Does my Toyota Avensis 2.0 D-4D have a timing chain or a belt drive?

You've not told us the year, which is a key thing, here, as the current Avensis (first launched in 2009) uses a timing chain in its 2.0-litre diesel engine, but some versions of the previous version use a timing belt. The 2.0-litre diesel engine producing 116hp (engine code 1CD-FTV) made between 2003 and 2006 has a timing belt, for example, but the 127hp engine, made from 2006 to 2009 (code 1AD-FTV), has a timing chain.
The recommended change interval for the timing belt in that 1CD-FTV engine is 105,000 kilometres, regardless of time.
