hi first post just bought a 2002 model, was told the engine is a merc the type used in their sprinter vans - is this true?
And is there anyways easily checking the cam belt for wear?
Sounds as tho its one hell of a job the replace and expensive too bearing in mind the frequent need for replacement

No, it was based around an old mazda lump, but updated with turbo/16v head.
Cambelt, they can look fine up until the point they snap, repalce at recommended intervals.
