    Mk3 cambelt life

    I have a 16v 1996 GLS. I have been told by two garages that the cambelt should be changed at about 40k, while the other says 80k. The car had a new one fitted by the original owner at 42k. I am the 2nd owner and the car has completed 72k. Which garage is correct?

    Any help much appreciated
