Default Timing Belt ID

I'm considering a 2007 Cruiser purchase. The seller doesn't know if the belt has been changed. I suggested he pry open the cover and copy whatever he sees written on the belt and forward it to me:

462 1844 and 2876 088

Does anyone have a followup suggestion on how to read these numbers?

I thought of calling or emailing Gates to see if they recognize the tag but wanted to try here first.

Thanks

4621844 is the MOPAR part number for the TB

MOPAR (SHORT PART #)
Engine Timing Belt
Part# 4621844

May or may not have been replaced, it could be the original or a MOPAR replacement. I don't know how they marked the OE belt.

4621844 is the part number for an OEM belt:



But that still won't tell you if it had been replaced, as they could have replaced it with an OEM belt. More importantly, was anything else replaced at the same time (timing belt, water pump, tensioner, idler pulley, cam seals, crank seal, center motor mount with new bolt) because any of these parts could fail and not just the belt, that's why they should be replaced as a total job.

I hope he didn't "pry open" the cover but removed the 3 bolts to gain access.
