Carnet de Passage Belgium -> South America

September I am leaving for South America, gonna travel through Chili, Argentine, Bolivie and Peru. Taking my motorbike from Belgium to Chili (Valparaiso) BUT what about the Carnet de Passage ? So many contradictory information ; do I need it for South America, yes or no? Anybody who can help me on this ?
Looking at some official documents from the motorclub Germany or Belgium, you need it for South America.
