Polo cambelt - csgmart
Hi - I have a 1996 1.4 Polo with 64,000 miles on the clock. When should I get the cambelt replaced? Many thanks.

If its never been done before then 2002 would have been a good time :)

It should be in your handbook, but typically every 6 years or 60,000 miles whichever comes first. Check what else needs doing at the same time usually pulleys, idlers, tensioner and soketimes water pump - everything else that the belt runs around.

According to the following, it's now every 40,000 or 4yrs.

Excellent - thanks for the information very interesting and useful.

How much would an independent charge for a cam belt change? (Including all the appropriate pullys and water pump).

As I am doing 2,000 miles per month it makes sense to be safe rather than sorry.
