I've used the search function on here and done a general skoot around the web, but can anyone confirm if this model has a timing belt or chain? If belt, I'm guessing it needs doing around 75k, right?
A friend has a "51" plate Mondeo 2.0 TDCi LX (115). Her tame mechanic was talking about timing belt replacement - until then I was sure they had chains not belts (engines should be held together with bits of metal, not elastic bands)
I did just check this to make sure I wasn't going loopy, but...
So ive ordered the parts and im planning the following over the next few weeks;

From the manual the procedure;

2. remove rocker arms on right hand camshaft
3. Remove chain tensioner
4. Cut old chain
Started stripping the 190E yesterday (M102 1.8 8v) in order to replace the head gasket. All going fairly smoothly so far, just need to remove a last few nuts/bolts from the inlet side and take out the chain tensioner/cam etc.
I haven't touched the pin for the timing chain guide...
I believe the above needs replacing on the 3.2 M104 engine in our '95 estate so I fancy doing it myself (seems straightforward enough as long as you keep an eye on the timing chain itself and dont let it jump a sprocket)
I have printed out a number of links on american sites but wondered...

I have eventually got round to doing a static timing today. I locked off the camshaft and this was where the timong mark on the crank pully was
For those in the know, is this to far advanced...

hi all, in the process of lifting the head off my 2003 c200 1.8 kompressor, having got to the stage where i need to remove the tensioner, now all i can see on the side of the chain cover is a 4cm diameter black rubber circle, is it behind this? its right behind where the alternator was which the...
the timing chain snapped today on my 1998 vito 108d. Removed the rocker cover and all the chain was located around the tensiner area, and not around the pulleys.
Any advice on how to thread a new chain around the system please.
Had alittle look, was thinking to remove the vaccuum...
Hello. I need to release the timing chain on my 110 engine as I am replaceing the head gasket. I took off the plug, at least what I think is the plug but I didn't see what I expected. Here is a photo. How do I proceed from here? I thought the spring would come out behind the plug and that there...
This timing chain was bought for my 2000 W210 E320 cdi a while back with the intention of changing it. Unfortunately the car was gone before i got around to changing it. Recently found it while clearing out garage and is of no use to me now.
It was bought brand new from Mercedes...
W123 '84 230 CE. The engine is very clattery when started from cold for a few seconds but as soon as the oil pressure comes up on the guage, the noise disappears. I have been told this is probably the timing chain and it seems to be coming from the front of the engine. Oil pressure when idling...

I have had a tiny oil leak for the past year at the front of my engine. Yesterday/today my car has had a major service/MOT (which it sailed through of course :) ) and, after speaking to my mechanic he showed me where he thinks the leak is coming from.
After looking at the engine diagrams on...
A fiend of mine has a C220 cdi and asked me whether it has a tming belt or chain. I don't know, so thought I'd ask the knowledgeable folk here!
Also, if it's a belt, anyone know the changeing mileage?
Test drove a 1994 C220 Elegance auto, FSH up to 45k in 2003, it's mileage in now 50k - 6 years later, worried about the timing chain, does it need to be replaced??
Car in great and original condition, want to buy if wife lets me!
