Ford Fiesta EcoBoost - do I need to change the cam belt?

I have been told by my garage that it’s advisable to change the cam belt on my 2015 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost but it has only done 45,000 miles. Is this advice correct?

Unless there is a problem with the engine or belt, this is incorrect.

The 1.0 EcoBoost uses a wet belt system that runs the belt in oil and allows it to operate up to 10 years or 150,000 miles (whichever comes first) between changes.
