Could anyone tell me what the replacement interval is for a 1.8 Mk2 cambelt? I've been told that the only stipulation is mileage rather than any time constraint, but i'm not sure I believe that. In case it makes any difference, the car i'm looking at is an import.

Many thanks in advance.

From this thread...

You can download the linked file - but to assist, cambelt change due at 54k miles OR 6 years.

Thanks for that. That schedule from Mazda doesn't mention years at all for the cambelt, just the mileage. Did this change at some point?

I'm sure there isn't any time, just mileage.. But 10 years is long enough imo.
