  1. I own a lift and tilt, bought it on eBay second hand for just over £200. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  2. 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.

  3. 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
  4. Push the front corners down and hear if you can isolate the noise. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  5. 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
  6. One problem with wood is under stress it will split. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  7. Hi buddy,try one of these on your sill and jack up high enough for the axle stand to be positioned where you want Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  8. A healthy battery should be at 12.5 /12.6 volts.I would get the battery tested. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  9. I know very little about electronics and this will probably confirm it lol but will the magnets interfere with the iPad circuitry,just saying. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  10. Yes,Jordan I am considering paint stripper,I do have some really strong stuff knocking around.Thanks for that. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  11. I don't think the tyre fitter wanted to damage the new paint job which is fair enough. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  12. Yes the tyres are 215/45/17 the same as on the ST 170 and yes they have powder coated the internal mating surface.I think i'm going to try washing up liquid first,see if that works. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  13. I think I'm going to buy a 80 grit flap wheel and sand the internal centre down and remove the paint. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  14. The alloy wheel centres won't fit on the hub.I've just had the wheels refurbished my fitter seems to think the new paint on the inside of the centres is so thick that it's too tight to get on.Should I burnish the internal centre down or maybe take it to a machine shop and get it hollowed out to the same as my OEM alloys?

  15. Hi everyone,does anyone know if the ST 170 alloys is a straight swap to my MK 1 1800 diesel because I took the alloys to my tyre fitter for the upgrade and said they don't fit ha ha so I've got 4 alloys with brand new tyres in the boot at the moment. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
