  1. Is this a 2004 mk 1.5 if so I did it on my old car it's about 3 bolts and fidly but do able I took mine out and lubricated it up after I had burnt out 2 resistors put back in and all was good.
  2. Yes it does unscrew so you could clean it up underneath , my aerial was also stuck I undone it with mole grips which unfortunately marked it but reception is much better .
  3. Ive always pushed the clutch in on start up it dis engages the gearbox which allows all battery power to turn the engine over I was told, helps on cold mornings!
  4. Looks familiar just undo the bolts and pop it under it should be fine yeah star nut I think the aerial will become loose think I took it completely out to clean it s base
  5. I removed the plastic cover and found a correded snapped bar which I removed I cleaned it out inside the switch opening and just press the micro switch direct which opens the boot.The switch takes a bit of time to locate till you get used to where it is,I covered it with a piece of duck tape.
  6. My 2.0 petrol duratec does this sometimes starts next go tho it's not enough of a problem for me to bother about tho 👍
  7. Pull the pipes off the jets under the bonnet give them a good blow don't suck apparently it can make you really ill I did but wasn't fortunately .If there's no joy syphon the bottle I did this it brought loads of crap up
  8. Hi I had this problem I solved it by releasing the overhead light under the aerial once done undo the bolt holding the aerial and slip some copper wire or simular underneath re tighten, on the other end (wire approximately 5 inches long) put it under the earth bolt for the light this will work just make sure connections are good
  9. Did the battery thing no difference the yellow light and warning sign still there ?!!
  10. No I was thinking I'll do it tomorrow
  11. Bump!!
  12. Anybody had this problem ? Would disconnecting the battery help?
  13. Yes the garage did but it's not gone away they said it may go away when it detects the new pump or I'll have to come back
  14. Hi everyone so I've had a new power steering pump fitted and the message hasn't cleared on the display the garage said it may go on its own once the computer recognises the new pump anyone had experience of this ? Will it go on its own or will they have to try again? Cheers
  15. Hi did the car learn its self or did it need Ford Dealer intervention ? I have the same issue myself after having a new pump.
