Default Cam Belt

Hi - 2009 Alto coming up to 50k miles and thinking it's time to get the cam belt changed. Does anyone know if it's a belt or chain please. Any info or advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks Colb. The only thing is that I was enquiring about the new style Alto from 2009 onwards not the older version. I cannot find any information at all about the cam belt/chain - it's not mentioned in the service schedule either so I'm a bit confused.

Still going to be a rubber belt and much the same procedure to change it on the later models, best to buy a timing belt kit which should include the tensioner idler pulley as well

Thanks again Colb. The more I'm looking into it I'm becoming convinced that it's a chain on the K10B engine and that's why it's not appearing in the maintenance schedule.

Confirmation would be great.

Seems the 4 cylinder model has a silent timing chain, still looking to see what the three cylinder model has fitted chain or belt?

Just had it confirmed by Suzuki dealer today that the 2009> Alto K10B 3 cylinder engine has a timing chain and not the rubber belt. That's why it doesn't appear in the service schedule then.

Why is everything so hard to find information on on this car?
