Alfa 156 1.9JTD sportwagon cam belt changes?

Can anyone tell me the frequency of a 1.9 JTD sportwagon cam belt change frequency. I have one where I believe it was changed at 79.5k in 2008. Just done 108k now. Any advice welcome.

The offical rule from Alfa is 5 years or 72k miles (which ever occurs first) but most use 4 years 60k miles also you need to replace the waterpump at the same time - there is a thread related to waterpump issues.

As CJO said. 4 years and 60k is regarded as the safe and sensible option due to the waterpump failure issues

Is this the JTD 8v or 16v engine????? If 16v then if the waterpump hasn't been changed before get it done now. May as well get the cambelt/tensioner/idle bearing done at the same time as all needs to come off to get it done.

8v engine waterpump though much more robust - but get it changed anyway next time you get the belt changed (72,000 miles or 5 years whichever occurs first).
