Question:

I have a ford fiesta R registration. It is an 1800 LX diesel model. Assuming the garage where I purchased it from in January 2005 is giving me the correct information, the cam belt was changed when I bought it with 44,000 miles on the clock. It has now done 88,000 miles. I was told it should have a life of 72,000 miles, but does it need changing sooner due to the age of the cam belt with 44,000 miles of the 72,000 miles completed?
