Hi
I have an 06 MK 2 Focus I.6 LX TDCI 90, I took it to a garage today to get a price for fitting a cam belt. the guy at the desk said it maybe a chain not a belt, he had a look and said he could not tell what it was, ( needless to say I won't be taking it to him for the job ) Is there anyway I can see if it's a belt or not, without taking things apart? this was not a Ford agents but it was a big garage, not a one man band, a bit worrying.

cheers

John.

Thanks both for your replys, in fairness the guy he said that he thought this was about the time they changed from belt back to chain, don't know if that's right or not, thanks again.

cheers

John.
