  1. Zetec Or Titanium

    HI MATE, I BOUGHT A S-MAX 1.8 D TITANIUM 56 PLATE WHEN THEY CAME OUT, NO REGRETS, ALWAYS BETTER TO GO FOR THE TOP MODEL IF YOU CAN, AND WHEN YOU TRADE IN YOU GET THAT BIT EXTRA BACK SO YOU REALLY DON'T LOSE ANY MONEY. I LOVE THE CAR, NO REGRETS. REGARDS BUDGIE
  2. Tailgate Won't Open

    HELLO, SUCCESS, I HAVE SOLVED MY TAILGATE PROBLEM, IT WAS A STICKY CATCH!!. I HAD TO CLIMB INTO THE BOOT, AND REMOVE THE TAILGATES INNER PANEL. TO THE RIGHT AND LEFT THERE IS 2 SMALL PULL OUT PANELS IN THE TAILGATE MAIN PANEL , REMOVE THEM, THEY ARE SHAPED LIKE KIDNEYS. NOW YOU HAVE TO USE A LITTLE FORCE, NOT TO MUCH, GRIP THE PANEL ON ONE SIDE WHERE YOU TAKEN OUT ONE OF THE SMALL KIDNEY SHAPE PANELS, AND PULL SHARPLY. IT SHOULD COME AWAY. NOW KEEP PULLING UNTIL YOU REMOVE THE WHOLE PANEL. MOVE THIS OUT OF THE WAY. NOW GET SOMEONE TO PRESS THE FOB ON THE KEY TO OPEN THE BOOT AND AT THE SAME TIME TRY TO OPEN THE BOOT PHYSICALLY. WITH YOU INSIDE THE BOOT BANGING WITH THE PALM OF YOUR HAND AGAINST WHERE THE CATCH IS AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL OPEN. WHEN OPENED GET SOME, WD-40 OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT AND SPRAY CATCH UNTIL IT WORKS FREELY AGAIN, JOB DONE, THANK GOD! :D
