if you mean the timing belt, then you may be looking at possibly bent valves, damage to the pistons,damage to camshaft and possibly crank shaft. may be if you're lucky nothing may happen. the worst case would be the need for a new engine. if you mean the serpentine belt that is also known as the acessory belt then , it wont be any damage it will be more of an inconvinience. because your power steering pump stops working your alternator stops ,and your ac compressor. The above is true, unless you continued to drive without the water pump turning until you overheated the engine and warped the head.

A broken timing belt on a Ford ZX2 will not damage the engine.

Because of this the valves will not be damaged and no engine damage will occur.

How do you time 2000 ford focus 2.0 after the belt has broken?

If this is a DOHC 2.0 it is an Interference engine and you may have serious engine damage. If it is a SOHC 2.0, then you are OK as it is a non-interference engine. If you have replaced the belt, you need to check for engine damage. The belt should have been replaced at 120,000 miles. I suggest a professional look at this, especially if it is the DOHC, as replacing the belt incorrectly will do more damage.
