I have a 2012 Ford Mondeo 1.6 diesel Econetic that has 100,000 miles on the clock. I have read conflicting advice on when the timing belt should be replaced on this vehicle. They range from 100k miles right up to 200k miles. This is quite a massive difference so can you advise what would be the correct time to get this work done on this make of vehicle please?

It’s best to take the advice of your local Ford dealer on this, but as far as we can tell the correct interval is every 10 years or 210,000km, whichever is soonest. However, it’s one of those things that, if it’s niggling you, you should just get done. Never a good idea to put a timing belt on the long finger.
