Welcome News in Transit

13 June 2014 | Updated 01 January 1970
Ford has reduced the price of selected parts for some of its Transit and Transit Connect models.

The move follows the recent launch of Motorcraft 4+ from Ford – a parts and service package targeting drivers of commercial vehicles and cars aged four years and older which can see the costs dropping by 58%.

Jon Wellsman, Ford of Britain Customer Service Division director, explained: “Small businesses need to watch every penny, and these price cuts on regular service parts will bring savings that customers really notice.”

A replacement clutch slave cylinder on a 2000–2006 Ford Transit is now up to 58% cheaper – a saving of up to £210. The Ford and Ford Motorcraft value range parts available at a reduced price also include:

  • Brakes: brake discs and linings.
  • Filters: oil filters, air filters, diesel fuel filters.
  • Clutches / flywheels: clutch kits, clutch release bearings and dual mass flywheels.
  • Running gear: wishbones / control arms, wheel bearings


These reductions come as Ford is completing the launch of its redesigned and expanded Transit range in Europe, including the all-new Ford Transit, Ford Transit Custom, Ford Transit Connect and Ford Transit Courier. With this new initiative in place, customers with older Transit and Transit Connect vehicles can also benefit from reduced ownership costs.
