Look for 100 hp version (DTH engine code). It should have red TI in CDTI badge. And it is defo a belt not a chain

Belt and pump were changed at 70k miles with receipts, car is on 160k now.

Will get the belt changed, is it a big job?

Will get it changed.

This engine suppose to sound more like a tractor than the 1.9 version?

Has plenty of poke, but just a bit more noisey.
