Focus MK3 timing/cambelt replacement

Recommended Posts

2012 1.6 titanium petrol focus mk3 72k on the clock

I believe the 'recommendation' is 10 years or 100,000 miles

Do these fail prematurely? Or should I get the belt replaced now including the water pump?

Should anything else be replaced?

Can the complete kit be purchased from Ford?

Does anyone know the finis part no please

These are 'Maximums' not an actual target to try and reach. The belt on a 2012 car is due now regardless of the mileage.

Found this on eBay, German seller, genuine Ford

Very important to realise that the belt is already 4 years old. Packed date 13th Sept 2018.

So long as you accept that the belt will only have a working life of 6 to 7 years before it has to be replaced again.

Thanks! Didn't notice that! I'll buy directly from Ford hopefully it's new stock
