Every 75000-80000 miles or 5 years I think.

I thought it was 60k miles of 5 years but I havent got the information now, so I stand to be corrected. Had my 1.6 changed at 54k to be on the safe side as I was relocating. Mechanic said it was still in good condition. My manual was confusing on when to change it.

Better to be safe than sorry,

For my old EP2 (2003 1.6 3door) it was 150000 km or 8 years. Interesting that both figures are lower in UK.
