Question

I have a ford fiesta R registration. It is an 1800 LX diesel model. Assuming the garage where I purchased it from in January 2005 is giving me the correct information, the cam belt was changed when I bought it with 44,000 miles on the clock. It has now done 88,000 miles. I was told it should have a life of 72,000 miles, but does it need changing sooner due to the age of the cam belt with 44,000 miles of the 72,000 miles completed?

Question

The gearbox in my Fiesta had been rattling when I changed gear for a little while and the other day the gear box just dropped down. It has not fallen out completely but it has dropped down and is sitting low such that the car is not driveable. Is it most likely that the gearbox has just come loose and can be repositioned and fixed back into place or does it sound like I will need a new one? Thanks, Jonny
