There is room to work on the zetec motor in the ZX2, however the valve cover must come off because the cams need to be locked in place with a file or piece of aluminum stock so that the cam timing will be correct. I suggest getting a Haynes manual if you don't have one already and read through it, use it as a guide as you do the job. I did a timing belt in a zetec Focus earlier this year for a friend, it worked out just fine. Replace the water pump while you're at it, it will be easy to get at while you're in there. Also use a new valve cover gasket so that it won't leak when you put it back together.
