Re: Espace V6 Cam Belt

This is an old thread but needs some additional info. My 2005 F4R 2.0 non turbo driver's handbook says 70K miles or 5 years for the cam belt.

BUT if it is used for short journeys or low speeds the belt should be changed at 40K miles.

Mine was done at 58K on time and to be honest all of the belts looked pristine but you can never tell. I also replaced the water pump but not the dephaser pulley.

Guess what's now showing signs of trouble.
Currently in Ben Detoy's garage:
Espace 2,0T (2005) - BMW R1200GS Adventure (2008) - Suzuki GT750 "Kettle" (1976) - Cannondale Jekyll 1000 (2004)
