    Is it possible someone could tell me the lifespan of a cambelt for a R Reg
    Peugeot 306 TD.I'm not 100% sure but someone had told me that they last
    for about 70K,but I think more likely that 50K is the real figure.

    Regards Steve

    How long is a piece of string?

    It is entirely dependent on the type of driving you do.

    I am unaware of belts generally only lasting `70K`. The recommended changed
    interval is 72K (or 35K with heavy use driving). 50K would suggest serious
    taxi abuse.

    My local Pug dealer has quite a lot of confidence in a TD cambelt with
    motorway driving and off the record suggested it might well last for way
    over the 72K or 144K in my case - but obviously suggested I change it.

    If you can afford to change it - change it. The financial implication of it
    failing might well make your car a right-off.

    70 or 72K miles are almost identical values.
    It depends of use and driving (see the recommended servicing intervals for
    classic or heavy servicing, in your owner's book), usually a cambelt on a
    XUD is given for 72k miles (120,000 km) or 5 years.
    Many mechanics here recommend a change at 100,000km (62k miles).
