Can anyone tell me if my cars belt or chain? Iv searched and had mixed answers.

Its a 55 plate 2.0tdci, just over 90K on the clock so think its time to have it done.

What price can I expect to pay? (I wont take it to my local Ford dealer as there service is more than useless!!)

Thanks

got to agree 280 quid is a small amount giving a wrecked engine can cost 5 times as much

Yeah, im taking your advice and going to have it done. Im short on cash, but if it was to go id be even shorter. Can I trust them to check/replace the tensioner or is it something I need to mention?

My workmate had his cam belt changed on his Scenic by the local garage. Within a year it had snapped. The garage fitted a replacement engine at no cost to him.
