The time to change your timing belt is based on either a mileage or a time e.g. 72,000 miles or 6 years. You should change the belt at whichever of these comes soonest. So, in this example, if you have only done 54,000 miles since the last timing belt change, but it has been 6 years since it was last changed, then it is time to change it, because it has been on the Freelander for 6 years. If, however, you have done 72,000 miles since the last timing belt change but it was last changed just 4 years ago, it is still time to change it again due to it having covered 72,000 miles.

Here are the intervals for changing your Freelander timing belt:

Freelander 1:
1.8 Petrol: Every 72,000 miles (120,000 km) or 6 years 

2.0 DI: Every 48,000 miles (80,000 km) or 4 years

2.5 V6 Petrol: Every 72,000 miles (120,000 km) or 6 years

2.0 Td4: Never – the Td4 has a timing chain and not a belt.

Freelander 2:
2.2 TD4: Every 150,000 miles (240,000 km) or 10 years

3.2 Petrol: Never – the 3.2 Petrol has a timing chain and not a belt.
