      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Rear Bushes

    Hi fellow ford nuts. I have a Puma and it failed it's mot on the bushes on the trailing arms, i decide to drop the arms one side at a time and replace them this i did and can't move em! my friend owns a workshop and he said drop the axle and bring it in here and ill press em out for you then press in the new ones. class i thought! so i had a look and what 8 bolts or so per side? then i came to undo the stupid 8 mill bolts hold in the ABS sensors and yes they are siezed and now rounded off? so i followed the cable back to the plug unplugged it and not thinking the cable goes through the brake back plate! i dont particularly wish to disturb the brake pipes (the only other way) can i lop the heads of these 8mm bolts to remove the abs device or will i damage the sensor? or can i cut and rejoin the abs lead that comes from the back plate? any help would be appreicated, thanks in advance
