Your car does have a timing belt, secondly the engine is an interference style engine. As for damage it is hard to say without pulling the head off to visually inspect it. Once you get the new timing belt on you can try to rotate the engine by hand and see that every thing moves freely( like watching the valves go up and down while rotation to do a comparison on how each one moves against the ther valves. Secondly do a compression test to make sure that you have good compression, if not it is time for a tear down to find out what is damaged. Hope this helps.

Many thanks for the reply.
Luckily there was no valvetrain damage, but the idler and tensioner bit the dust and needed to be replaced also. Back to running again: )
