The intervals for changing such parts is given in the manual somewhere towards end. Check that if it says so then you better get it done.

If it's under warranty..then it was great " Free ", But since you will pay 5000, There is nothing called as company policy, unless you approve..! Sometimes its not neccessary to change irrespective of the Owners Manual..You need to see the part yourself to ascertain the need.
