2003 Fusion 1.4Tdci Timing Belt Change

3 posts in this topic

i am going to change the timming belt on my fusion 1.4tdci & i was wondering if it is a simple job or a job for a garage ? if the timming belt snaps on the fusion does it cause major engine damage like bent valves&broken pistons ?

Its going to do damage, weather on tickover or moving, more so if it goes while on the move, and yes it can cause major damage. Not sure how to change this particular one, bit it uses the same engine as the fiesta diesel and I did mine in about an hour and a half when I had it. If your handy with the spanners I'd deffo give it a go. If not, best leave it to a garage, also get the water pump changed at the same time as if this goes, its a complete strip down again.
