    I have a freelander 2 sd4, built Jan. 2011 just coming up to 60,000 miles and wonder when the timing belt will need changing and how big a job it is.

    mine was done at 105,000. but they reckon 150,000. which seems a long time to me.

    Just had mine done on its 10 year service. Had the coolant pump (which is driven by the cam-belt), aux drive belt and all the fluids changed at the same time so its an expensive one. Think the cam-belt is due at 10 years or 150000 miles so guess yours will be 10 years.

    I thought it was 10 years or 150000 kilometers not miles,

    Thanks for your replies, seems I have time to start saving.
    Any idea of cost.
    What is entailed, engine out or not.

    I don`t know of the cost as mine was done at the garage I bought it from .
    but I do know you don't have to take the engine out.

    Depends on who does the work, but £500-£700 would be about right.
    It's a timing belt on a Freelander, not Porsche. ;)
