I have a Focus Edge 1.6, just tripped the 90,000 mile mark and i got to thinking about cam belts cos my mate just recently had his replaced.
I havent had mine replaced since i got the car when 4 years back, and to be fair i had no reason to i suppose.
So a few questions really just to put my mind at ease -
1) Are there any symptons which the car gives which would potentially flag up that the cam belt has had enough?
2) When the cam belt does go i have assumed it just snaps and thats it?
3) Is there any mileage in asking my mechanic to take a look at the belt? or will this cause more hassle than anything? (Is the cam belt easily accessible for a mechanic??)
Any help / advice would be much appreciated
