  2. Aux Drive Belt

    cheers stefan
  3. Aux Drive Belt

    100% Stefan agree, I got the genuine ford kit with the new pump and bolts to go. also plan on getting a new crank and 2 new cam bolts as well. Would it better to also stick some instant gasket on the pump seal when doing it or would it be fine when tightened up? hey chris, yes the kit numver is 1780142 and includes the timine belt,tensioner and pump, gasket and bolts all for £116 which is a fantastic price vs my local ford parts department. Here is a link and delivery is pretty quick as well. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Ford-C-Max-Mondeo-Focus-Fiesta-Timing-Cam-Belt-Kit-Water-Pump-1780142/162205729798?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 https://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_14_and_16_duratec_timing_belt_and_water_pump_kit_f_1780142_c_589.htm Hope this helps cheers
  4. Aux Drive Belt

    ooops Sorry I thought that was for one belt. I haven't actually looked into it properly as I have been flat out busy with other things at home so i just got the timing belt kit from ford and I'm ready to install but wanted to get new aux belts as well to renew them when I'm at it. Yeah that's a good price for the whole kit (2 belts and fitting tools), I will pick that one up. Thanks Also since i will be replacing the water pump as well can any one recommend a good antifreeze? cheers
  5. Aux Drive Belt

    I thought that but was not 100% sure lol!. are they really needed? also does anyone know if this belt can be got a little cheaper anywhere? I was thinking it would be around the £15 mark,
  6. Aux Drive Belt

    Hey fellas just about to tackle the timing belt and decided to renew the aux belt when I'm at it. I got this one from a part number at ford https://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_drive_belt_kit_16l_zetec_and_16_duratec_petrol_2007_f_1708273.htm are these easy to slip on and I was expecting it just to have the belt on its own but see that this has extra stuff any ideas what they are for? Cheers Sonic
  7. Mk2 Focus Front Break discs Size

    Just an update here, They arrived today and I fitted them this evening. All seems well and braking is perfect. I will update later on in time if they warp ect but so far so good. Really good value. Thanks David for the recommendation.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. Elmconfig Or Forscan

    is this forscan still 100% for the mk2.5 focus wilco? also is the extended licence worth getting with it?
  15. 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?
