usually you should do it for peugeot diesel at 122000 miles along with water pump and the tensioner roller that runs under the cambelt too. But to be on the safe side do it at 100000 and save the fortune.
It took me (DIY job) about 6-8 hours as i wanted to save 450 pounds.

Rotate the engine so that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the
compression stroke. Check that the timing marks are aligned on the
camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. An access plug is provided in the cam
belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removal
of the cover or any other parts. Set the crankshaft to TDC by aligning
the timing mark on the crank pulley with the TDC mark on the belt
cover. Look through the access hole in the belt cover to make sure that
the timing mark on the cam drive sprocket is lined up with the pointer
on the inner belt cover.
The spring cannot be used to set belt tension; a wrench must be used on the tensioner assembly.

Hard to explain here... but I believe that car also has the balance shaft which needs to be timed as well. The camshaft has 2 lines which line up to the top of the head, and a "up" or "top" mark at the top.
Crank is set to 0 degrees.

SOURCE: timing belt gets loose after
with the belt off negative side of battery disconnected, check
all pulleys especially the ac compressor pulley, make sure they
turn easily and there is no binding, make sure there is no oil
residue or any other liquid on pulleys. make sure you have the
correct belt size for your car and that the belt layout is correct.

If any binding is felt when adjusting the timing belt tension by turning the crankshaft, STOP turning the engine, because the pistons may be hitting the valves.
Never allow antifreeze, oil or solvents to come into with a timing belt. If this occurs immediately wash the solution from the timing belt. Also, never excessive bend or twist the timing belt; this can damage the belt so that its lifetime is severely shortened.
