Hi.

I have a 2001 Y-reg 306 Meridian (Petrol 1.4).

Does anyone know when it should get its timing belt replaced?

I've lost the manual, but I seem to remember it said 50,000 miles (not sure).

I phoned a garage for a quote and they say 80,000 miles.

Which is right, if any? I'm currently sitting at 62,000 miles. :(

Hi and welcome to here :thumb:

If i were you i would get it changed now asap. PSA recommend 70,000 but i think 60,000-65,000 is more reasonable.

Regarding the timing belt, mine is due soon, I'm currently on just over 53,000 miles on my 307 HDi 2.0 LX and I'm expecting to change the belt around 60 to 65,000 miles. I read on a couple of places on the net that it's important to change the pulley along with the timing belt because they have a tendency to separate. So I mentioned this to my mechanic who came and serviced the car today, and he said ok, he'd then get a full kit to include the belt, pulley and other bits and bobs. This would mean a more expensive belt change coming to around £200 fitted. Just wanted to know if replacing the pulley is a definite necessity for the 307?
