You might actually find its a chain and might not need replacing. That was my first thought whem I bought mine at 49k miles but when I took it to my local Ford dealer for a once over/servoce and asked him about changing it he told me it was a chain not a belt and that it wouldnt need replacing unless it ever developed a fault which he assured me was rare

Have just ordered a Haynes Manual for Fiesta 2002 -2008 so that should tell me if its a belt or a chain.

Good news is that 100k is Ford recomended for change of belt.

As i only do 2000 miles a year , i think i will leave it for a while.

btw it runs ok now i have taken the tyre pressure down to 29 lbs/sq for a load of under three people. The tyres were pressured up to 37 lbs/sq which is for a load of three people or more and it ran like a bag of nails.

I'd be surprised if any of the petrol engines use a chain, but then maybe they did on some engines?

Did they make a 1.3 mk6? As far as I know it was only a 1.25, 1.4 or 1.6 petrol? All of these I believe are belt too

Ah wait a sec yours is a pre facelift? They must have used the old 1.3 in them to start with. The later 1.25, 1.4, and 1.6 engines are all belt I believe.

To answer the above, you can tell if its. Belt or chain by looking at the cam belt casing.
