Timing Belt Change - Do I Need to Empty the Coolant?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Quick question, I'm about to change the timing belt on my Ford Focus Mk2 1.6 TDCi Titanium and Haynes recommend draining the cooling system (2A.6) for better access to the lower belt cover.

Is this a necessity or I can get away without draining it?

Also, would a cleaner like 'Würth Brake Cleaner' be ok to clean the tensioner & idler pulleys?

Many thanks in advance for your help,
