Hi Prodger, the cam belt on your B Max runs in oil and only needs replacing at 120 000 miles, so i dont think that you need to worry for a while yet!

So it's a chain rather than a belt ?

What is the belt made of, surely a rubber belt wouldn't last long in oil ?

Hi all, thats why its important tu use only the correct engine oil. Willow is also correct that the belt lasts for 150 000 miles and not 120 000 as i had posted, (was relying on my fading memory!).

I do wonder if realistically an Ecoboost engine would last that long. Tiz only a 1ltr after all

They have been shown to last 150k miles on the bench. In practise, I do wonder.

Whilst the belt should be changed at 150k, these things usually come with an x years or y miles stipulation. Not sure what x is equal to.

The cambelt is designed to last the life of the engine, ie 150,000 miles.It looks a pig of a job to change.
