  1. Had A Small Accident.

    Okay, so this is difficult, removing the main back screw is dead easy, the arch material has a little give that makes the screw easily accessable, but my god the little placeholder screw at the other end, its RIGHT at the main chassis meaning you cannot get a screw to fit dead on to it, so having ot find an L shaped Phillips head ( yes, phillips head, one end torx, makes no sense!), to remove it.

    Is the plastic clip reusable after the fix?
  3. Had A Small Accident.

    Cheers for that, aprt arrived today from a seller on Ebay, genuine part, will know with the help of a mate on the weekend if I can do it myself. I look at the touch up pens but I think I might have one already.
  4. Had A Small Accident.

    Do you know of have any clue if the main bolt that attaches it is on the under side of the wheel arch, IE you have to pull the cover off to revleal it? Also, where you get the touch up pen!?
  5. Had A Small Accident.

    Hmm wonder if it might be just worth taking to my local garage then?
  6. Had A Small Accident.

    Thanks, just after posting I went looking, not to bad about £20 seems to cover the part, I can only see in pictures one bolt at the back, seems I have to replace the entire unit, so will have to wait till morning to have a look under to see whats what..really hope its not a big job!
  7. Had A Small Accident.

    So, I reversed into a small poll, no real damage, but I did manage to smash my bottom right ( facing) reflector/ light, or what I assume is the rear fog light cover. Anyone replaced one of these and know where I would get such a part from?
  8. Bonnet Wont Close Properly

    So I have this problem, its the same locking mechanism as the previous fords as well. The cable being loose is normal, it only sits tight when locked down. When you open it spray WD40 or get some oil all over the lock, the actually locking hook is on the backm you can move it up and down with a screw driver alittle and that works the lubricant in. should work every time.
  9. Front Interior Pillers

    Ill give that a go cheers!
  10. Front Interior Pillers

    Its not sitting out of place though, as in nothing looks to be bulging and its never been removed before.
  11. Front Interior Pillers

    Its the one at the windscreen, its the plastic interior, its has some movement in it, push it in with my hand and it stops for a little while only to come back. You had this as well?
  12. Front Interior Pillers

    I have a rattle from a tiny loose sitting in the interior front pillar. Does anyone know how these are seated/ attached? I image they are just pushed in snaps, was thinking re-seating them might help solve it. After all these years its the ONLY rattle I have in the car, so kinda annoying!

    lol, yea you never know, if its happened to me maybe someone else was as unlucky. Looking at the rubber point at the front of the window though it looks like the rubber seal doesnt sit tight to the window, so nut sure if im actually going to be able to get the new one to fit, i remember what a bugger it is to fit them as well!
  14. Climair Deflectors.

    I looked, couldnt find anything!
  15. Climair Deflectors.
