BELT UP

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The tim­ing belt fit­ted to the 1.6- and 2.0-litre en­gines and needs to be re­placed ev­ery four years or 48,000 miles. If you don’t know when the belt was last re­placed just fit a new one as a mat­ter of course – it’s easy enough to do at home, or a garage will charge around £200 to do the job. The 1.6-litre en­gine isn’t an in­ter­fer­ence fit but the 2.0-litre unit is, so it’s espe­cially im­por­tant that you don’t take chances with this big­ger en­gine.
