  1. Ford 1.8 TDCi | Lower Wet Belt to Chain kit this was advertised on E bay sent a message to them saying will this have all the components necessary to convert to the chain replied we have sold these but dont know if they will fit to replace the wet belt. price was 94.99 sold by midlandscomponents Walsall.It sounds a bit risky unless anyone knows any different.

    Cam belt confusion

    My Mondeo has two cam belts its the DURATORQ 1.8 Lynx diesel engine registered 21/10/2008 at what interval should these be changed.I am told the lower one could possibly be a chain how much work would it take for a mechanic to find out,also if it is a chain i wouldnt think it should need replacing and i have noticed when its been a belt they have replaced it with a chain.
  4. I have been quoted £180 for fitting a cambelt and water pump parts supplied by me is this a reasonable quote.

    Shouldnt it be installed in the boot as this one is on the floor back passenger door. I stand corrected its not a sensor but a speaker connected to the sensors.

    I was vaccuming the back floor for dog hairs when i noticed a wire coming from the back door sill where the carpet meets it on the end was a plastic circular item with a hole in the top it looked as though it should be stuck on somewhere as it has a sticky back could it be a sensor for something my ford is a 2008 1.8 titanium.

    Cam belt

    When changing the cambelt is it necessary to change the water pump as well.
