I have a 2.2 diesel transit, front wheel drive, which, according to the VIN plate is a 2006 but was first registered end of 2007.
Earlier today, the centre came out of the crankshaft pulley - the rubber appears to have perished, causing the problem. Firstly, is this a common fault? I would have expected it to last a lot longer than this, as it's only done 12,000 miles. Secondly, other than going direct to Ford, does anyone know where I can get a replacement? And is there a modification, or does it have to be the rubber one again? Lastly, is the pulley retaining bolt normal thread, or left hand thread?
Hope someone out there can help.
