smack in the middle of both!

    Any help appreciated,

    Mike

    Yes, I'd change the cambelt kit(belt, tensioner & idiler), parts alone are £100 ish plus what ever their labour is.

    I use Andrew Pages to get the complete cam belt kit made by gates, which make them for vauxhall
