  1. Hi, Yes mine does this. I don't quite understand it! I'm running F4 I believe but I can check.
  2. How do you fit the aluminium pedal covers? I'm looking to do this myself!
  3. Does anyone know how this is done though!
  4. Hi, I had two tyres changed last week and the garage managed to damage the tyre pressure monitoring sensor on one of the wheels. They have ordered a new one but I need to know how to program the new sensor to the car. How do you do this? I've heard it's as simple as installing it and the car will retrain to the new sensor but I'm not sure. Thanks, suddste
  5. I have a 1.5TDCi and while it does do the bogging down thing occasionally, it's been really nice otherwise. The rev's jumping doesn't seem normal; mine doesn't do it. I would suggest doing a ECU reset by disconnecting the battery for 30 mins then re-connecting and going for a drive.
  6. Hi, I have the same navigation and dont have this issue, try disconnecting the battery so everything is dead and reconnect after 10 minutes. But I assume that the garage may have already done this.
  7. Hi, Are the mk3.5 sideskirts easy to take off and fit new ones? I would like to put Zetec S ones on if it's easy to do. I'm assuming that the mk3 is the same so if anyone has experience of that would be useful too. Thanks, suddste
  8. Roper, How did you get that S badge on the front grill? Is there a special mount for it?
  9. Hi, Do I wait for an admin to come across this thread or do I PM them?
  10. Surely the forum software would have an option to!?
  11. Okay this hasnt worked either. What could it be? I have no idea what it could be anymore!
  12. Have narrowed it down to it probably being the anti drain back valve; I found a similar pic here: It's the hole at the bottom where the oil filter slots in. I don't think I seated it properly so it allowed oil to drain back to the sump which makes sense when cold starting the car the oil has to be pumped round again! I've seated the oil filter properly (I hope) this time and I guess I will find out after a cold start tomorrow morning if this worked.
  13. Hi, Just wondering if it's possible to merge my JohnS account with account "suddste" so my suddste account is the main one? You will see that the IP address is the same used for both accounts for verification purposes. I wanted to be anonymous hence using the JohnS account but I don't mind anymore. Thanks, suddste
  14. Will do; thanks for your help people.
