When to change ?

Question : My car's timing belt snapped recently after 55,000km, and according to my mechanic, the timing belt manufactured by EON Tech stated it as 100,000km. I am surprised it snapped so soon. I have changed to a new belt manufactured by MMC, and according to the mechanic, it is best to change at 70,000km if it is stated 100,000km. What is the safest mileage to change?

Answer : Timing belts can snap at any time, even though the recommended replacement interval may be 70,000km or 100,000 km. The reason is that it is a wearing part, and it operates under quite harsh conditions such as dirt and heat. Secondly, if it is over tightened or misaligned for whatever reason; it will fail prematurely. The best way to prevent it from happening is to regularly check the condition of the belt, e.g. at every service, and once any abnormal wear such as cracks, or wear on cogs is seen, replace it as soon as possible.
