[80] 100,000 miles ... and a red timing belt warning light



It may have been changed during its life at a mileage other than 60k.It is
possible to reset the counter to zero at any time.
Alternatively it may never have been changed!!!
What condition was the belt in?
I've changed a few now and even at about 20k past due date there has never
been any damage to the belt.

:I reached 100,000 miles today, and exactly on the dot the red "Timing Belt"
warning light came on. (1HD-FT engine)
: It's supposed to be changed at 100,000 km / 60,000 miles, which it duly
was, so I'm mighty glad that this list has taught me how to reset it via the
little pin on the dash - thanks guys!
: But I do think it's quite amusing that a UK spec truck, with an odometer
calibrated in miles, should trip this at 100k miles rather than at 60k!
: So if you've got the diesel engine, and have yet to reach a multiple of
100k in whatever units your odometer is calibrated in, be prepared!
