Hi guys

For the life of me I cannot locate in my manual or sevice booklet when the cambelt on my Cmax needs to be changed.

It's a 2005 plate ford focus Cmax 1.6 Zetec petrol. Has 40k on the clock.

Can anyone advise? Also, why isnt this important info in any of the booklets??

Thanks

If it's a belt I'd get it done at about 70 - 75k, if it's a chain they can run forever but I'd recommend about 100k.

hi if i am not wrong its 10 years or 100,000 miles whichever comes first,however you can give your local ford dealer a call just to confirm and give yourself peace of mind.

Why isnt this info available in the manual or service booklet?? Just looked on Ford Etis and it says 100,000 miles/8years. Well its 7 years old and only has 40,000....so im assuming I need to change in year 8?
