My brother, who lives in Canada, is in the process of importing a 20-year-old TDI camper van from the UK. Does anyone know the timing belt replacement interval on the 2.5 TDI engines? (Unfortunately, I don't know the exact engine code. He sent me a photo album with a bunch of pictures and videos, but all I can tell is that it's a 2.5 TDI). It seems very well maintained but he's never owned a VW diesel before, so I need to warn him about keeping track of the timing belt mileage/age.
