  1. Drive Belts - Help Please.........!!!!

    The Gates catalogue also only lists one belt, their part number is 6PK1708 and this drives the ancillaries as well as the power steering pump. The ContiTech catalogue has the same their part number is 6PK1705
  2. Newbie oil question...

    You should check the oil weekly at the very least.
  3. Fiesta 1.4tdci battery/electrical problem

    So you disconnect the battery and connect the ammeter from the battery to the positive lead and measure 18A?
  4. Zetec S badge

    eBay or a Ford dealer.
  5. Is it really too much for a 59 reg

    Average asking price from a dealer, shop around there are plenty more Fiesta's available.
  6. 2003 2.0 tdci white smoke barely runs

    If you bought from a garage take it backand tell them to fix it.
  7. 2010 TDCI chuffing noise ticking over

    Could be a leaky exhaust manifold, never heard of the 1.6 TDCi injector seals leaking. Not a difficult job with the right tools.
  8. If its been standing for a while the rear drums will be rusty, you need to strip the rear brakes and clean the rust/muck out. I'd also replace the brake shoes
  9. Burning Smell

    Plastic bag stuck to the exhaust pipe.
  10. Ignition Problems Someone Help Please

    I think he means the windows go up and down OK but the engine won't turn over, sounds like a flat battery.
  11. Sounds like a bad earth somewhere, check all the heavy duty leads from battery to chassis and all the small ones where they bolt to the body. Take them off, clean and replace.
  12. Glow Plugs Mk7 1.6Tdci

    If they are only two years old they should not need changing, have you checked them?
  13. Seat Hight

    Buy a bigger car!
