    Default Cambelt query

    Ok so i keep hearing different things on when the cambelt should be changed. Now my car is a 2007 and had the cambelt done nearly 4 years ago at 38,000 miles. Yesterday it just went over 79,000. Is it due a next one?

    I'd say no. But you can always change it again.

    I would do it at 4yrs or 80k - prior to the VXR most Vauxhall belts needed changing at 36-40k or 4yrs. Then the extended servicing schedules were put in place (mainly for fleets to keep prices down) and we had the situation where they had to amend the schedule on cars like the Vectra Gsi, Omega V6 down from 80k to 40k due to failures

    Just been looking at mine. Was done at around 47k that was in April 2014.

    Now on 2018 circa 78k. The thing barely goes anywhere though so I'm sure it's fine.

    I was going to change mine at 5 years as that's what Courtenay say, but might consider doing it next year (changed in 2015 @ 58k) so that will be 4 years and 32k roughly since it was last changed...
