  1. Hi, Was just wondering if anyone knows if belt tensioner's for the fan belt and alternator are quite easy to fit or not? Thanks, Lauren
  2. Probably does, mine's done 105,000! Oops! I have pretty much rebuilt this car since buying it nearly 2 years ago, fingers crossed this will be the last repair for a while! Thanks
  3. Brill, thanks, the ebay one is the exact one I'm looking at Thanks

To use it, follow the steps: * Insert Key but do not turn it on * Press and hold the Trip Meter Reset Button * While holding the reset button, start your car and continue holding the button * Within 10 seconds, the display should change to "test" in LCD font and the needles will do a full sweeping. Release the Button Pressing the button will now cycle through some 17 different modes * 1.Shows a Gauge Sweep * 2. Shows all 8's on the LCD (LCD TEST) * 3. Illuminates all the bulbs on the dash * 4.

  5. Hi all, I wonder if anyone can help. I've got a very poorly cat on my 52 plate ST170. I rang my local Ford dealer today and they quoted me £908 for the full cat or £135 for the flexi pipe! I have already had a quote for a full cat from an independent garage at £342 fitted. I've looked on google for the part I need and I think I've found it just need anyone to clarify it for me as the price is drastically different from the price Ford quoted. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Lauren
