Ouch and here endeth the lesson as to why belts should be changed...


Very much so, I recommend 75,000 miles or every 5 years as they aren't very robust!

So, there is a chain conversion for the 2.0L?


This is a 1.8 TDCI Lynx, and no official chain conversion although I'm sure you could buy the parts for an older model and bolt them on. I see no reason why that isn't possible given the fact I've stripped both in the past and no other differences.

2.0 TDCI is (dry) belt drive.

Does anyone have information on what kind of belt I have in my 2011 1.6 Econetic? ETIS seems to suggest 112.5k miles or 10 years, is that right? Presumably it is a rubber belt rather than a chain then?

It's a rubber belt, official ford 'guide' is 10 yrs/112.5k miles, however, I would again advise replacement every 5yrs / 75,000 miles, as if the belt breaks before 112.5k or 10 yrs ford won't honour any responsibility at all.

Thanks Squirt. It is currently 4 years and 50k so it is something to think about next year.

* Ford TRANSIT CONNECT (P65_, P70_, P80_) 1.8 TDCi 02 -> {110,1753}
* Ford TRANSIT CONNECT (P65_, P70_, P80_) 1.8 TDCi 02 -> {90,1753}

 

It _looks_ right, from the crappy photo, but it's an odd list of "fits" vehicles.  Not cheap, either.

I've fitted FAI timing chain kits to my wife's 05 meriva and daughters 04 Astra both 1.4 petrol , kits included gaskets, oil seals etc. Astra has long since been traded in but at the time the dealer said the chain was noisy (again) at start up, ( he also reckoned the head gasket was gone), but now the meriva's chain is noisy (again) at start up so I wonder about the actual quality / longetivity of the FAI kits considering the meriva still only has 65000 kilometres done since new.

Hey, I'm from Estonia but my ford was firstly registered in the Nederlands. I have a mondeo 1.8tdci built in 2007/11, so I'm assuming it's with a belt. My dealer couldn't tell me but two autoparts stores said it is with a chain according to the VIN. So here is my question, is it possible that wet chain was fitted only for the UK market? I did not find any information for this and only found problems in the UK. I have a 125k miles on my car, so I need to find out quickly. Tomorrow I'm gonna call few other dealers and if no answer I will check the tensioner (according to the youtube video, it s the only way to find out). But yeah I was just wondering that maybe other Europe cars were with a chain, maybe someone knows.
