Timing belt replacement

Hi. Is there a rule of thumb on when the timing belt is recommended to be replaced? I am looking at a 2000 Range Rover HSE with 94,000.
Thanks

Mine actually broke at 105,000 miles and bent a valve. Not a hard job for DIY, otherwise find and independent to do the job, if money is a concern.

Had to change oil pump at 110,000. It went out. Changed the timing chain at the same time. Easy. Good time to change water pump when you do your chain.

Timing chain is the answer on that one. There really isn't a prescribed replacement interval on that part that I know of.

I mentioned mine went at 105K. Actually chain broke straight across all 7 links. Seems that a dealer in US ( confirmed dealer services in owner's manual) replaced the waterpump and put a long bolt in wrong place ( for a short time ) and broke the inside reinforcement around bolt , probaly tried to start engine, then changed bolt after which the engine could turn over. After a while the broken aluminum bits wedged in the chain and broke three teeth on the crank gear which then messed the timing. After a while the chain continued to fall apart and scraped the inside of the timing cover, luckily not enough to go through before it fell apart and bent a valve. Some US techs must be under pressure to get done on time and not to watch the details on re-assembly. Never understood these time issues as I worked for a Jag shop and could get done under time and not forget a single bolt or washer. My Discovery has 112K and runs quite well. I did change the timing chain and gears in my 88 RRC for 110K maintenance and the chain was getting loose.

Why are replacing you timing belt kit? Did it broke or something? How many miles did already drove?

Typically timing chain lasts long. I dont think it is one of the preventative maintenance parts. If you need one:
