Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone knows of a place in telford shropshire that does cambelt change and will need the variator doing too. I have 1.6 ti model 54 plate just gone 50,000 miles on the clock.

It did have a cambelt change at 36,000 it has not done a lot of miles since it was last done, i know it is 36,000 miles or 3 years which ever comes first but what is the likely ness that it could snap before the milage?

Thanks

Dom

no one knows ... But it's a common problem.

It's more likely to start to stretch or even the tensioner seize. It's unusual for the actual belt to snap in two. Quality control at the manufacturers is good, but things still go wrong!
