Thought you might be over your head commenting on a Ford. LOL Top of the evening to you sir.

I have had a look, the only thing that looks similar is in the pic, and it looks like a belt, not a chain

That there is the serpentine belt. The timing chain is under the cover behind the pulleys.

Tammie, if u have the 2.3 engine, it has a timing chain. If it's 2.0, it's a timing belt

Ok, what about a 1.8

What year?

2003 Rowefast.

I don't show where there is a 1.8L engine in a 2003 Ford Focus, but because of the size of the engine I would say it has a timing belt.

This car is not in the USA.

Same as the Mazda L engine. The Ford 1.8 in Europe has a chain driven valve train. There is no timing belt to worry about.
