In Topic: Focus Mk2 Cam Belt

But the 1.6 Tcdi only has one belt, right? 

 

I'm getting the timing belt, aux belt and water pump done soon and this discussion shows that a bit of knowledge could help even if you don't do the job yourself - at least you are able to make sure the garage knows what they are doing before committing to them, or worse, finding out afterwards that they screwed up.

The instructions for my Witter towbar said I would need to cut the bottom of the bumper skirt, but in the end it fitted without needing to cut anything.  That isn't for an S trim though so it might be different for yours.

OK thanks - thats one of the reasons I look for recommendations from people who have used the same products and think they are good.

I'm interested in these as well, and am I right to assume these are a straight swap for the existing OEM bulbs? 

 

mjt, what is wrong in the description and does it affect using them?

I used to have a Ford Escape (2005 XLT 3.0 V6 if I remember right) when living in Canada so just like yours but a newer model.  It was a great car, but very thirsty compared with the 1.6TDCi on the Focus!  I even looked at exporting it when I moved back to Europe but it didn't make financial sense.
