Hi all,
What size of screw or bolt is required to fit the engine cover to a 1.6TDCI.
Iíve recently purchased the engine cover but it didnít come with any screws or bolts for fitting to the engine, Iíve checked the engine and theirs white grommets (Cup Holes) that match up with the holes in the cover but thereís no threads in the grommets, so donít want to try make my own bolts,

Has anyone on here got an engine cover fitted to theirs and could you post a picture of the bolts holding yours on please
.

You can see the bolt mounted on engine and hole for bolt beneath of the cover.

I'd like to know how to get the !Removed! thing off. I can unscrew the obvious one on top of the cover, but the one to the side is an awkward sod. How do you get that off? :angry:

from looking under my cover, try removing the screws then push (dont Lift) just push it towards the windscreen and it should slide up then lift off, please post a picture of the screws you have removed.

Hi all,
What size of screw or bolt is required to fit the engine cover to a 1.6TDCI.
I’ve recently purchased the engine cover but it didn’t come with any screws or bolts for fitting to the engine, I’ve checked the engine and theirs white grommets (Cup Holes) that match up with the holes in the cover but there’s no threads in the grommets, so don’t want to try make my own bolts,

Has anyone on here got an engine cover fitted to theirs and could you post a picture of the bolts holding yours on please
.


Well its almost two years in my attic, and I'm finally going to fit it.
I've been in touch with ford to purchase fixings. But they need a 1.6TDCi that has the part factory fitted in order to supply me with the parts.

So if anyone has a 1.6TDCi with factory fitted engine cover
Could they PM me their VIN so as I can aquire the parts from ford?

Does an engine cover reduce noise by much?

In theroy it should mate, but bonnet insulation would be better at reducing noise levels.

And BUMP!
Can anyone help me with a VIN or Ecat images of parts to fit my 1.6TDCi engine cover to the engine for the first time.

Stoney should be able to help - he said this in the Green Cotton thread

"Got around to fitting my filter last night, what a doddle.
Remove engine cover, undo jubilee clip on pipe, undo six Torx screws around the filter housing, swap filters and reverse."

The engine cover for a 1.8 is different.
On mine though it's 4 plastic bolts from the engine block that have rounded heads that the cover clips onto.

Yes thank you,
That is identical to the engine cover I have ready to fit.
But I've contacted ford and they want a VIN to match a 1.6TDCi with engine cover so as they can supply parts.
I'll try PM the focus owner thanks mate.

Thanks mate.
That's the exact part I have and will fit the 1.6TDCi engine on all ford but I need the parts to mount to the engine or a VIN of a car that has one already fitted so as ford can supply the fittings to mount it.
