      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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.

  1. Auxiliary Belts Or Water Pump

    It's a 2006, 2.0l auto estate and only go 40k on it, though rubber doesn't respect miles. Having stubby fat fingers (according to wife anyway) doesn't help either repairing stuff (or on the wife either ;)
  2. Auxiliary Belts Or Water Pump

    Cheers Stef, I'll give that a go as soon as I've worked out how to get at the pulley's etc, they dont leave much room under the bonnet to work in do they?
  3. Hi, Can anyone help on this? Sometimes and not always on cold start I get a squealing from the engine bay which lasts bout 5-10 seconds. Having read a few forums it looks like it could be either auxiliary belts (?) or water pump, but being no mechanic I don't really have a clue. Does anyone know of a reliable and a value for money mechanic in the Romford area that they would also recommend to sort out. Thanks.
