  1. I'm having two Avons fitted to rear soon,I paid £144 last time with all four wheels balanced at my local. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  2. I have Avons zv5 on mine and can confirm they perform well in the wet and ware well.A good all round tyre in my opinion,there maybe a slight issue with road noise for some but I don't find it intrusive. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  3. All good fun owning a Ford.Lol. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  4. I've glued a layer of sound proof foam to the back of my carpet.This has made the carpet more rigid and a snug fit. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  5. There is no support.Sounds like your boot carpet has lost it's rigidity.Sounds like the carpet has become sodden with water at some point and lost it's shape. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  6. The trailing arm is called different names.I think technically it's a control blade but i've heard it been called a tie-bar and as above some call the bush a butterfly bush. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  7. I fitted fit and forget polyurethane bushes last summer on my mk1.I left the subframe alone and used a grinder to free the suspension arms. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  8. Hi,I always try to use OEM if possible as well.The fordpartsuk website is usually cheaper and they do a click and collect.When I buy from my local Ford parts department I take a print off of the parts I need from the fordpartsuk site and my local will match the website price.In the past I have bought Ford oil but recently I have started buying Halfords when there is a sale on,Christmas is a good time to buy and have managed some half price bargains.

  9. Do you have a splash guard underneath? Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  10. The correct level is halfway between the min and max when cold.So top up with a mix of 50% recommend coolant and 50% water.Hope this helps. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  11. Ok buddy,if you don't know the history of the belt and the tensioner is running rough ,it's best practice to replace both at the same time,cost a tad over £200 at an independent,a lot more at Ford.Hope this helps.
  12. Have a look at the air filter,it may need replacing.You could take the opportunity to upgrade your filter which might improve your mileage and performance but don't forget to inform your insurance company. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  13. Try a different fob battery. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  14. I've just had my rear brake pipes,flexible hoses and bleed nipples replaced on my mk1.I had a look at what was needed to be done and decided to use my local garage to sort the brake lines out,took them 4 hours labour,cost £200.I fitted and upgraded the flexi hoses with hex braided stainless steel brake hoses,bleed nipples and bled the system.p> Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  15. Sorry just seen the top of your post,looks like a mk1 to me,lol,shows how much I know. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
