    Worried about cambelt!

    Hello people. I've bought an 1.8 SRi MK4 in Scotland and am travelling the 450 miles on tuesday to pick it up lol.

    The only thing that worries me is that it has done 45,000 miles and no mention of the Cambelt ever being changed.

    I can get it done as soon as the car is back down here but I have to go from Scotland to the south east with the worry of the Cambelt!

    Anyone have any advice to give?

    Thanks, Joe.

    i would not panic too much, vauxhall say 40,000 miles or every 4 years and it is still fairly low miles. just get it done when you get it back home using a full cambelt kit (gates kits are top quality) and do the waterpump at the same time and it will be good upto 80,000
