Hi Guys

I'm doing a cam belt on a focus (petrol engine) this weekend, has anybody got any tips? where are the timing marks?

yes I am a mechanic so have a good idea of whats involved, just a bit concerned about the timing marks.


Thanks in advanced.

Have something to contribute?

I have a 2000 W Focus 2.0 16V Petrol, and I am currently doing the cam belt, tensioner, idler, aux belt, coolant, thermostat, oil change and a leaking air con from the green O rings that are on the front of the unit. YYou can buy the green I=O rings from Halfiords for 3.29 a pack, though you have to buy two packs as the size you want only has one O ring in each pack, but it sorts the problem of the leak and at a good deal cheaper than a garage.

I bought an engine locking kit made by Laser, on Ebay new and delivered for 12, local stockists want 20.

It;s not a hard job, quite enjoyable and you can take your time, knowing that you are doing the work and to a decent standard.

Good luck with yours, it isn't too bad,
