Cool 159 cam belt after 9 years, 105,000kms

2006 1.9jtdm, 150hp, 105,000kms. Bought 2nd hand with 60k 5 yrs ago, belt was still original.

Got my esteemed Alfa dealer in Milan to do it - he said the belt was still in good condition but water pump would only have lasted another 2000kms.

Mind you, the car only gets driven on weekends and the odd Holiday. Off to South of France soon so seemed appropriate to get it looked at.

Many more happy Alfa days.

I think the issue with short cam belt intervals in these cars is due to weaknesses in the waterpump not with the cambelt and it doesn't make sense to change one without the other. Sounds like you had a lucky escape
