  1. Mk2 Focus Front Break discs Size

    Just came across these and think they should fit ok? Price seems decent enough. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-MINTEX-FRONT-BRAKE-DISCS-AND-PAD-SET-BRAKE-BOX-MDK0239-/362022839529?fits=Model%3AFocus|Cars+Year%3A2009&epid=1505580415&hash=item544a3e24e9:g:4woAAOSw2zZZh37z#shpCntId Might try these mintex out and see how they go.
  2. Mk2 Focus Front Break discs Size

    any links to these Albert27? Thanks to all who replied yes it seems that they are 278m I had commline discs fitted with alliped nippon pads last year but this warped on me and so that's why I'm changing them out. Got them from Local motor factors and they are selling same ones when I checked yesterday so im gonna try different ones just to see.

  4. Air Conditioning Blew Up!

    so best then not bother to disconnect the pipe maybe. I will have to just keep an eye on that pipe when working at the T.belt.
  5. Today is the day :)

    chris did you have any sort of signs the water pump was ready to go or did it just give up?
  6. Water in spark plugs

    +1 del your right mate and I also think there was a upgrade the the seal on the newer washer to help with this.
  7. Elmconfig Or Forscan

    is this forscan still 100% for the mk2.5 focus wilco? also is the extended licence worth getting with it?
  8. Throttle Body Cleaning + Maintenance????

    I did not know that wilco I must doublt check what sim pcm version I have as after a throttle clean I always use that proceaduce as in the workshop manual its states that as a initialization period for that engine, I had this checked at my local trust ford as well for conforimation but I will double check just to be sure. I guess it cant do any harm doing it anyway can it?
  9. Air Conditioning Blew Up!

    Hey Ronald J I havent been on in a wee while so Im just catching up with things and saw your post. Im due to do a belt on my 2009 focus 1,6 zetec and was wondering if you think of any other way to work around this issue apart from discontecting the hose? Im need to get my aircon filled anyways and plan to stick a water pump in while im at it so mayeb disconnceting it wouldnt be a bad idea and might actually leave things handier when doing the job, whats your thoughts?
  10. Timeing belt kit

    yeah pete I thought so myself. I think id be mad not to get this at that price to be honest. the part numbers match and if the markings are the same as yours then I think i will get and just wait for it to come. according to fordparts uk the 1780142 Kit Includes:.1778516 Water Pump & Gasket.1672144 Timing Belt Kit (contains Tensioner and Bolt) you wouldnt have any part numbers to hand just to see what if they match yours? I think they will be 100% but just checking.
  11. Timeing belt kit

    Pete thats pretty good price, I rechecked at two different branches today and the price was the same on so maybe prices went up im not sure, @Steph123 stefan, Yes i will order from local ford two new cam bolts and a new crank bolt as well. I looked online with the part number I got from for for the timing kit and cam across these three listings: 1) Ford Genuine Timing belt kit 1780142 Link 1 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Original-Ford-Timing-Belt-Kit-Water-Pump-Timing-Belt-1780142-1-25-1-4-1-6-/401242291945?epid=0&hash=item5d6be77ee9:g:I3AAAOSw37tWCl6l 2) Ford Genuine Timing belt kit 1780142 Link 2 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Timing-Belt-Kit-Water-Pump-1-25-1-4-1-6-16V-PETROL-MOTOR-1780142-/172741615428?hash=item283833df44:g:PVsAAOSwFqNZQRBW 3) Gates Timing belt kit KP1566PXS (replaces 1780142) Link 3 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gates-Timing-Cam-Belt-Water-Pump-Kit-KP15669XS-FIESTA-FUSION-1-4-1-6-2005-08-/401299294365?epid=1487963986&hash=item5d6f4d489d:g:bncAAOSwc-tY247s they all look like the parst I require and a lot less than what ford where charging me for them, what you think yourself? I was thinking of buying the one from LINK 1 then getting the crank bolt/2 cam bolts and then I should have all to start the job.
  12. Timeing belt kit

    Hey Stefan finally getting around to buying the belt it for the car, I priced with ford this AM and quoted me £126.73+vat foir the belt kit anf then £91.71+vat for the water pump. I think the guy made a balls up though as I asked for the part Numbers and when I looked them up even on ford parts uk the pump seems to be included in that kit. The parts Numbers he give me are: Timing Belt Kit 1780142 Water Pump 1778516 I think the TB kit includes the water pump. what else do I need for this? I think a new crank bolt and two crank pulley bolts as well or do we reuse the old ones? Thanks
  13. Air Conditioning Blew Up!

    As mine needs a regas any would you recommend just removing the hose completly before i do the timign tbelt/water pump and the replace the hose after thats all fitted? Then go for the regas. or just not dropping the engine too musch to strech the pipe.
  14. Air Conditioning Blew Up!

    Ronald J Thats good information there, Im due to install a timing belt/waterpump kit in the coming weeks and also then to get a full regass on the AC so I will be sure to watch out for that pipe when installing the belt.
  15. Part Number?

    Thanks Clive, it's for the father inlaws car, he had "Misplaced" (reversed into something more likley) his one, I will look on ebay but more or likly have to give it a wee paint. Thanks again,
