As anyone replaced a timing belt on a MK1 focus. What Tips can you give me and type of
special tools to use. I need to do this because of a crankshaft oil seal leaking , the car as 34000
miles on it and is an '04' plate. Any help appreciated ........andy ........

You will need a timing pin and steelbar 5mm thick to lock the camshafts
got mine from local motor factors

Be aware that there is no wood ruff key on a 1.4 , so use of a timing pin is essential , also the torque of the bottom pulley is critical a new bolt is recommended , i've known quite a few people use locktite as well.
