remove cover look at belt. if it looks bad replace it if not wait. water pump no reason to throw that in too. it's not on or behing the T-belt.
From my understanding your european focus is an interfierence motor. A normal US non SVT is non interfierence.

I think I would replace before 120k. Probably closer to 100k. At this point your(the belts) worst enemy is the time factor. That rubber is now 10 years old.
Bottom line, get it replaced as soon as you can to prevent the worst.

Change everything freemind mentioned at the same time, since it's getting done anyways.

Normally the belt is recommended for 100k iirc and would recommend you do the rest at the same time. Like mentioned above, parts wear out and at different times. If you bought your car with less than 100k and you dont have a service record/receipt of the job being done, then it might be due if you have more miles than that now.

I own a Ford Focus which is now 10 years old but has only done a genuine 30,000 miles. I would ask for opinions as to when the Timing Belt should be changed?
