hi bro, actually i do not know since it is shown with camcover open. assuming it is the TDCi engine, then we are now sure it uses a timing BELT and not chain as misinformed by some sales person. and i do not think the belt needs replacement at 60k km which is the end of the ESP. hence Focus owners have to bear the cost for replacing this belt which may be expensive smile_disapprove.gif

Yep, got to change with own cost, and heard is not cheap, but the manual never mention when will change the belting, so i have no idea, but some others country mention is 150K miles..... well i dont think with our hot climate can last that long.....
