Re: Second cambelt change question
They did change the tensioners. The original ones were black plastic, the toothed part broke up on some cars, so they were changed for white plastic items. They still did not last the 72K miles so the lastest ones are now all metal.
I would still change at 36K or 3 years as the actual center bearing still appears to be the same in all versions, its just the material on the toothed part that has been changed.
Interestingly though the fixed tensioners are now plastic, when originally they were metal. I would have thought this would be a retrograde step, maybe someone knows better?
