I checked the timing belt and also had it checked at EuroRepar and it seems fine at 80k+ kms. It seems the car was serviced with Total B71 2290 every 15k kms before I bought it. There are no signs on bolts to suggest the belt was serviced.

I currently use Total 2312 . Will have it replaced at 90k with 2297 (as suggested by servicebox) just to see how it looks. Maybe get the pan removed to check the strainer.

Took my car (2016, 45k) in to a dealer for the recall, was told no issues with the belt. I wasn't convinced (there is a longer story to this...) so I took it into another dealer after involving Peugeot CS. The other dealer then found fibres in the sump and blockages, although I had no warning lights and the car drove well. There was a worrying knocking noise though. The belt was replaced and the cleaning/flushing carried out. They replaced one of the solenoids and now the car sounds great, so hoping no lasting damage.

Clearly the width inspection isn't enough, but it's probably a way for them not to have thousands of cars needing belt changes all at once. I'd be looking for a second opinion if your car is 2013-17 as I think the only real way to know the belts condition is by checking the sump.

2022...23 chain
Likely fuel in oil issues, never was fully fixed, many different belts.

I pray that using LPG and 7000km half yearly oil changes will minimize risk. We will see.
I wonder if the switch to a chain could leave them open to a legal inference that even the latest belts have a design fault? Hopefully put an onus on them to fund repairs, but somehow I doubt it.
