Hello, This job is alot harder on your car than most that's for sure. It really depends on your mechanical ability and time vs the amount your willing to pay someone else. This job is easy if your not afraid to loosen the passenger motor mount and slid the engine forward about an inch with a pry bar. (Which sounds alot harder than it is) But the Hanes manual lists alot of things to do to get around the motor mount.
Per Haynes Manual.
Place Coolant Expansion Tank to one side.
Lift out Power Steering Reservoir and put to one side.
Unscrew Wiring Loom bolt and move wiring to one side.
Remove Ground Cable from Strut Tower.
Bent the ground bracket down as much as possible.
Move Canister Purge Valve to one side.
Remove Plastic Cover from Alternator.
Unscrew and the alternator mounting bolt nearest the engine first.
Unscrew the other retaining bolt until it has fully disengaged from the bracket (not possible to remove bolt from alternator at this stage).
Lift the alternator out, Pulley side facing upwards.
Take care not to damage or you might screw your surrounding components!
I would say if you dont work on cars or have mechanical ability you should prob take it to a profesional. I hope my answer helped more than it scared you....lol....Have a great weekend and please rate my answer if you felt it was helpful

SOURCE: Focus timing belt replacement.
This is a very very easy timing belt setup. first off you have to remove the valve cover. Then you have to remove the serp belt. Then remove anything thats in your way of the front cover. after you remove the crank pulley re-install the crank bolt. DO NOT LOSEN THE BOLT FOR THE TENSIONER!!!! now spin the crankshaft until the sproket aligns with the timing mark. now at this point the two camshafts should be aligned. now there is a special tool from ford that holds the cam shafts in place. all it is is a 1/4" peice of metal that goes on the left side of the cam shafts to hold them into place. if you mark the cams you wont need the tool. or if you can find something to fit in the left side of the cams that will work too. anyways after that its just the same steps in reverse. very easy to do.

all Zetec engines (2.0 DOHC) are NOT interference engines. There are deep reliefs cut into the top of the piston to clear the valves when they are fully extended. There will be no valve damage if the timing belt breaks on a Zetec engine.

With the DOHC you will need the Camshaft Sprocket Holding Tool and Camshaft Alignment Tool.
