I think that I read / heard somewhere before that Citroen recommend 100,000 or ten years for the HDI, which to me seems like a very very long time!

I'm sure one of the more qualified mechanics will be along to confirm the right time to change


--------------------
| Mk5 Golf 1.6 FSI | Honda CR-V SE Sport Gen 2 |'69 Minivan | Jaguar XJ6 Executive |
  • Cylinder 1 is nearest the Timing belt, 4 being the furthest (i.e. 4 is on the gearbox side)
    Firing order is 1-3-4-2 (see above for more details) - 2.0 8v

| Skoda Felicia | Bora PD130 | Golf 3 TD | Bora V6 4Motion | Golf 3 Cabrio | Toyota Corolla |

Just to confirm Citroen Recommend 100,000 miles for the 2.0 hdi, but personally I would recommend changing at 80,000.
Most petrol c5's are recommended by Citroen to be changed at 80,000 miles but again I would recommend doing around 70,000 miles. Also be sure to change fan belt regularly if it's diesel because Citroen fan belts have a habit of getting caught around the crank pulley causing timing belt failure.

Engine
Timing belt and pulley should be replaced at 60-70,000 miles
