1.6 Duratec - Access to head bolts?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to access all head bolts by just removing the top cover or do the cams have to be removed as well? Also what is the size of the spline driver for the head bolts please?

Thanks.

I had just about concluded that the cams have to come off as the bolt heads are directly underneath.

Do you know if it is possible to slip the cams out from under the timing belt without having to remove the pulley and do a full timing belt change job just to access the head bolts?

(basically I just want to check tightness)

No Andrew I don't, 

Last head I took off was a 2.0 Pinto in a Capri......  And you could actually stand on the road through the engine compartment....

PS Did you see the post in the Fusion about a CTS ?

Re. Fusion CTS - yes I have now but is a different problem as mine works up to normal but just does never read high temp on the guage or switch the fans on
