Yes, 80K is the interval but one would hope you have good evidence the belt was changed at that mileage. I don't know what other parts should be changed at same time, probably tensioner & waterpump so worth a check.
It's going through the mot in 2 week so will probs need work done to it to pass so will get the belt changed and what ever else needs done

Hi, I have just bought a MK1 with 100,000 on the clock...the timing belt was changed at 70,000 miles according to what is written on the engine...I am always cutious and was wondering what time interval the water pump should be replaced,to save destroying the engine.Any advice would be appretiated,thank you.
If the MOT is due then just remember that when they do the emmissions test they rev the nuts off it. They will accept no reposibility is it breaks and wrecks your engine.
We have always changed our timing belts much sooner than recommended. I do ours on the DW8 engine at 50000mile intervals. It may seem a tad expensive but it is cheaper than a knackered engine. If I was buying second hand I would change it straight away regardless of what has been said by the previous owner.
