Peugeot 306 cambelt

Discussion in 'Peugeot 306' started by Roy Austin via, Apr 6, 2005.

  1. Hi could do with some advise, just purchased a 306 turbo diesel, could
    someone tell me how often the cam belt needs to be replaced, the car has
    105k on the clock, was told when i purchased it that it was change about 6
    months ago when the vechicle had its last service but looking through the
    service history have no record of any service since 2003 when the cam belt
    was changed at 75k.

    Also if i turn the heater on i get a windscreen full of dust and a horrible
    smell, as far as im aware its down to the heating matrix could anyone
    confirm this???

    Any help appreciated!!!

    miles under adverse conditions.

  3. If the smell is a kind of burnt pepper smell it could be that the starter
    motor has got stuck, my son had this smell for around 5 months, (his car I
    mean) now I have the car and solved it by changing the starter, the smell
    is much less now but hasn't gone completely so I think I will have to clean
    out the heating system.

    cambelt is 72k normal use, 36k adverse use! According my Pug employed
    GTI-6 is recommended to have it done every 36k due to high break rate.
