Hi
Does anyone know the mileage intervals for changing the cam belt on this car. I'm currently on 45,000 miles, hopefully its 72,000 miles.

Can't find any reference to the intervals though.

Thanks for the info.

How will I know whether I've got the Manual tensioner type or the Automatic type.

The registration of the car is on a 51 plate.

Thats the problem m8,, you realy need to strip the casing of to look.
Cam belt jobs are not for the faint hearted tho.

Oh well, looks like I'll have to get the job done then. Any idea of the total cost by an independant garage? Dealer servicing is just too expensive for me.

In fact I rang a dealer today, and they told me the 45 didn't have a belt - that it has a chain - so not much confidence there.

It is listed in autodata to take 3,10 hrs.

Hope this helps m8

I have a 25 TD the 45 may be different. I had a similar dilema as you. So, anyway, I thought best to get the info from the horses mouth - Rover, I phone a Rover (or ex) near me and they very kndly supplied me with the following info :- Bearing in mind I asked about the 25, no idea if the 45 is the same, but it should be shouldn't it ?

Up to chassis number RF 545050 is 84000 miles
After chassis number RF 545050 is 48000 miles

I looked at my Registration Document and there are more letters and digits than the above numbers, but if you look hard enough, you should see the relevant letters, and the numbers on the end. If in any doubt, best to ask a Rover dealer.

surely you must have that the other way around, i thought the newer versions had timing belts which lasted 84k, i have a w-reg 2.0 td which is manyfacured in july 2000.

can anyone advise when it recommended to change timing belt.

its not just mileage but age aswell,as yours is a 2000 model its time to change it regardless of the mileage imo.

better to be safe then sorry, gonna change the timing belt and pump belt. another question does the timing belt pulley have to be changed also?

bit happy today, new maf sensor arrived for bargain price for 35, worked a treat and idling correct and much better performance.

theres always confusion on this matter,

just change it at 50k or 5/6 years whichever comes first for peace of mind if you intend keeping it a while.

spending 200/250 on this is well worth it in the long run imo.

I may be wrong!, but it would appear that it's just the FIP belt that requires replacing @ 48,000m on the later models?? and the cambelt @84000m:dunno:....... anyone know for sure??

I could be wrong on the tensioner types........

BOTH belts need to be changed at the same time & mileage.
