Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus
There are no marks, special tools are needed when replacing the timing belt.
Posted on Sep 25, 2009
The 2000 Ford Focus has the Zetec engine, I believe. On the Zetec, the camshaft timing using notches carved out of the REAR end of the camshafts. With the valve cover off, you would need a special tool(we use a metal piece similar to the shape and size of a measuring ruler we all used in k-12 school) to insert into both camshaft rear notches to line up the timing. Other than that just make sure the crank is lined up. Presto!
Note: There are 2 ways those notches can line up, there's "right side up" and "upside down" ... The special tool should ONLY fit into the notches when they are right side up. The thickness of the tool would need to be about 2-3mm(I think).
