  1. I'll let you know how that goes lol
  2. Like the title suggests if you use the code off55 you will get 55% off car parts at https://www.gsfcarparts.com/ not sure how long its going to last but could be handy for some of you.
  3. I've ordered one anyway and i must say if anyone is after any car parts then take a look at GSF Carparts, promo code off55 to get 55% off. DMF was supposed to be £300 and i got it for £136. Same with the clutch, supposed to be £193 and i got it for £86. https://www.gsfcarparts.com/
  4. So should i get that done anyway seeing as the clutch is getting done?
  5. Cheers for the replies, i wont be getting the garage to do it now as i have found a mobile mechanic willing to fit the clutch for £130 which sounds really cheap but better than what the garage quoted. I don't think its the mass flywheel as that doesnt look like something the stops vibration, i could be wrong, the garage did say it had some sort of plastic bushes in it and the flywheel doesnt appear to have those.
  6. Hi, just a bit of advice, looks like my clutch needs replacing on my Mk3 Mondeo 2.0 TDCI 55 plate and the first garage i asked has quoted me £800, but that is with some plate he said i also needed that absorbed vibration etc between the clutch and the gearbox. Can anyone tell me what this plate is called, i think he said dual something or other but i was in shock at the thought of losing £800 i wasn't listening properly. Cheers
  7. Oils fine, the garage say i have a nice little car and stuff but i wont be happy until i get this sorted.
  8. I'm getting a bit of light grey smoke coming out under acceleration which can be a bit embarrassing at times, i've took the car to get a diag done and nothing came back injector wise. So i booked it in for a full check up and they have said they cant find anything wrong and that its normal for a car of this age, its a 55 plate. Now im under the impression that the car didnt come out of the factory like this so its age shouldnt be an issue, it should still be fixable in one way or another. Apart from a new egr and de coke what else can i do? Turbo clean maybe? All hoses are ok and ive been putting in diesel additive for a good few weeks now and booting it down the motorway to clear her out, but it just reappears the next time im driving. Scratching my head on this one....
  9. Hi and welcome, best thing i ever did was go back to Ford and their mighty TDCi engines ;)
  10. Found this on ebay so i think i'll buy one, job done! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/390813112658?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  11. Does anyone know of a replacement rear wiper arm that looks smarter than the standard one? Just think it looks a bit weedy and was hoping there was another sort i could fit to make it look nicer. Cheers
  12. Been in for a service, told it needs a new caliper as its leaking brake fluid and a new wheel bearing, thats fine, its the smoking on acceleration thats bothering me. Last time i owned a mondy it was a punctured turbo hose, this time im being told it could be injectors, and we all know thats £1000+ Ive since read that recoding the injectors fixes most issues with over fueling and smoking in my case, so thats what im going to go for, but failing that because i like the car so much i will pay the £1000 to have it fixed if it is the injectors. Any thoughts?
  13. If i've posted this in the wrong section please feel free to move it, should have checked first :)
  14. After a few years away i have ventured back into Ford land with a 55 plate 2.0 TDCi Mondeo and so far im over the moon. No doubt i shall be finding faults that need sorting so you may see me in the near future asking for help but so far so good. And here she is....
