2nd CAM Belt Question - mechanisedmyth
My Pug 405 tdi est was changed as per the book at 72K. It's now done 123K and is fine but should the second last like the first ?
2nd CAM Belt Question - Hawesy1982
I see no reason why the belt itself shouldn't last just as long, as long as it was the correct part and properly fitted.

You may want to check if the cambelt tensioner was changed with the first cambelt though, as i think it is a common point made on this site that the tensioners are not fitted 'for life', and can often be the cause of a belt failure themselves. I'd go for a 60k change anyway, if the belt died on 71k you'd kick yourself for not changing earlier and be potentially facing a £1000 engine rebuild.
