Belt or Chain

Post by p4n05 » 14 May 2019, 13:28

Good afternoon all,

I have been lurking around on the site for a while and decided to register and ask a question :)

Does anyone know if the 2012 model DS5 2.0 HDI has a cambelt or a cam-chain? I havent got the car with me to check the VIN as i m on the motorbike and away from home for a few days.

Many thnkas

We’ll need the reg or VIN to confirm, but all the 2.0 litre DS5s have timing belts.

Hi Marc,

thank you for replying. My reg is VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff].

Many thanks

Ok, so you have the DW10CTED4 engine. So chain to link the 2 camshafts and standard timing belt as normal.
