Timing Belt

At what mileage or age should the timing belt be changed on a 2000 S500?

You have a W220 S-Class and I'd search or ask on that forum. Scroll down from here and look under the sedans heading.

You never have to change the timing belt. Unlike Honda, Mercedes uses chains.

But you would eventually need to check the chain for streching and also replace the chain guides.
