      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  5. Ford Fiesta 1.25 8V 2012 Serpentine Belt

    Ok belive ive found the belt i need. I can't find anywhere online where a actual fitting tool is? does one even exist? if not and its just a tight belt how do you fit it? Im doing this with my brother who knows more about cars then me, but want to know we are doing it the correcy way before we try.
  6. Ford Fiesta 1.25 8V 2012 Serpentine Belt

    Yep its come up as a 1.25 duratec 16v signa. As the belt has no tensioner then how do u remove and put on a new one?
  7. Ford Fiesta 1.25 8V 2012 Serpentine Belt

    Well I thought it was a 8v? Maybe it is a 16v im not to sure. It's a 2012 fiesta studio 1 25 so thought it was a 8v as it was the 60ps one. It only has 1 belt as I have no air con. There's only 4 cogs it goes round. One the water pump. Alternator. The cog it goes round on the outside plus from the looks of it the tensionor Seems like a automatic tensioner I could be wrong. Also be good to know if the bely someone posted a few posts up is the right one.
  8. Ford Fiesta 1.25 8V 2012 Serpentine Belt

    Also how do you change it? i see there tensioner at the bottom but i can't see how to slacken it apart from unbolting the tensioner from the engine?
  9. Ford Fiesta 1.25 8V 2012 Serpentine Belt

    no its not a ecoboost one. just a standard 1.25 8v 60ps
  10. Anyone know where i can get one of these from? Been googling this evening and can't seem to find anyone online i can actually buy one. Anyone know a site that sells them? Or has a actual link to onei can buy Thanks
