300Tdi timing belt.

just wondering WHEN it has to be changed? what mileage/time?

Its a 98 auto if that makes any difference.

Thanks!

Re: 300Tdi timing belt.

72 k, however watch out for the dreaded shredding of belt due to timing case
warping because of incorrect torqing of fasteners. Personally I get mine
done at 2/3 the recomended mileage on any car to try and be safe.
Can't see why an auto should make any difference but I don't really know
about that.
Had mine done in Kent by an indipendant 196. Dealer wanted 500 !!!
