The recommended interval is 115,000 kilometres about 72,000 miles. On my original 1986 Espace it said that the life of the cambelt was the same as the engine. The first one lasted just over 130,000 miles and only failed because of oil contamination. Subsequently the recommendation was changed to 72,624 miles (a somewhat over-zealous conversion I suspect). The engine went on to cover 336,000 miles and was running superbly when I finally got rid of the car after 16 years.
