*Recommendations provided are indicative estimates only, and may not reflect actual intervals achieved in service as there are numerous factors that can affect component wear. As such, recommendations are to be used as a guide only. The list of components is not exhaustive and other components will also be required to be replaced throughout the life of the vehicle. Please refer to your vehicle’s Service Booklet for further details. Components that have recommended replacement intervals should be regularly monitored as part of routine maintenance, and ensure ongoing servicing and maintenance work is performed and components replaced when they show wear even if the wear is evident prior to the recommended change out time.
