  3. Timing Belt Change

    Very good point stef123 , I will get them to check over the work . I know the whole proses has been a nightmare they snapped the cam sensor bolt and charged me to replace the thing 80 pounds . They really are quite the joke . And thanks for confirming my initial thoughts , as the n/s studs are fine and I watched the tyre guy take the wheels off . !Removed! hendy fords ....never again Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  4. Timing Belt Change

    Hi thanks for the reply, just noticed I put fuel pump that's wrong it was belts kit and water pump, :) but yes in having a massive prob , I had the belt changed as I thought it was about time at 125000 mls and we were meant to be driving through France today , however one of fords recommendations was to change front tyres , so I went to a tyre shop and they have informed me that four of the five nuts have been cross threaded knackering the nuts and hub bolts :( they managed to get the wheel back on all be it on 4 nuts , but I just wanted to double check that they would have taken wheel off , before I start shouting in fords !
