Do you have the booklet that gets a garage stamp with every service? It's usually listed in there.

Well, the 'Citroen maintenance and guarantee guide' says

No, Unfortunately I have no previous written service history or Citroen documentation with my car.
Surely it is documented somewhere what the Cambelt change is for the 1.0 Puretech engine is?...I can't see how it can be each individual car specific.

If you can PM me your VIN then I can have a look to see what I can find that Citroen have for the car.

For the EB0 engine, it's listed on the 112000 mile service or the 10 year service.

(EB0 is the 1.0 Puretech 3 cylinder PSA engine)

I couldn't find any specific info on the VIN but you may be able to give Citroen a call to see what they have listed as work already done on your car. There should be a service list for it.

Thanks for that, much appreciated.
The car has now done 28000miles which is confirmed by the one previous owner so it looks like I needn't worry about it needing to be changed for a long time. :D
When you say get in touch with Citroen, do you mean the local dealer or Citroen UK Ltd.

Incidently the previous owner, who I have been in touch with, said the car had full service history during her ownership and the service documentation was in car when she had it. So somewhere along the line it has gone astray.

Not a problem. If you have a good local dealer, try them first, but if they are not very helpful, try Citroen UK. They have a contact us link on their web site :)
