Customer Question

Customer: We have a 2004 Volvo xc90 2.4d Diesel. 184000 km
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Yes, Service booklet is in different language and for what I can see there has never been a service beyond 112000 km. I want to know if a tensioner belt should be changed at this point? (Timing belt)
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Volvo Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Yes.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Basically this Xc90 was purchased used in europe and service records had been kept up at a volvo dealer up to 112,000 km. I would like to know if any of those services would have replaced the tensioner belt (timing belt) We already replaced the transmission and don't want any surprises like a tension belt failure. Unfortunately the service manual is in german and my translations see oil and filter changes, front brakes but nothing indicating a major service like tension belt replacement. I usually do this at 100,000 miles in the states but have never had a diesel motor before and don't know what the major services are and at what kilometer duration. Thanks for any advice.
