They are the same.

There is a really great website that explains how stuff works and the bit about camshafts is here auto.howstuffworks.com/camshaft.htm
Cam Belt / Timing Belt - martin
I keep going on about this one, but it's bugging me!

I am not entirely sure when the timing belt was last changed on my TDI. I have recipts for 60k & 120k change of cam belt, but is this the same job? MY motor has now done 160k, so if the cam belt is the timing belt then i am ok until 180k, right?

What gets me wondering is that the bills for the older cam belt changes, only came to about £200 odd with other work done alongside. Is this about the right price for a cam/timing belt change? Is a cam/timing belt absolutely the same thing?????

many thanks
