Hello guys,
how can I tell if I have a camshaft belt or camshaft chain?
One more thing...how can I know if there are any recalls for my Focus? (especcially that I have some issues with my fuel pump) and if there are any...as long as I'm living in Europe, Czech Republik... how can I change the recalled parts?

Thank you in advance,

you don't need to change the recalled parts, ford does the work, for free!

you have a timeing belt, i imagine thats what your asking about when you say a camshaft belt / camshaft chain. it's simple to see though, on the right hand side of the engine there's the black shroud you can just take that off and see the belt and cam gears.

as for seeing if you have recalls you can call a ford dealer and give them your vin, they can tell you.

i just replied to this in spi owners lounge...please don't double post.
The 2.0 SPI is a 'dry' engine, and has a timing belt.

And yes there are some recalls for that model & year focus.
