Theres no mileage to change just to check it, the way to check the belt is to look at the inside of the belt and you will see grooves in which the belt rides, if you see cracks in the belt then its time tom replace. the belt should be looked at every oil change it thats no time to check. hope this is helpful.
WELL REALLY THEY ARE RECOMMENDED SERVICE INTERVALS ..YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO IT BUT IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO BE SURE THAT YOU'RE VEHICLE HAS ITS LONGEST TROUBLE FREE LIFE..SOME MANUFACTURES REQUIRE ALL THE SERVICES TO BE PERFORMED ON TO IN ORDER TO HONOR THEIR POWER TRAIN WARRANTY..THE REASON IT MIGHT BE SHORTER MILEAGE RATINGS IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD IS PROBABLY DUE TO CLIMATE IN THOSE AREAS OR EVEN PERHAPS EMISSIONS REGULATIONS
2003 ?? then yes its advisable to change the lot regardles of mileage ,the water pump iam not so sure about its just that its driven by the timing belt and if it goes wrong and leaks its big job to change ,but if vehicle has had antifreeze in it from new then i wouldnt bother ,yes i would wiggle the drive shaft whilst belt is off and if no play then leave it alone but you know the dealers ,someone has to pay the suited and booted sales staff with their gelled up hair and the secretarys make up and new clothes
Depending on the mileage on the vehicle could mean a couple of different things. Usually oil change. Sometimes service transmission, or timing belt. You can call your local Mercedes dealership and talk to the service department and give them the mileage on the car and they will tell you exactly what you want to know.

BMW recommends that the timing belt be changed every second
Inspection ii, or every 4 years on cars that have low mileage. Most of
the rest of the industry has timing belt changing intervals ranging
from 40,000 miles to 60,000 miles. It is better to change the belt at a
lower mileage than at a higher number. The timing belt must be
replaced every time the belt tensioner is loosened. Do not reinstall a
used belt. Reusing a timing belt, even one with low mileage, is not
worth the chance of having a belt break and damaging the engine.
Hi there.What he is probably meaning is you have an interference motor to which means if the belt breaks it will bend the valves or if changing it and not getting timed right will also bend the valves. So if your doing it your self use extreme caution and make sure befor removal of the belt that the timing marks are aligned and the gears do not move until the belt is back on.Rotate motor over slow by hand with belt exposed 2 full revolutions to see if your timing marks a in fact dead on.. The mileage on the truck are close to time to replace.You dont want that thing breaking the belt while its running.You know the facts now.I hoped this helpes you and have a great day...
