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

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.
