I change my belt at 70,000 miles without question. I had mine done last week checked the old belt found 1 very small hairline split on 1 of the teeth but that could of been caused by me stressing the belt to look for signs of wear. However the mechanic told me when he came to undo the tensioner it basically fell off in his hand finger tight. Eeesh werent I lucky!

I've asked the Peugeot dealer for the interval, as the handbook purely says "Consult your dealer".
They've quoted 160k miles or 10 years, which does seem high for a cambelt, and I won't be leaving it that long - be done at the next service 100k ish just to be sure.
Surely asking Peugeot, and them reccomending 160k or 10 years, they must have some responsibilty if anything goes wrong as I've followed their advice on it?
I suspect this would turn into a very dark subject with them though!

I understood the period was 7 years, but no sense leaving it too long unless you can afford a broken engine and the aggravation that comes with a breakdown. I think the expense of an earlier change is money well spent.

timing belt change

hi again successfully replaced my timing belt on my 407 2.0 hdi wasnt a bad job to do when i got stuck into it,if you have ever tackled a timing belt on a peugeot before its a piece of cake,one thing to mention before you remove the belt check the crank sprocket keyway,i marked mine with marker before i removed the belt and the keyway in the sprocket is machined wider than the key so its a loose fit,so ensure you turn the engine 1 full turn as when i turned mine it was 1 tooth out so i had to readajust the belt for a second time,just take care,dont rush,dont pay dealer prices,bought my gates belt kit for £72 inc vat

Hi do you use the pig locking kit to change the belt and if not how do you lock the pulleys??

Now if remember correctly you pin the crank pulley for a belt change and not the flywheel. I think Davidireland posted this a while back, am I right David?

what i do is mark the cam and crank sprockets with paint marks as long as they are lined up when you replace the belt all should be fine dont forget to turn 1 whole turn of the engine to ensure they line up exactly correctly all should be good

My Peugeot 407 2.0 Hd1 57 plate is seven years old in November and has done 73,000 miles. I have done 13,000 miles in last 4 years the first 60,000 by the original owner was manily motorway long distance stuff.

Anyway, I figured it may be getting near that time whent he belt needs changing whatver the handbook says! I intend to keep the car for a few more years.

I would be too wary of doing it myself so I would like to know how much would be a fair price?

I would want the belt changed along with the water pump. idlers and tension pulley bearings etc (ie worry-free motoring!)

Checking online prices range from £180, £400, £650 and even 450 euros!
I would prefer a Peugeot dealership to do it too, I just don't want to be ripped off.

Why would you want a Peugeot dealership to do it do you really believe they will do it better :)

Not saying they won't its just as likely a cheaper specialist will do just as good a job its not a hard belt to get right.
