Ecoboost Cam Belt/chain

25 May 2014 - 12:10 PM

Hi folks,

 

Does any one know if the Fiesta Ecoboost has a cam belt or chain. The reason I am asking is that I have seen it written that the engine has a cam belt running in oil - that sounds like a chain to me.


7.5 Door Panels

03 April 2014 - 07:48 AM

Has anyone removed the door panel (preferably driver's side) yet. I know there is a guide for the Mk7 but the 7.5 is different. I do not wish to put too much pressure on the fixing since I may be doing it wrong or break them.

 

My problem is that when I shut the door there is no longer a satisfying 'clunk' but more of a clang. I think that perhaps the sound deadening has come loose.

 

Any help would be appreciated.


Servicing Costs

26 February 2014 - 04:38 PM

I have now had my Fiesta Ecoboost 100bhp for 12 months. I took it to my supplying dealer fir its first service. I noticed the fixed price service cost for a Fiesta is £152 in small print £25 extra for turbo. Question what extra work is done because the car has a turbocharger or is this just another rip off?


Glass Cleaner

18 December 2013 - 09:13 AM

I hope there is someone out there who can help. I have had my Titanium for 10 months brilliant car but can anyone recommend a good glass cleaner that will not leave streaks. My main concern is the inside of the windscreen which develops a haze which I believe is cause by the gases given off by the plastics in the plastics used in the car. I have tried Turtle wax, windowlene (?) and all the usual glass cleaning products.


Ecoboost Titanium Light Unit

29 August 2013 - 09:14 AM

Just thought I would warn all 7.5 Titi owner of a problem that has arisen. The LED strip in the headlight unit works only intermittently. Took it to my supplier who agreed that it was a warranty issue and the whole headlight unit is to be replaced ( can't believe that the led cannot be replaced alone) the headlight is on back order I asked if there was any idea when it would arrive - 'how long is a piece of string was the answer' - Christmas perhaps?

 

Another worrying feature for when the car is out of warranty or the unit is broken - replacement cost on today's figures £250 + vat.
