Focus Tddi 1.8 Timing Belt Change


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone im a bit of a newbie here so apologies if i make mistakes in posting or if its been covered.

I just need some info about doing a cam belt change and I have a few questions...

First do i need to remove the cam belt sprocket, or can i just loosen it somehow?

Do I need to remove intercooler?

Can I use a bolt as a timing pin if so am I right in thinking its a M10 cut to 63.4 mm as per Petrol version.

Can I just use (or do I even need) a bar of the correct size on cam slot?

Do I need a Clavis gauge as per haynes manual, or do new tensioners have auto type setting?

Also when I come to mark TDC on crankshaft pulley where do I mark ?

I think thats it, Ive never done a cam belt so just wanting to make sure I dont make any errors.

Thanks in advance for any advice.:)
