It's for a 2002 (pre-cacelift) Duratec 2.0

Here's a detailed video on removing, and replacing, the alternator on the petrol 1.8 and 2.0. Lots of instruction for the diesels but the web seemed to lack info on the Duratec so I hope this helps some folk...

Hello everyone, I have a new to me 2005 Focus Mk2 2.0 Duratec which seems to behave quite strangely. I changed the oil and filters at 130,000 km when I bought it, and after 700 km the dipstick showed about 1/3 below max. Thinking I got an oil burner, I kept checking the oil almost daily, but the...
I've been catching up with maintenance over the weekend; the thermostat was on its way out, rattly swirl plates in the manifold, EGR valve errors etc.
Having done those and thoroughly cleaned the oil separator plate & PCV valve, I got it all back together yesterday evening - and it won't...
Had my MK6 ST for a few weeks now
I have a squeak that is very irregular and only occurs at certain times. One day it will, the next it won't. Usually it's when I've been driving for an hour or so and the engine is warm. It can be heard when idle and is affected when I tap the accelerator...
My Modeo MB Wagon would not change gears properly yesterday on the way home, had to use the tiptronic to make it shift. After stopped at a set of lights, I noticed the temperature gauge was climbing and then going back down when moving.
Anyone know what could be wrong? My guess would be the...
I've a serious problem on my 2007 Ford Focus 1.8 Zetec Climate petrol. After some investigation, it appears that the throttle potentiometer is sending a signal to the ECU but the ECU is not actioning movement of the butterfly in the throttle body. We replaced the throttle body but it's not...

I wanted to know if anyone has had their reverse light removed and fitted a centre exit exhaust system through the reverse light hole?
If this is possible does anyone know where we can purchase parts from?

A couple of weeks ago I replaced the auxiliary belt, tensioner pulley, and idler pulley on a Mondeo MK3 1.8L (pre-facelift, 2003). Lately, I have noticed a persistent "tapping" sound produced somewhere in the aux. belt area. The sound is quite obvious when idling on low RPMs, and...
What are the differences in dimensions, not stroke, between the four Duratec i4 engines crankshaft: 1.8 / 2.0 / 2.3 / 2.5?
Will suit the 2.3 crankshaft in 1.8 or 2.0 engine?
Same question for the 2.5 crankshaft.
Here is another of my "dummies" guides to the Mondeo mk3. In this guide I will go through how to change a mondeo mk3 petrol filter. Haynes recommend that you do this every 4 years.
You will need the following: socket set, petrol filter (doh!), jack (to raise the car then support it on axle...
So after 4 years of perfect operation, last night went to start my 2010 2.0ltr Mondeo and the engine will not start. On a long drive yesterday it started to feel a little sluggish when pulling off from low speed.
Today, had the AA out, he can't hear a whine of a fuel pump.
Sparks working ok...
Howling whining noise and burning smell -> Need to replace the alternator on my 2002 Mondy. Duratec 2.0 petrol auto.
Any recommendations for outfits, other than eBay where there are one or two, for sourcing a new one?
Avoiding genuine Ford and hoping to get some better value.
