Crankshaft pulley torque on 2005 1.4 FXJA engine
« on: November 08, 2018, 11:38:06 AM »
Hi All.
I'm looking to change my timing belt on my little Mazda2.
Howere, I seem to have differing advice on the torque for the crankshaft bolt.
Haynes and some details from continental say its 40Nm, then 90 degrees. While others have found that this is not enough, and suggest tightening it much tighter ~90Nm and 90 degrees.

Has anyone got any experience with this?
Any help is really appreciated!

Ok, I've done a bit more digging around and it seems that the fiesta Haynes manual is correct. It is 45Nm+90 degrees.
There is also an impressively detailed thread on one of the Fiesta forums for the same engine as mine.
