  1. Hi all Wondered if anyone can help me Im loosing water daily and sometimes way beyond the min mark in collant tank, I have looked everywhere and the only place I can see it leaking from is from a joint to the engine (photos attached) I don't know what part it is and can I get a replacement gasket to go on this joint ? Or maybe make one ? I take it I would have to drain the coolant too before removing the joint ? any suggestions would be most appreciated :) Cheers Rich

  4. Help With A New Radio

    Oh noooooo ! I take it there are no convertors then ? So best option is probably just buy a surround and buy a normal cd player, which does mp3's etc then ! Cheers

    I have a focus mk 1.5 I think , 2003 I want to upgrade my radio, was thinking of just putting a normal one in but didn't want to loose my steering controls !

  6. Hello, I have a 6000 cd radio (says cd changer compatable) and i belive its possible to get 3.5mm out through aux ? The green connector on back is the aux input ? Found this on ebay http://www.ebay.co.u...5-/300471701053 but says i need this one below as i dont have a aux button http://www.ebay.co.u...=item45f66c699e Only thing that confuses me is it says "To Access the new AUX feature you will need to press the CDC button" I cant find a CDC button !!! Also is there any thing special in that box for £45 ? Can i not just make a lead from 3.5mm and solder wire to pins or use connectors? Thanks

My instrument cluster digital display is loosing its digits that make up the numbers and the reset button doesnt work. and it doesnt clock any miles on the mileage trip count (the cars mileage is ok and adds up) Can i just buy another instrument cluster from same year car, will it show my current correct mileage or will it show the mileage from the car the old instrument cluster is from (ie car from scrapyard) Dont know if my cars mileage is stored on the instrument cluster its self or somewhere else on the car ? Thanks Rich :)

  14. Hi all, I've fitted a towbar and im trying to get a wire from boot to battery to power relay. Ive got it from boot to front passenger footwell, but im now stuck trying to get it through to battery ! I've seen a rectange plastic box and the surround that comes off behind dash which looks like it must be the main exit / entry as lots of wires go through it to bonet but cant seem to get a wire through it ! Also i cant see what taking the plastic surround off the box does, it doesnt seem to make it any easier ! Any help would be apreicated ! Thanks Richard
