Default Peugeot 407 2.0 HDI cam chain

Hi anybody know what mileage the cam chain needs changing on 2.0 HDI
I am changing the cam belt next week and though I would do the chain at same time if it needs it. Mileage is 220000.
Thanks

There is no set schedule for chain replacement but at that mileage the guide/tensioner could well be worn.

Chain replacement is a big job meaning injectors out etc

Probably be cheaper and easier to source a second hand engine from a wreck. Must be thousands of them with much much less miles/Km than 220000!!

My thoughts exactly.
I have had it from 25000 and always give it a good service.
It returns 58 mpg on my runs up and down to spain and about 44 mpg local.

When i was fixing taxis we seen plenty with over 400k miles on them and i guarantee you some of those are STILL going !

Turbos on the RHW engine which is older version of this engine would fail at around 350k miles we had a fleet of 10 to look after and all failed at same mileage but ALL were still running when i left on their original engines and were at the 400k mark then

The newer ones with the rhk/rhr type engine would need rockers at around 180k due to wear but do them and they are good for another 180k ! these engines can do big miles IF LOOKED AFTER.
