Default Suzuki forenza 07

HI I'm new to this forum and I really need some help. My daughter heard a noise day before timing belt broke , what could have caused the belt to break. Do I need a new engine? How to tell if cams or lifters etc is damaged. Thanks

Lack of maintenance or something failed causing it to break. The noise she head was the either the belt starting to let go, or one of the idlers seizing.
Belts should be checked every 30,000 miles, must be replaced every 50-60,000. I recommend to my customers changing every 30,000 as its cheap insurance.

There will be damage, its an interference engine.
Remove the head. DO NOT try to crank it or turn it over, that will cause more damage, If you're lucky its just a couple of bent valves, if not, it could be a rebuild or a replace.
