  1. Yours is the face lift with integrated lights?if so,to be honest I find the easiest way is to open up the bonnet undo the top light fixings and dislocate the light unit,remembering the unit is connected by wires.At the back of the unit you can see a cover secured in place by a wire clip,release the clip and pop the cover off ,you now have access to the bulbs.

  2. When my DMF broke got in the car in the morning after a long drive the day before and it wouldn't start.Called the rescue service out,the guy managed to get it going and I crawled to my local garage.So from this I would say one of the symptoms of a imminent DMF fail is not being able to start the car.

  4. Yes,i stand corrected 30 days,even if you don't like the item and you order it online you can ask for a full refund. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  5. I found it was a question of elimination although I have a MK1.The first thing I did was take out the air vents,silicon and pop back in.Then siliconed the mating surfaces on the rear light cluster(a pain if replacing a bulb)and screw plug and screw.If that doesn't work you will have to look deeper.

  6. If you order online with your credit card your consumer rights are extended.If you return item within 14 days of purchase you are entitled to a full refund,you should be put back into the same position before you took out the purchase,it's the law,don't take any nonsense from them,unfortunately sometimes it's hassle and many just give up the pursuit of a few quid.

  8. I agree with artscot79 there is no hassle lubricating bushes every 6 months,like I do,no squeaks here too,it comes under general maintenance and looking for potential future problems.Why do members get shirty when he makes valuable contributions to this site and is trying to help.HAPPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.

  9. Merry Christmas.Why not drive your car to a friendly local independent garage and ask them if you could use their ramp for a second opinion,I'm sure they will allow you to have a look as well. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  10. Push the front corners down and hear if you can isolate the noise. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  11. I invested in a tilting lift,the rubber floor runs along most of the length of the sill spreading the load,a lot safer. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
