I've just found a guide that explains the potential problem encountered when replacing teh cambelt on our engines:-

Problem: Risk of valve damage due to incorrect camshaft timing after belt replacement.

As on most Peugeot engines the crankshaft and the camshaft can be locked into position by inserting pins through the respective pulley and sprocket. On models with harmonic balancers the outer section usually moves its position relative to the center. The reference hole provided must therefore never be used to set the crankshaft.
Although this problem was first discovered on a 306 XU7JP engine, it can occur on any model, which is fitted with a similar pulley.
See in the section below how to correctly position the camshaft.

Setting the crankshaft position.
First lock the camshaft into position in the normal fasion. Position the crankshaft so that the key-way points to the bolt on the left
(90 angle from the base of the engine block).
With this alignment the pistons are at stroke. Now fit the belt.
Always turn the engine over by hand to ensure there is no interference between the pistons and the the valves.

I found this text and photos on the internet and don't take any responsibility for it being accurate etc etc.

I have since read in a Peugeot Manual that the correct way to change the cambelt is to attempt to fit the cambelt locking pins and if the lower pulley doesn't line up, simply replace it so that it can be trusted.
