Just a quick one, has anyone change their fan belt on a 05 1.8 TDCI. the mk1 focus had a nut on the adjuster pulley, this one as not, how can I move this adjuster so that I can fit a new belt, the old ones were so easy to do..(just like ford to make an easy job that bit harder).

im sure i read there was a special tool that goes on the tensioner or around it to release the pressure on the belt

i think it just uses a bolt screwed in to the tensioner which takes the tension off, i dont know what size the bolt is but the finis code is 4413741. thats if it applies to your engine. you would screw it in to a threaded bit at the rear of the tensioner and it pushes against a lug.
hope this is helpful.

Thanks guys

Both ideas are good, i have ask about a tool for the job but have had no luck, the bolt in the tensioner also sounds possible i will have to wait untill it stops raining to have a go..

Thanks again guys

Hi Zev

the alternator drive belt makes a squealing noise, and it drives you mad..
