156 2.0 TS Cam belt replacement parts and interval

The last time I replace the cam belt in my 156 I also changed the can belt tensioner and idler wheel, the balance belt and its tensioner the auxiliary belt, water pump and variator etc.

It's coming up time to look at replacing the cam belt again, can anybody tell me what else I should be replacing. For instance does the cam belt tensioner and idle wheel need to be replaced. Is the balance belt still good or should this be replaced.

When I did the first change out the car had done 130,000 Km. At that point I wasn't sure if the cam belt had been replace or not so I thought I had better do it to be on the safe side. It is now coming up to 190,000 Km, which about the time when the belt needs to be replace.

would appreciate some feed back on the interval between replacement and what needs to be replaced regularly.

You don't need to do the aux belt or the variator (unless it's making noise) but strictly speaking the rest should be done every 60,000km.
