JTD Engine - Interference or non interference

Hi all,

really sorry if this has been covered before, i have searched but that turned up nothing

Ok then,

Is the JTD in the punto mk2 (2000 X reg) an interference or a non-interference design? that is if the cam belt snapped would the valves impact with the pistons or would there be adaquate clearance to stop any internal damage if the belt was to snap?


Thanks,

Matt
