  1. hi all, i went to book in my fiesta for a cambelt change to be told the cost was 330 pounds. not according to the Ford fixed price list, its 249 pounds for a fiesta. oh we dont particupate in that scheme says the receptionist well you are on the list of participating dealers at that price i inform her.. calls manager. i explain predicament. ok he says we will do it for the advertised fix price. result!!!
  2. Thanks Dan, i will check it out with the Ford dealers tomorrow just to double check. cheers m8
  3. Have just ordered a Haynes Manual for Fiesta 2002 -2008 so that should tell me if its a belt or a chain. Good news is that 100k is Ford recomended for change of belt. As i only do 2000 miles a year , i think i will leave it for a while. btw it runs ok now i have taken the tyre pressure down to 29 lbs/sq for a load of under three people. The tyres were pressured up to 37 lbs/sq which is for a load of three people or more and it ran like a bag of nails.
  4. This is disturbing form another forum:- All Mk6 Fiesta's use a camshaft timing "belt" ... EXCEPT ... the Fiesta ST which uses a timing "chain".
  5. Thanks Dan, Will my local ford dealer be able to tell me if it has a cam belt or a chain and if so what info do they need to determine this?
  6. Fiesta 2005 mk6 54000 miles. is it time to change the cam belt?
