  1. What a pillock!
  2. The switch to switch the front parking sensors on and off?
  3. Don't think you can program them with Elmconfig ......
  4. Factory fitted sensors on my mk2.5 titanium. Just an audio beep when reversing, no panel.
  5. umpteen people have gave you the same answer, rather than ignoring the advice why not take it to a garage and have done with it!
  6. Is this still ongoing? Once and for all you have two choices....1/ slacken the old ones and count the number of turns, put the new ones on to the same number of turns then go and get it tracked immediately. 2/ take it to a garage and just get them to do it!
  7. They each run excellent services although if it's problems your looking for, if you search hard enough you will find people who have had problems! Personally I use the RAC as it comes with my business class insurance and I've used them 3 times so far in the last 20 years with no problems. My son uses the AA and had no problems so really it's personal choice which one you want to go with. Just one 'survey' that has been done on the subject. http://www.driving.co.uk/news/the-ultimate-roadside-breakdown-test/
  8. Is your glass stamped with FORD on it? If so it will be original and the glass should be tinted.....tinted btw will be a very subtle tint, not black. Although you may not think the glass is tinted it probably is. Auto headlamps, check your light switch, it should have a position labelled 'auto'. If not then you don't have auto headlights! Dipping rear view mirror......there will be a toggle switch on the bottom of the mirror to 'dip' the mirror.
  9. Hasn't this already been answered in your 'other' forum posts?
  10. Where's the clips on the glass? When I replaced ONLY the glass in my Fiesta mk6 drivers mirror it was held in with double sided tape! (The backing plate which I did not replace had clips but not the glass) The OP stated ONLY the glass fell out, the backing plate is STILL in place so if she's replacing the glass it will hold in place with double sided tape.
  11. Has it had new springs? Correct size wheels?
  12. If it's only the glass that needs to be put back, use double sided sticky tape to hold it in!
  13. This should explain everything ..... http://www.howacarworks.com/steering/replacing-track-rod-end-ball-joints
  14. ECP owns Brembo? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brembo http://corporate.eurocarparts.com/news-and-events/detail/1211 Brembo are only a supplier to ECP (one of a few actually) Regarding the quality dropping I don't know where you have seen that as I have just put Brembo disks and pads (from ECP) on my focus and I can't fault them. The disks are coated on the exposed outer surfaces (not the braking surface) to hold back corrosion which they are still doing after several weeks of use whereas my dads fiesta mk7 just had new disks/pads and the outer faces were starting to show surface rust after 4 days!
  15. It's code D2 Panther Black http://uk.nexaautocolor.com/media/227358/nexa_autocolor__ford_colour_codes_2002_to_2012.pdf
