When to change my Ford Kuga's belt?

Does the 2014 Ford Kuga have a timing belt or chain and at what mileage should it be changed?  If so, does it give a warning when it needs to be changed or will it just snap?

Hi Tshegofatso,

The only 1.6-litre Kuga of that age is the petrol model, so we're assuming you mean that. It has a timing belt, which must be changed at least every 200,000 kilometres or 10 years, whichever comes first.

There will be no warning when the belt needs to be changed, so keep an eye on the mileage. If you let it go too far above the suggested change interval, the belt may snap, but that's not a very common occurrence.
