1998 Volvo V70 XC Question: What is the replacement interval for the serpentine belt on a 1998 Volvo V70 XC?

Timing belts on this vehicle are due every 70,000 miles. So you have about another 40,000 miles to go until its due again.

I probably misled you. It's the Serpentine belt, I.e., the belt that transmits power from the crankcase to the AC compressor, water pump, and alternator, that I meant. What is the replacement interval for this "auxiliary" belt on my 1998 Volvo V70 XC? Many thanks.
its due anytime

Many thanks. I thought that because I have only driven the car less than 30k miles, I could wait. I guess you advise otherwise?

Have a look at the belt, the side that touches the pulleys has a ribbed surface. If it shows any cracks in the ribs, replace the belt.
