Fiesta 2006 1.4 Zetec timing belt change.

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

In the near future, I'm considering an attempt to change the timing belt/water pump/auxiliary belt/power steering belt on my (pre-facelift) 2006 Fiesta 1.4 Zetec (90 000 miles).

I've done quite a bit of research and whilst making no claim to be an expert car mechanic, I am a time served mechanical engineer, so I could maybe, claim a certain level of  mechanical competence (I recently changed the clutch on the girlfriend's 2006 Fiesta 1.25 Zetec).

When I begin, I'm hoping to post my progress on here with pics.

I'd truly appreciate any comments/help/suggestions from anybody with experience of tackling this job on the Zetec engines.

I have two opening thoughts/questions that I'd like to ask before I start buying parts:

1) Why does Ford/Haynes advise loosening the camshaft pulleys?

2) Do I need a flywheel locking tool when removing the crankshaft pulley bolt?  Ford/Haynes don't appear to mention one.
