Hi i own an 09 TDCi 1.6 Zetec Focus and from the day i got it i have heard a kinda 'squeaky ticky clicky' noise coming from engine. I have been to ford a number of times had the belt replaced which cost 70+ coz its not covered by warranty. I have been to other fords around North East, they then decided it was something to do with the tension on the belt, and i am still hearing this !Removed! noise. Has anyone got any idea what else this could be?

Cheers

Rach

The tensioner is spring loaded, try putting the air con on and the heated screens on, does the noise get any louder putting strain on the belt?

the reason I ask is I had the same problem with my car (mondy) and IT WAS the tensioner, the spring inside was creaking/squeaking (it was that bad I thought it was the timing chain) I easly fixed mine (been fine for 12 months now) by taking it off and giving it a good clean out with wd40 then put a bit oil oil inside.

Hope this helps.

I have this sound too. There is another discussion about it in this thread: http://www.fordowner...aks-and-knocks/

BIGGSY got the belt replaced which solved the issue in his case, whether he paid for it or not, I'm not sure.

PS: not sure if you should have paid for the belt to be replaced. The Ford warranty says this:

Scheduled maintenance items
The parts listed below have a limited service life and are either replaced or adjusted during scheduled maintenance operations. These parts are covered by the Ford Base Warranty up to the first point at which replacement or adjustment becomes due. The period of warranty cover for any item may not exceed the time and distance limitations of the Ford Base Warranty.

  • Drive belts
  • Spark plugs
  • Oil filter, air filter, pollen filter, diesel particulate filter and fuel filters.


And the first point at which the aux belt is due to be replaced is 10 years or 125,000 miles.
