Just had the car back from it's service and MOT at the main agent.
Service manager informs me that they have had a bulletin from Peugeot recommending timing belt change at 6 years / 60K miles, rather than the 10years / 150 K in the book.
Anyone know anything? Obviously can't hurt to change it early, apart from in the wallet. :)

I change my Expert belt at 50000, wouldn't take the chance, water pump gets done at same time.
Thanks for the reply. I agree with you in principle. Belts are cheaper than engines, but the original 150K (which I thought was a lot) obviously comes from somewhere, and I read on a Berlingo forum ( I assume they are "the same") that according to Citroen customer service the 60K / 6 years is a misread memo or something.
