  9. 1.6 TDCI broken cam belt

    Hi Mitch thanks for your reply. I had a good look at other threads on the subject and had heard the term interference engine mentioned and that because of this I am to expect more damage. it has just turned 90 K and is a 2010 dealer told me interval is 125k ! !Removed! timing belt and kit sitting on my work bench but not rushed to do it on strength of main dealers comment......... i am considering a replacement engine rather than spending money stripping down current engine only to find possibly a non cost effective repair. any idea what the likely damage would be in the worst case scenario ? also what are the difficulties in fitting a replacement engine? Do the electronics make this very difficult ? Has anyone here done it? Any my advice much appreciated cheers vin

  11. Boot issue

    I done mine tonight, right enough it's quite easy from outside . Use rags to keep screwdrivers from damaging paintwork when you prise the old one out . Remove the number plate to make it easier as it does get in the way . Once it's out of the aperture disconnect the wiring plug , connect your new one and push it into place. cheers vin
  12. Boot issue

    Mine just went today too on my 2010 fiesta. Seems it is a common problem. Switch costs 28 plus vat from my dealer. i looked for a guide on how to do it. Some say in through the inside of tailgate removing the wiper motor for access but another guy says you can do it easily from outside just gently prising the old one out. cheers vin
