...so it decided to piss across the car park. think water pump has gone, seems to be coming from lower timing belt cover. is it a big job to change? i know timing belt needs to come off but can it been re-used? last time i looked at it it looked in good nick.

speaking to others on here the belt does have to come off and be replaced idealy. The bloke with the kahns said total cost of the job was about ?250. Sure it aint the hose. I had this problem to, but it seems to have healed itself for the time being.

I put a new cam belt on when i first got me Si with a mate it was quite a fiddly job from what i remember, theres not alot of space down there, i can't quite remember but i think the biggest pain was simply taking the plastic housing out, to get to the actual timing belt.

But hopefully yours won't be such a pain, i guess its just one of them things sometimes its easy other times its NOT.

when i had a look earlier, it looks like you couldnt get bottom cover off without removing bottom pulley, and to do this you need to undo the lower front engine mount. proper ballache.should be done tomorrow

Mine was just the lower rad hose, which I change myself. But it seems to be a common thing at the mo, maybe they are all timed to piss everything around now to keep some money rolling in to Ford? :lol:

yes, thanks very much for the advice. did wonder which 2 13mm's at first though, then saw them holding that in place. made it a lot easier. was a right pain in the arse job to do. think when 2ltr gets done its gonna get a new timing belt/water pump etc done whilst its out of the car.
