    So my last cambelt change was around 2007/8, need to double check, I had the water pump done at the same time. I've since done only 14k miles, and was wondering if I should consider changing it again soon?

    Car's on 62k miles, maybe just change the belt, or the whole shebang again?

    Thoughts?

    Personally for the amount of effort and for peace of mind change it again...

    If the tensioner damper has not been done then do that too

    I would do both to be on the safe side Jo, may as well if you are doing the belt.

    Lee, what do you do, do you have a garage??
