Just ticked over 100k this week on my 11 plate 2.0 CDTI. Had cam belt and water pump changed a couple of months ago. Was told the water pump had just started to leak! Not really had any major issues, just water and tear. Although I dunno how common it is for rear springs to snap? Failed last mot on that, only snapped on the bottom coil so never noticed/felt any difference though.

Rear springs are very common I changed to lesjofors when one snapped thankfully saw it before the M.O.T so no fail.

I think you'll find the cambelt is recommended to be changed at 60,000 miles / 6 years. Yours is overdue.

Waterpump is separately driven, but when my belt was changed at 54,000 miles, they discovered the waterpump was leaking and changed it anyway.

Rear springs seam quite common on cars nowadays then. My old car was a E46 320d m sport saloon bmw. It was common on them, had to change them. Also my bro had a coupe one at the same time and had to do his aswell

100K or 6yrs for cambelt which ever comes first.

However Haynes recommends 4yrs 40,000.

I had mine done at 6yrs.

12 plate, 96,000 on the clock.

It had the Dual mass replaced about 50k, shocks at 50k and a few other things under warranty by previous owner. Can't say exactly anything anymore, the dog at the records. Seriously. Pretty such cam belt & water pump got done too, but can't remember what was on it.

Going to get the cam & water pump done anyway, to be on the safe side of things.

Personally, had to replace the rear coils (one each side over two years), had to do the offside drive shaft & CV's earlier this year (going to do the nearside too, might as well that was a PITA at Christmas time!)

I'm also needing to repair some bin damage to the side & respray. Considering doing something other than the silver, will see what is cheap!

Garage told me that is no longer the case. 60k or 6 yrs.

If my cam belt was done at an approved dealer & put on the FSH, would vauxhall have a record?

Would be good to know if I'm doing this a little early or not, currently have a lot of money leaving my bank account.

I have a 2011 with 73k on it. Did my cambelt and waterpump at 65k.

Originally thought it was 100k or 10 years for the belt, as thats what it is on the Insignia, but apparently the Astra with the same engine was revised to 60k or 6 years.

if thats the case mine is definately overdue. it is booked in for the 1st week of august for cambelt and pump, main stealer quoted £579 for belt and £158 for water pump.
as i am running 215 bhp changing them has become a priority.

Yes they would.

I had to ring main dealer on the Mrs last mokka as there was conflicting info as to if it had been done or not Even that wasn't simple and confused things even more as they had a totally different mileage down for when the cam belt was done.

The timing belt is 6yrs or 100K whichever comes first. I think people are confusing 6yrs with 60,000 miles (as they expect most cars to do 10,000 miles per year).

The 2.0 LBY is 6yrs or 80,000 whichever comes first.

Pretty immaterial really though as the OP's car is 6 yrs old and the belt change is now due regardless what mileage it's done.

I'm only going on what the VX garage told me last year about the revised mileage recommendation change. Vx-Mad-G has also said the mileage has been revised from 100K to 60K

I forgot to say my 1.7cdti is a 63 plate (2014 registered)
so belt was changed at 4 yrs old (100,000)

my Vaux dealer said it's still 100,000 or 6 yrs (asked them today)
