Hello, your car is 2006 or early 2007 and will have an all alloy engine which is timing chain driven, a good marker for the chain driven model is the indicators on the door mirrors which changed in 2006.

This confuses me. I've always thought my 53 plate t spirit had a chain. When I bought it part of the deal was a full service including change of cambelt. On the service sheet it says quite clearly no belt- chain. Have I been mislead because everyone else I have spoken to have intimated that it has a timing chain.

Hi mate,

all the petrol vvti have a chain, the diesels 2003 to early 2006 have a belt then 2006 onwards all have a chain.

Hope this clears things up, Pete.

Thanks Pete. That settles that. Why a chain for petrol and a belt for diesel though?

Yes roadrunner the vvti and diesel ad engind series are chain. The last diesel engine with the belt is the 1cd-ftv and the last petrol is pre vvti.
