  1. Reflection Shots

    Pic of mine after a polish and wax a couple of weekends ago. Nice reflection of the roof in the bonnet lol Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  2. Fiesta Mk7 Display Not Turning Off?

    Try taking the fuse out for the radio and putting it back in. I think the same fuse controls the blowers too so they might come on full blast when you remove it. My gf had the same problem on her 2010 fiesta. I did this and it was fine after that. If that doesn't fix it it might require an update via an IDS. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  3. Performance exhaust for mk7 zetec 1.25

    If that's what you want mate go for it. :-) I agree with Danny the fabricated exhaust would be a good choice as you can choose however you want it. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  4. Nice looking ST you've got there mate, shame your getting rid but onwards and upwards with the RS :-). How much for the induction hose, floor mats, boot mat and splitter? You can send me a pm if you like I would of sent you one but the app won't let me for some reason. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  5. Does it get louder when slowing down and also when going around roundabouts? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  6. Always enjoy reading you updates Mitch, like what your doing. Keep up the good work. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. 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
  8. 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.

  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
