ford say 10 years or 100000 miles but i would do it earlier for piece of mind, 60 for parts and a couple of hours labour should cover it.

Just had my Mk1.5 TDCi (53 plate) done at approx 74,500 and it cost me 45.50 + VAT for the kit and 87.50 + VAT for the labour (which was just under 3hrs). In total it was 152.95.

Not sure if the belt kit is the same for yours (incidentally the part number was VKMAQ4108 if that is of any use to you).

This was done by a local guy who I use, not a Ford main dealer or anything. He showed me the belt he'd removed & said there was no signs of wear on it & so it would probably have lasted longer, but it's better to be safe than sorry!!

Think about getting it done before 80k, I lost 2 Mondeos to tensioner failures (same engines as the Focus) after I put off belt changes for "just another month or so". Both of these had complete belts when I stripped them down. Belt is 45-50.
