  1. Zero Fuel Pressure - Possible Causes?

    The above sounds like an issue just identified on my Galaxy TDCi 2007. Engine stalled and would not start having been on slight incline with front of car raised. AA man identified a lackof pressure in fuel system. AA man took off engine cover and found air in fuel lines, clear tubes entering injectors. He spotted one of the fuel pipes on the left hand side top of engine had been rubbed and looked as if there was a slight cut in pipe. Temporary taped up and air vacuum pumped out and car started. On replacing large plastic engine cover, clever AA man compared the left hand edge where it sat over the fuel pipe and spotted a shiny area which looked like it had been rubbing. AA man then noticed that one of three rubber bungs which sits under the engine cover and locates on three spigots to secure it over the engine, was missing thereby allowing the plastic engine cover to sit lower and rub the fuel pipe. Anyone know where to find diagram of engine parts so I can identify the pipe to be replaced and find part number?
  2. Galaxy Mk3 Fog Light Unit Change

    Greg, Thanks for directing me to the www.fordmpv.com site ..... I didn't know about that one. There thread suggests ..... <Quote> The handbook is not very helpful . There are 2 holes in the bumper under each foglight. Using an 8 mm socket and extension bar through the holes you undo the 2 screws holding the foglamp in place and withdraw the screws carefully ; The handbook then shows the foglamp being pulled forward - what it doesn't show are 2 plastic clips on top of the foglamp which need to be pressed down to allow the foglamp out. For this you need something thin and flat to insert. So it seems the lamp unit is accessed from the rear but falls out of the front of the bumper. Can wait to give it a go. Will report back with results.
  3. Galaxy Mk3 Fog Light Unit Change

    Adrian, Did you get an answer (other than the one above which is not exactly helpful and I suspect incorrect). I have the same problem but other internet posts seem to suggest either; 1. Remove the inner plastic wheelarch to get at it or; 2. Remove the under bumber plastic tray which I favour as it seems there are about 8 screws and three plastic locating clips which should give access to the lamp unit. I will be tackling mine over the next week as the glass lense has cracked so would appreciate a reply. I think removal of the whole front bumper is a bit extreme. Hoping not to spend more than an hour completing the job or will be soooo annoyed.

  5. 6000Cd Set Volume Level On Starting Car

    I too am looking for the answer. Very frustrating having to turn the volume down everytime you start the engine. Unfortunately, I didn't get an audio manual with the car.
