pity no-one has done a good quality "you-tube" tutorial, on the fiesta timing belt...

i would do one if i knew how to change it, but i dont...

does anyone know of one thats been done.?



If you're not 100% sure how to do it dont even attempt it!!!! Seriously the damage you could cause if you do it wrong could mean a new engine time. Pay someone who does know how to do it. A cambelt kit is around 50 from Ford which includes a new tensioner which I'd ALWAYS advise you to change too. Then at most a couple of hours labour to fit it.

Where abouts are you in the UK? Im in Yate, near Bristol.

Im bunging a belt on this focus i just bought the other day, if your close and want to come over and watch you're welcome to. Alternatively, ill bung you one on for less than a dealer will charge, but i want to do mine first as ive never done a ford one before :)

And the belt kit for mine came in at 80 quid!!

Meh, with the VAT it was only an extra tenner, plus the convenience of picking it up the same day.

If yours is the same as mine the engine mount has to come off to get the belt cover off.
