  2. Floor mats

    Better on the mats than soaked into the carpet and foam. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Definitely and all taken on board. It's quite nice when all the little bits of knowledge I had about how engines work all come together when the missing pieces are put into place. Besides, the tools can be kept or passed onto someone else needing to do this job - hoping that I will be able to get some video, or at least a full set of pictures of all the steps - as it seems there is no real good guide for doing it! It's still cheaper buying kit + tools and 3 hours of my time, than working the 36 hours required to pay a garage to do it.

  5. Mark 1.5 petrol questions

    Hey all. I haven't owned a petrol engined car for some time and would just like to ask if my economy is right or wrong. I put 10 quid in my old punto 1.9 diesel and I could get 100 miles out of it at a push, maybe 90 to be safe. I put 20 quid in my focus and have achieved 130 miles. Is this normal? It's a 2002 1.6 zetec. My running around has been the same with both cars. It isn't even fast, it's very smooth, but fast it isn't, my punto would destroy it. Unfortunately that has gone to the car breaker in the sky. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    The slow wipers can indicate an electrical fault. Recreate the day, chuck bucket loads of water over it and get someone to throw hundreds of little ice cubes at it, then disable alarm, go from there :-)

  8. Number Plates Years

    Putting a newer reg on would be classed as misrepresentation / fraud. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. Number Plates Years

    Just a random question but does anyone know why you can make a car look older by putting an older plate on but you can't make a car look newer, is it to do with selling it?
  10. ford just quoted £226 for a second-year service. reduced to £190 after a bit of a haggle. ended up taking it to Halfords who did the job for £135. on both years I've asked ford for a price they have been close to £100 more and I can't see me getting that back at the other end
  11. According to this compatibility list you are correct.
  12. Floor mats

    yep. lol
  13. How to remove wax

    Try looking at the website of the polish manufacturer you've been using. You may find your answer there.
  14. you have done it correctly from what i can make out. the idea of slackening the cam sprockets is to allow the timing to be set as close to perfect as possible. By not doing so you are assuming they are bang on already.
  15. Floor mats

    Ain't you posh lol
  16. Yeah 70 mm is for mk7 7s ... I think 🤔🤔😮😮

  18. Haunted Car

    Today we've had quite a large hail shower and quite a lot of rain... At 6pm one of my daughters shouted to me that the car alarm was going off. I went out and unlocked the car to stop it. When I was going to pick up daughter #2 I was passing the focus in the wife's car and noticed the interior light was on, the indicators were flashing as if the hazards button was pressed and the front window wipers were moving slowly. As I was in a rush I couldn't stop to look. When I got back (15mins later) it had stopped. I popped the bonnet but it doesn't look like there was any water on the fusebox Any suggestions other than getting a good priest?

    Mk2.5 Zetec Bought standard & this was a couple of months later. Mondeo Alloys, -50mm lowered, Sony 6-disc headunit, White bulbs, Pressed plates, De-wiper/de-badged rear, Euro reverse light, Interior light with map lights..... ..... and I'm about done

  22. Floor mats

    ive got rubber mats all round for winter and carpet mats for summer.
  23. I'm sure they were going for around £40 or £39.98. Also just ordered them for my fiesta 😊. I don't think this kit needs anything going to the battery as it would get its power from the sidelights and indicators. Also what size did you get? Was it the 70mm one?
  24. Sudden Drop in MPG

    Tom don't know what your doing wrong with your tdci currently getting over 67 mpg on the trip and around 60 real life mpg with mine ha! Currently freezing out aswell! Mpg has dropped a bit since the summer and expect to fall a little bit further during the cold months.
  25. It changed in April 2014 I believe. That doesn't mean cars registered, it's cars built before April 2014.
  26. Thank you very much for this! Has been extremely helpful
  27. How are you viewing the software version in your car? I just searched through what seemed like all the system info sections and could not see it... Could you tell me the file path you took to get to this screen? Thanks!
