Cambelt + Water Pump Costs

11 December 2014 - 03:46 PM

2.0 TDCI '09...


I've been quoted £460 for genuine parts, £380 for non-gen - these prices include the cambealt + water pump since it seems most people get the pump done at the same time.




1) These prices any good? (Ford warranty centre)

2) Who is the manufacturer of the genuine parts?

3) Gen or non-gen?

4) Water pump yes or no?

5) Add the aux belt?



Dpf - If I Don't Have A Problem, Do I Leave Well Alone?

10 December 2014 - 11:32 AM

Hi all,


I'm having a fair bit of work done on my car at 104k, including an early cambelt renew I think.


However, I'm not sure on the DPF side of things. I do a lot of miles, so I guess it re-gens properly, and I have had no problems with it so far.


However, I notice the fluid renew is at 75k.  This hasn't been done, so my question is - should I do it, or should I leave well alone until I have an issue?


I know the DPFs are a nightmare, so if its better to leave it be, I will do so!



Bg244 - Now Available At Kwikfit!

17 September 2014 - 02:14 PM

If I know the people on this forum, I'd say


1) We like BG244

2) We don't goto KwikFit much.


So by luck, I found out KwikFit now sell all the BG products, including BG244 for £19.95 (cheaper than online)


You can walk in and pay/leave.

Focus Mk2.5 2.0 Tdci - Belt Or Chain?

18 August 2014 - 04:06 PM

Very quick question... is the 2.0 litre tdci (mk2.5 / 2008 - 211) a belt or chain setup?  It's the ford/peugeot engine... dw10 i think?



Mk2.5 - Flywheel Hell - Same Old Story??

11 August 2014 - 08:54 AM

So I've had a couple of other focus' and always managed to nurse the DMF's and not had any major problem besides a bit of vibration.


However, 18 months (and 50k) after this post....




I appear to now be in flywheel hell.


I just wondered if anything has changed from previous models - car has done 100k so it's due.  Vibration when idling (but only now and again), vibration through the clutch, rattling noise.  All points to dual mass flywheel right? Starter motor is fine so I hoped that would keep the cost down somewhat.


However, first ford main dealer has quoted £1480.    I knew it was going to be around a grand, but that seems a bit excessive.


Any thoughts?


Also tempted to buy the flywheel/clutch kit off ECP for £200 and have someone fit it - pros/cons/etc


Many thanks!
