Default Saab 95 2002 Timing Chain or Belt replacement?

Hi,
another question?
When do you change the timing belt or chain at a 2002 Saab 95, 2.3?
My Saab has approx. 85k miles and I don't want any bad surprises.
The leaking problem is enough


All help is appreciated.

Thank you, Markus

Change the belt every 60k miles before it snaps and causes a big piston or overheating job

the 2.3 is the 4 cyl - it has a timing chain - usually good for at least 250K miles
