    Default C5 twin turbo diesel timing belt replacement

    My '07 C5 2.2 diesel is coming up for it's 80,000 service. car is now 4 years old and has done 74,000k
    there is some confusion about when the timing belt should be replaced - service book says 100,000 Aust suppliment book says 80,000 or 4 years. Dealers seem unsure... does anybody have an opinion please? what should i do?
    thanks, Kev

    I have been looking at a 2005 2.2 and the belt was changed at 80 000.
    So that seems to be the local practice here.

    When in doubt throw it out. Change it. You're only talking 20,000 difference. Peace of mind.

    Perhaps I can confuse the issue further!

    Supplement to the Owner's Manual - Australian version - C5 Restyle. Under Citroen C5 diesel, it has, under Replace / engine timing belt - a dot in both the 8oKkm 48 mths and 100Kkm 60 mths columns.

    However, under RECOMMENDED SERVICE TIMES at the bottom of 2nd last page it states Engine timing belt replacement 100,000km or 4 years, whichever occurs first.

    My 2.2 TT is at 95,000km, and I plan to do the timing belt at 100,000km.

    Regards, Rossie.
