  1. If you want to try and avoid having the window smashed, it's worth getting some stickers to say the obd port is disabled. There is a chance they won't see it, but it might at least reduce the chance of the glass being broken.
  2. I thought there was a screw each end?
  3. It's the same with every manufacturer I've had experience with. Recommended to be changed every 2 years, but not included in the standard schedule or price.
  4. I think some of the diesels did too, but can't remember which ones.
  5. The link to language pack 5 still goes straight to the file for me?
  6. Titanium will have height adjustable seat. I think there is a lever on the side of the seat base which you pump to adjust the height. Steering wheel is fully adjustable, the lever to unlock it is under the steering column. Should be in the manual. Also any dealer can help you with the car if you get stuck.

    They have effectively carried out a software recall. It's a mandatory field service action which must be carried out when the car is next in with a dealer. If you found a way of loading the old software it would void the warranty.
  8. Cabin air intake afaik.
  9. Sounds like the climate control sensor to me. There is a little fan inside it to move air across the sensor to more accurately measure the temp and humidity. Mine used to buzz on my Focus Tit X, even with the climate control switched off.
  10. So it is, lol. Naming system makes no sense... 6MTT450 is still 450Nm though.
  11. The 1.6 Ecoboost already puts out 270Nm on overboost. The funny thing is that the Mountune MP200 package for the 1.6 EB is warranty friendly, despite putting out 320Nm. I guess the box can cope with more than the design limit or it can just cope long enough not to fail during the warranty period, lol.
  12. It is called the B6 gearbox, or 6MTT250 (rated up to 285Nm). This is used on the 1.0 125PS, 1.6 150/180PS and 1.5 150/180PS Ecoboosts. The ST has a much higher rated, heavier gearbox, the MMT6 or 6MTT450 (rated up to 450Nm). The ST has the same gearbox as the 2.0 TDCi (in all power outputs, 150/163/185PS).
  13. Hi Alex

    You posted a pic and vid of your dashcam back in Feb here:

    I was thinking of adding one to my MK 3 titanium and was wondering which cam that is? as there are different versions/copies of that one on Amazon.

    Also, I am guessing you have DAB radio. I read in reviews of that kind of cam that sticks to the windscreen with M3 pads can interfere with the DAB signal through the windscreen. Some peeps have had their DAB completely cut out while the cam is powered up.Have you had any trouble with that?

    Many thanks

    Mr W

      Sorry Alex, one more thing. Did you cut down the rear cable housing bracket size down?

      Yep, just so it was a bit neater

  14. I'd say cheap screen. An electrical problem would prevent it working at all. Its just two electrical feeds one for each half of the screen (left and right)
  15. Ford SD cards are locked and encrypted.
