#403075 Fuel Leak From Here..

Posted by IINexusII on 29 August 2014 - 03:50 PM

yes that is the leak off pipe, try replacing the little O ring that seals it into the injector first, its a 50p part from ford. they will be very tiny green rubber rings

oil is correct. ford recommend not to do a flush (in the owners manual). youll probably need another 1ltr bottle as it will take abit over 5l to refill

i think this is the wheel bearing for your car but youll need to verify that. not too bad @ http://www.eurocarpa...c2620c16

 

youll need a hydraulic press to remove the old & fit the new

#342660 Focus 1.6Tdci Oil In Air Inlet And Air Filter.

Posted by IINexusII on 14 March 2014 - 10:00 AM

I think its normal to have a thin coating of oil in the turbo/intercooler hoses, but how much play do you have on the turbo?

 

i believe it is the oil feed pipe to the turbo that is the culprit to the failures on the 1.6, its prone to get clogged up if the oil is not changed regularly
