Well my tensioner is knackered so phoned ford as didnt want a cheap rubbish 1 off ebay. Last spring lasted about 4k before rattling once more. Unbelievably,ford dealer wanted £200!!!!!!lol they said the price has just went up due to parts/manufacturers etc.
Came off the phone to them,then phoned jaguar in perth. Alan you're a star! £66.04 & VAT!!!
Exact same part as ford.even has the ford logo stamped on it. How can Ford treat their customers this way for gods sake?? Unreal

You'll find that a lot of Ford engine parts are identical to ones from a Jaguar.  Oddly, the Jaguar ones are always much cheaper.  They aren't nicknamed Fraud for nothing.
