Ford has slashed the prices of selected parts for Transit and Transit Connect models of at least four years old by more than a half in a move to attract older vans into its workshops.

The Motorcraft 4+ initiative covers brakes/brake linings, filters, clutches, flywheels and chassis running gear. For example, Ford said a replacement clutch slave cylinder on a 2000–2006 Ford Transit is now up to 58% cheaper – a saving of up to £210.
