Hi, does anyone know where I might get a L.H. vanity cupboard door from as auto-sleeper say it is no
longer available. Ours was missing when we recently bought it. Also can anyone tell me when the cam belt needs changing please.

Hi Richard

Think you will be lucky to get a replacement door to be honest, cirencester plastics used to supply Auto-Sleeper with the sinks and vanity units etc, but I believe / think these were taken over by CAK Tanks confused3
Have you looked in their catalouge, might be worth a look? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

As for the cam belt I presume your Palermo is a 2.8 Boxer?
I would expect it be be 60-70k but to be absolutely certain you are probably best to contact your local Peugeot dealership who will soon advise up!

Cambelts usually have an age limit as well - something like 60k or 5 years whichever is soonest, again check with dealer.

Thanks to all who replied, I will try CAK Tanks and although our Palermo has only 25,700 miles I agree that if in dought it would be better to have it changed.
Thanks again to everyone.
PS. I am a retired electrician so if I can help anyone I will do my best.

Hi Richard,
On my 06 van, the cam belt reccomendation is 5 years or hundred thousand miles, whichever comes first, unfortunatly, it was the five years, garage told me that the water pump was weeping when they took the belt off, and after I got the bill, the water pump wasn't the only one that wept. hugegrins

The water pump replacement at the same time is a common occurance. Why they have to hide the water pump behind the cambelt I can't understand, it used to be driven by a separate belt, where you could get at it when you needed to i.e. when it weeped, or seized. Now, even if it isn't weeping, you may as well change it while having the cambelt done, otherwise it will only need doing shortly afterwards and have the cost of a cambelt replacement all over again.
Then again, why have an entire engine at the mercy of a belt made of fibre when chains lasted the life of an engine (usually)! Many modern cars have gone back to a chain, the Avensis I just got rid of had a chain (the 2.2 version - the 2.0 version still had a belt) and don't get me onto 'dual-mass flywheels'!!

The change period for the cambelt on my 2004 van is given in the handbook as "consult your dealer". The dealer should get the answer from Peugeot so why not put the answer in the handbook in the first place???
I consulted a Peugeot van dealer and was told 96000 miles or 8 years whichever is the sooner.
I wonder if I had asked a different dealer would I have received a different answer. In other words will all dealers sing from the same hymn sheet? And that hymn sheet will have been written by Peugeot.
I had my van cambelt changed at 6 years and 31,000 miles. Better safe than sorry.

I think that it is fairly common practice for dealers to replace the cambelt when they sell you the vehicle. They make a good profit and to ensure their guarantee if they give one, does not get badly stung, they replace the belt.
It may be worth checking if your supplier has already done this; could save a chunk of money if they have.
