Does my 2002 MINI need a Timing Belt change?

Hello everybody,
I have a 2002 MINI with 92,000 miles on it (but I got a free new engine after 52,000 miles after a mechanic screwed up an oil change). Do MINI's need a timing belt change like other cars, and if so, when? Thanks! Carter

Um...no. The tritec engine cams are chain driven.

However, the accessory belt does get changed at inspection 2.
