cambelt mileage change

Recommended Posts



Has anyone else had a cambelt failure on a 1.5 deisal fiesta, the one i was about to buy had only 65000 miles with full service history is this not a bit early for one of these to go?


I suppose it means a near new engine rebuild?  good job i never took delivery, any advise welcome!


When is the right time to change a belt? or is it just pot luck after 50000 miles


Cheers  mike

Looks like they missed this one, anyway not bothering with sport van now as engine is to be replaced, buying one with 24000 miles on safer bet I think
