Had a brand new cambelt fitted today on my 1.8 tdi

Forgot to ask the mechanic, but when will i need to replace? hopefully a years :-)

Also had some good news when took the car , mechanic who worked on it said everything and anything that can go wrong with a focus was fixed during the mot, he did tell me but i forgot but basically he spent 5 days work on it getting everything done like new brake pads etc , well pleased :-) fingers crossed for a very cheap garage bill in the years to come

Have something to contribute?

Sounds like an expensive MOT, and EVERYTHING going wrong on the same MOT sounds a bit sus to me.

ford usually say every 10 years or 100,000 miles. whichever comes sooner, but always best to change at around 85k instead
