Consulting your owner's manual should give you an idea of how to replace a belt depending on which belt it is that needs changing. Assuming it is the timing belt that needs to be changed it is a simple process to undertake, though if you are unsure of working on motor cars it may be better to take the vehicle to a garage for professionals to carry out the work.

Firstly check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing belt. Replacement for a Ford Focus is at 120,000 miles. You need to locate the timing belt and examine it for breaks, damage, fraying, worn spots or looseness.

Disengage the negative battery cable in all models. Detach the passenger inner splash-shield and wheel cover, the accessory drive and timing belts, the tensioner and the crankshaft pulley. Remove the spark plugs, catalytic converter and idler pulley in 2000 and older Ford Focuses. Undo the retaining fasteners and lift the timing belt cover off the engine. Align the crank and camshaft timing marks. Older models call for undoing the water pump pulley and valve cover before locking the camshaft in place. Release the tensioner's bolt. Turn the arm to the right 14 degrees and place a 1/8 inch drill bit in the opening. This secures the belt tensioner in place; you can now take the belt off.

Once you have fitted the new belt you can re-assemble the parts which have been removed in the reverse order.

Hope helps.
