      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Fiesta 1.4 Zetec
  1. Hi My daughter's car, a 2005 1.4 Fiesta Zetec has been diagnosed with a leaking water pump, initially the garage quoted £207 to supply and fit the replacement (2 hours + parts), now they say it will be £425 as when they went to replace the pump, there are a couple of bolts that cannot be reached unless they remove the timing cover which means they might as well replace the timing belt too(>4 hours). Called a couple of garages and they all say its a 1.9~2 hour job and neither of them said they would have to change the timing belt. Am I getting good sound advice or am I being mislead?
