Fiesta Mk5 2001

05 February 2009 - 09:28 PM


I have a 2001 1.25 fiesta zetec.

I was looking at changing the cam belt on it.

I know that the aux belt is of the stretch type and so has to be renewed.

I also know that there are special locking tools required to lock up the cams,


It says to loosen the camshaft Sprockets ??
I dont see a reason for doing this.
I know your are supposed to time the engine to get cylinder 1 to tdc usin the timing pin and then to fit the locking bar to the cams and to remove the crank pulley, but why the cams, the car has no vvt to be set

Can anyone shed a little light on this, anyone who has actually changed a belt perhaps ???????

Thanks nick

Fiesta Timing Belt

Hi Peeps, lol

I have a 2001 (Y) Reg 1.25 Zetec Fiesta without air con,

Has anyone fitted a timing belt to a fiesta with the same engine as mine. Is there any special tools required to complete the job and how hard is it to do and how long roughly does it take.

Got quite a bit of hands on experience being a technician.

Cheers Guys.

Door Locks / Alarm

31 August 2008 - 06:29 PM

I have a fiesta 1.25 2001 3dr with central locking(not remote operated)

I need a bit of help with the connector that plugs onto the door lock modules on the front doors.

I think i am right in saying that they both have direct power feeds to them, but i am trying to find out if there is a wire that provides a feed to lock the door and another wire that unlocks the door.

Basically am thinkng of installing an alarm system but it shows on the diagram that 3 wires from the alarm module one wire connects to the unlock wire , the other to the lock wire and the third to a mainline wire.

apart from the two modules in the door is there any other modules related to the central locking.

Many Thanks Nick

Timing Belt

Hi there

I have a Y reg fiesta 3dr 1.25 zetec (2001) and was wondering if anyone has had the pleasure of changing their timing belt. If so was it easy to do and what special tools were required.

Many Thanks
