Hi chris i have the 2002 1.8 diesel estate and my son has a y reg 1.6
petrol so we would be looking at £500? for the cam belts .I have done a
bit of tinkering with cars over the years engine out jobs and such but i
have never done a cam belt ,and todays cars have computers.(that scare
the life out of me)
I know i will have to buy some special tools but i have a good set of
tools built up over the years .
when i looked in the haynes manual it says to take of all sorts so i
know it will take a bit more than 20 mins .
its just that people keep saying its a big job and you cant do it yourself.
Should i use ford parts or are the ones on Ebay ok .
On something as critical to the integrity of the engine I would only ever
use original parts.
Don't be scared of the computer = it will never know you've changed the
Allow yourself a good half-day, double check you have all you need before
you start and you will be fine.
Post back to let us know how you got on.
