  1. Does it get louder when slowing down and also when going around roundabouts? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  2. Always enjoy reading you updates Mitch, like what your doing. Keep up the good work. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  3. I had the same problem on my mondeo last year and it was oil cooler thermostat, I went all the way to Nottingham from Manchester and it never went above 70 degrees. Think it was about £18 from main dealer. It's something you could change yourself. But like the others said its always worth changing the radiator thermostat too. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  4. Fiesta 1.25 Zetec Clutch Problem

    Sounds like it still might have some air in the system. Try back bleeding the slave cylinder. You need to take the cap of the brake fluid reservoir and use something to pump the fluid back through the bleed nipple on the Slave cylinder pushing the air out of the brake fluid reservoir. I find using one of them small pump oil cans full of brake fluid useful. It's something I've only really had to do with fords never used it on any other model of car.

  5. Diesel Fuel Filter Priming Mk3

    Usually you can just fill the new fuel filter up with fuel put all the pipes back on and it will start and run with no problems. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  6. Buzzing Around Injectors

    I think the buzzing and beeping is normal when turning off. I'm not sure why or what causes it but I've heard a lot of Mondeos do it. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. My Mk2 Focus Saloon

    Looks really good mate and looking forward to seeing the rest your progress. I really like the focus in the saloon model looks smart. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  8. Mk3 Mondeo Build Thread

    Hi tom, thanks for the comments. Sounds like you've got some good plans for yours ahead of you :-). It's lowered on eibachs 40mm front 30mm on the rear. If yours is the euro 4 engine then when you blank the egr i think it will throw the EML light on should run better as long as you clean out any gunk in the EGR and inlet manifold before blanking. I believe some people live with it and just check the codes once a month. I've been told mine sounds pretty good with the decat for a diesel but I've also got a catback stainless steel powerflow exhaust. I can make a video of it if you'd like to hear? Having the decat didn't affect the emissions passes every year without it. As long as your mondeo isn't piling put black smoke you should be good. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  9. Mk3 Mondeo Build Thread

    Hi, cheers for the comments Gareth I'm glad I've inspired you to start tinkering with your own :-). You should put up a post of yours when you start tinkering or if you already have done some mods. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  10. I was looking at getting some new shockers all round for my Mondeo and when looking some don't say if it's for hatchback or saloon, it just says B4Y or B5Y?? Mines a hatchback and I think it's a B5Y can anyone confirm this? Thanks Ben Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  11. Dohboys St220 Wagon

    It's pretty easy doesn't take much to bleed because your only getting the fluid through the caliper. I had a mate round when I was doing mine so just got him to pump the brake pedal while I bled at the bleed nipple. You can get bleed kits off eBay that allows you to do it by yourself if you struggle to find someone at the time of fitting. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

    Nice looking St you've got there mate loving the colour. Them calipers look like they've been painted well and a good choice on colour too. I've just done the St brake upgrade on mine and can't believe how much of a difference it makes. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  14. Mk3 Mondeo Build Thread

    Bought these off eBay the other day can't wait to get them fitted and hopefully feel the difference. Focus st225 calipers discs and pads. Always felt that the standard mondeo brakes feel abit lacking. Gonna get them cleaned up over the next week and I think I'm gonna paint them red, should hopefully look good behind the black wheels.

  15. Hi, I'm looking to do the focus st brake conversion on my mondeo and just wanted to make sure on some details before I bought them. Is it the brakes from the focus st225? Also is there a certain year they need to be from? Thanks Ben Sent from my KFJWI using Ford OC mobile app
