    Hi guy's. Last week my 1.8TD started whineing on start up. Initialty thought it was alternator belt but now think its the cambelt. Does same thing hot or cold and lasts about 15 secs. Cam belt is only 2yrs old, 15000mls. Easy fix or need replacing? Is it ready to snap? Thanx in advance. Bash

    when you had your cambelt done did this include tensioners too?

    id get it looked at asap, if anything needs changing it will require it all to be done again if anywhere with half a brain does it, any attempt to reuse rollers, tensioners or belt shows a complete tit of a mechanic lol

    also sure its not from bell housing ie flywheel, common failure on fords in recent years
