Is the 1998cc engine as fitted to w203 until 2003 fitted with a cam belt or chain?

Is there any maintenance requirement specific to belt/chain?

TIA

Chain.

I personally feel the 2000cc Kompressor engine is better than the new mitsubishi sourced 1800cc kompressor engine.

:crazy:

Does that mean there's no change required @ 60K?

yes, there are either single or duplex chains, both last very long and i wouldnt worry about changing them until about 150K.... Duplex chains are usually repaced on commercial vehicles at about 250K...

Someone might correct me though, there may be some models that have a belt, but i dont think so!

Cheers
