Does a 2004 Fabia 1.2 have a belt or chain?

Does the Skoda fabia Ambiente 1198cc (1.2) 2004 petrol - 75k miles , does it have a timing chain or belt? Wether which when should I replace?

Our answer:

Hi Thomas,

That engine has a timing chain. There is no set change interval for timing chains usually, though that engine's chain is a known weak point, so it's worth keeping an ear out for it getting noisy (or get a mechanic to check that for you).
