  1. What's the idea behind the two different tyre sizes on your car? Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  2. HEL can manufacture a custom made braided line for you if there is no kit.Give them a call in Exeter it's not a problem for them. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  3. Ha ha i always have loose change in hand ready to go,no faffing around in pockets for me.Although sometimes balancing items in the other hand can be awkward and occasionally dropping coins in the the aisle is not ideal.Lol. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  4. Personally I don't see the point of changing the shock absorbers if there is nothing wrong with them.I replaced my rear springs a couple of years because of corrosion.I always grease the suspension arms every 6 months to eliminate any creaks and groans,works well for me.

  5. I really enjoy driving around on my Avons and don't suffer any of what you have described,only to add my car is a mk1. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. All good fun owning a Ford.Lol. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.

  14. Do you have a splash guard underneath? Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  15. 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
