Timing belt on 2000 Volkswagen Golf

I have a seat leon 1.4l, year 2000. When do I need to change the timing belt, it is now at 98000 miles. Is this car an interference or non interference engine?

I just see 4 cylinder 2.0 liter, 1.8 liter turbo and 2.8v6 engines for a golf. I am not sure what leon 1.4 means. If it is either of the 4 cylinders, then I would do the belt by 90,000 or 6 years, so your are due. the 2.8 v6 has a timing chain so no worries there.

You have a timing belt you don't have to worry but if you really want to be safe change it at 110K
