    Cam belt change

    I'm sitting at 124987 on mine now. Have had the belt kit since 90000 and still trying to get a chance to get it installed. Will have it done by next weekend though as The car wont be use so The weekend will be free.

    Loctite Thread Lock On Crank and cam bolts??

    Thanks wilco. Yes got all new bolts so will just fit as the guide states and not use any form of threadlock. Thanks
  4. After a long wait I'm ready to get the timing kit in this weekend 😁. So i was just wondering has any body used any type of thread lock on the New cam Bolts and The New crank bolt up refitting all? The manual doesn't mention it at all and from reading online it seems to have mixed reviews about using it so just wanted to get option from anyone here who has fitted timeing-belts on these fords. Thanks In advanced.

    Clicking noise inside of car when turning

    Hopefully it shows its face soon and you can get to the bottom of it. Keep us updated on how it goes anyways.

    Car Mats

    I have always used carpet type mats but need new ones now so was thinking about getting the rubber type ones. Are the rubber type ones better and more practical do you think?

    Cam belt

    Sorry For late reply. Yes I got the tool kit as well, I just picked them all up in parts at different times of Amazon ect just like Micro has listed in his post. I did have some images sent to me by another member on here (I think it was stef )a good while back but have misplace them but they where identical to the ones in this link as far as I remember, Also I plan to renew the cam bolts as well and with the original ford kit you don't get the crank bolt but there are three sizes as far as I know so I plan to just get the three and then pick the correct one when I take mine out. Here are the links for those. Cam Bolts + washer https://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_bolt_and_washer_f_1444182.htm Crank Bolt 1 https://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_mk1__zetec_crankshaft_pulley_bolt_1998-2005_f_1057134_c_372.htm Crank Bolt 2 https://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_zetec_crankshaft_pulley_bolt_445mm_1998-2005_f_1406755_c_372.htm Crank Bolt 3 https://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_bolt_f_1677517.htm http://replace-timing-belt.com/how-to-replace-timing-belt-on-ford-focus-1-6i-2007-2011_/ Hope this helps, I plan to take a few pics and maybe make a guide when I do mine to help others here but as I mentioned I wont get at mine until spring hits as weather here is not great at moment .

    Dash cam advice!

    I know what you mean, if you stick with uk sellers its half the battle but seriously its a great little camera easy to get installed, there is a guide on here somewhere for hard wiring it into car which I would recommend for any cam as it a lots better that using up the power sockets and having wires trailing every where.

    Cam belt

    I have the same engine and have the kit here. Awaiting better weather to fit it lol! I opt for the genuine ford belt kit and the water pump just to be on the safe side plan to replace the lot at the one time as others have said you don't want to pump to give issues after ripping all down to replace the belt ect. Just do all at the one time and thats it Goodluck

    Dash cam advice!

    Hi Ben I haven't been on here in a while but I recommend the Mobius dash cam, I have had it for many years now with no issues at all. The software is great and simple to use and regularly gets updates to add new features ect but the cam itself is so small and Deseret , I have it hardwired to my focus and position behind the rear view mirror, cant be seen at all from inside of car and its very hidden from outside as well. Its also got a motion sense recording (Parked mode as some call it) which is very handy indeed, At some point i will get another for the rear window, There have been many models since I bought mine and since dash cams have become more popular but I just anted a basic cam, good quality, reliable, very discret and that does hat it supposed to do and I found that with the mobius, I highly recommend. Here is a but do shot around as it has many deals and packages ect. http://www.carcamerashop.co.uk/mobius-action-camera-dash-cam-version.html
