    2000 Ford Puma 1.7

    A 14 year old cambelt has to be changed, should have been done years ago, the miles don’t matter at all however low as belt perishes and will break. Gates only give you 3 years and low mileage, Ford much longer but their belts no longer available so had to fit Gates to ours. Enjoy it when finished.

    Cambelt manufacturers?

    ⚠️ Fitted them to our Puma last year. Only issue is the none Ford cam belt kit guarantee is rubbish compared to Fords being only 2 years or 30,000 miles against the Ford kit that was 5 years or double that mileage?! Not changing ours every 2 years, had the car from new.

    Puma kick plate

    Ours fitted ok and used tape as it came on them. Sills are very good so any minor water it may trap won’t do them any harm. Would have liked to have kept to original plates but these look good and give greater protection.

    Values rise for Ford Puma 1.7 Thunder

    We’ve got our silver 2001 1.7 with lux pack with an agreed insurance value of £3,000 this month. They said we could insure it for more but that would need further communications evidence to agree a higher figure if they were happy to. No rust or damage always dealer serviced which helped the...

    Values rise for Ford Puma 1.7 Thunder

    Agree. Don’t think they will ever make big money, unless the Racing that already is, but if in very good condition will be worth a little, certainly more than depreciating to zero that the majority have as trashed and rotted into the ground!
