At what mileage should I change the Timing Belt for 2007 1.6 Vtec Ford Focus?

In theory 100,000 miles / 160,000kms.

Having said that, I have never heard of anyone suffering inconvenience, breakdown or large unscheduled expenses by changing the belt early. When you do it , dont cheapskate it. Do the tensioners , they are the cause of many of the problems anyway, by siezing and frying the belt.

60,000 miles is a great benchmark for replacement. you need a trusted technician to perform this so no damage occurs. when in doubt, refer to the owners manual.

Hi, I just need the interval for timing belt change

i think it is 105,000 miles. They go much longer. It is a free wheeling engine in the U S. No damage will occur.
