  1. 2007 Mk3 Mondeo hatchback I have a taillight bulb out on each side. It looks as if there are 3 on each side. List says there are 2 different bulbs, a 566 and a 207. On each side it's the one closest to the centre of the car if that makes sense. Any idea which bulbs I need.
  2. Doesn't sound like a good day at all. Re: the wipers...try tightening the nut that holds them in place, or even loosening them as 'too loose' or 'too tight' could be the cause of your problem.
  3. Hi Jonro You are 100% correct on all points ........which I discovered this afternoon. It's not ideal so I think the headunit will go, but it'll do until I have the time to get it sorted.
  4. OK, so I've been looking at replacing my 6000CD headunit with a bluetooth one for music and handsfree calls. Whilst poking around the car today I found an 'aux in' port in the glovebox. I knew I had a lead somewhere in the house to fit and when I found it I discovered it had a 3.5mm jack plug on each end. So I plugged it in to the car socket and also to my phone. I pressed the 'aux' button on the headunit and hey presto!.... my music is playing through all speakers. I then went a step further and called a friend on my phone. His call came through the speakers very clearly and he could hear me 100% clearly. So it appears as thought it's a free (albeit not via bluetooth) solution that has cost me nothing. The lead has to hang out of the glovebox but I have managed to do that in a tidy manner and doesn't look bad. Now all I have to do is take it for a drive and see if another person can hear me speaking clearly whilst driving as I am relying on the microphone from the phone.....unless someone has a solution for that bit to enhance my voice! But all in all, I'm rather pleased :-)
  5. My 2007 Mk3 Mondeo has the 6000 CD headunit. I was thinking of replacing it with a double DIN headunit to give me bluetooth. I have 2 questions: 1. Will I lose the steering column controls (not the end of the world if I do) 2. Will a standard double DIN headunit fit straight in or are there some that will fit better than others. I know a fascia plate will probably be required too. This is what I was thinking of (OR something similar) as a replacement... Many thanks
  6. Thanks Paul, I'll have a look at that.
  7. It works on my Mk3 Mondeo Edge.
  8. I tried some of those blue coloured things in the past. They did look very white indeed and they lit up everything in front of long as it was no more than 10 feet away. I had to stop at a petrol station the first night I used them and get ordinary halogen bulbs. The amount of lumens those things give out is friggin dangerously low. DO NOT BUY THEM!!
  9. If it's possible to remove all the vinyl and have the paintwork buffed and returned to original (without a stripe) then it may be worth considering.
  10. Thanks Tom. The brake lights are working perfectly so it can't be the brake switch. If it ain't the clutch switch then I guess it must be the steering wheel controls that are faulty......I think! lol Or is the throttle body thingy a potential cause.....
  11. Hi Tom Without meaning to sound totally stupid, how do I check them and where can I find them !! Thanks
  12. can anyone offer any advice on this!
  13. It may be useful to add that the buttons on the cruise control switches do not illuminate when the lights are on. I don't know if that makes a difference to the potential cause of the fault.
  14. Thanks guys Yes I have pressed the on button on the left side then pressed the set button. Nothing happens.
  15. The problem is, it ain't working. The only other feature on the steering wheel is the horn but that works ok. On start up you can see the cruise control light come on and disappear and I know the car has cruise control fitted. I know there are potentially a few causes so I was wondering how to start the process. Maybe the fuse is the offending part and it would be the easiest fix but I don't know where to find it. Any help is greatly appreciated.
