it's a timing belt and it needs to be changed ( recommended ) every 100K km's

I'd consider 100K Kms as pushing it. Some ppl change it every 60K kms, or every four years, whichever comes first. When you change the belt, you also change the water pump, tensioner pulley and if you have any oil leaks from the front of the motor, the cam seal and optionally the crank seal (but that last one's harder to change).

The Haynes manual says 60,000 miles for timing belt change, while some prints of the Bentley say 60,000 kms. If you don't know when it was last changed, then change it *RIGHT NOW*.
