Does anyone know if the timing belt is meant to last the lifespan of the engine or does it have a maintenance schedule?

I.understand it is a lubricated belt and is more lasting than the normal belt. Dealer can't give me an answer on this.

I don't think it is timing belt. It should be timing chain which should last throughout the lifespan unless any mechanical failure of cause. The timing belt average lifespan would be 100,000 km's.

No same as latest Ford engine its a normal belt that runs in oil and a long winded job to change as no easy removal covers due to need to contain oil spray/splash

Interesting, I thought timing belt days are over. Looks like another thing to worry. Do not expect to easy task to replace. :(:(:(

I was told that the timing belt on the 1.6 petrol was a chain by a salesman and that it was also used in BMW. Not sure if that is true?

It was a BMW/PSA joint venture 'Prince' engine, which apparently had issues with the BMW designed, slightly narrower chain than normal.
It seems Peugeot/Citroen attended to the problem but how, I wonder?.

Tensioner was the weak point leading to loose chain and the snatching caused the chain to fail. They updated chain and tensioner on later engines

Have the problems with the Prince engine been rectified for the 3008/5008 2017+?

I read the first chain was 30% narrower than usual.......any idea if that's still the case?.
