  1. When I resealed around the pollen filter it was where the pollen filter housing butts up against the bulkhead. When I remove the scuttle panel to get to the pollen filter there was no sealant at all in that area. Didn't know there was meant to be sealant on the scuttle panel. If there was where about is it meant to be.
  2. No my car has no sun roof. Was thinking of resealing around the lights anyway
  3. Hi guys I really need your help. For some time now I have been getting water collecting in the front passenger footwell, and no where else. Have had the wife directing a hosepipe over the area I thought it was coming in from, but could not see any water dripping/running inside the car. I have now done the usual things like:- 1) Replaced Pollen Filter and resealed behind it. Water still getting in. 2) Removed inner door seal as it looked like it was getting in there. Used silicon sealant around the lip and groove of door seal. Water still getting in. 3) Had door card off and everything seems ok. Have also checked in boot which seems dry. Also n/s rear carpet seems dry as well. I used to really love this car, but its now getting to the stage of I don't care anymore, but need to really get this water leak sorted out. Any advice would be very grateful, as I feel like putting a match to it as its doing my head in.
  4. Hi guys as most of you are aware of the problems I'm having with the heated drivers door mirror I have decided to replace both of the door mirrors, as I have now come across a pair of door mirrors even colour coded the same colour as my car, at a very reasonable price for the 2. The only thing at the moment I'm unsure of is if they are for a pre-facelift or facelift Mondeo. Does anybody know what if any difference there is, apart from I know that the facelift mirrors are slightly bigger in size glass wise. If that is the only difference that is something that does not bother me.
  5. Thanks for the replies guys. Bit of an update, checked the heated door mirrors again, and found as previously stated the passenger door gets nice and warm, but have now noticed that the drivers door mirror barley gats warm. From what I can now gather there is power getting to the mirror. So to me it sounds like either a bad connection or faulty heating element. May have to take a trip to my local scrap yard and aquire a replacement door mirror
  6. I see as Im not a regular poster nobody is prepared to help me
  7. Hi Guys need your help/advice. Looked through the forum but can not find a definitive answer. I bought my 54 Reg MK3 Mondeo early part of the year. Due to the cold frosty mornings, I've recently started to notice that my drivers side heated door mirror isn't working. The passengers side door mirror is getting warm as it should do, but not the drivers side. The connections behind the mirror seem ok from what I can see, as there is not much room. Also don't feel confident in trying to remove the mirror glass. I need to remove the drivers door card to reseal it as its leaking slightly. So could someone please tell me if the wiring that controls the heated door mirror is part of the wiring for the electric door mirror or is it separate I.e inside the door behind the membrane. I have read somewhere that sometimes it can be just a case of disconnecting it a few times to get it to work. Your help would be most appreciated.

  9. Well from what ive been told elsewhere is ive got no choice but to change all 4 tyres for the correct size, as my speedo and fuel consumption will be well out. Just what I did'nt need to hear when im totally skint and in the process of moving house
  10. Hi guys ive recently changed my prefacelift 2.0 Zetec Mondeo to a 2004 54 reg 1.8 Facelift Mondeo. Ive got a query about the tyres that came with the car. I know the standard size tyres that should be fitted to my car are 205/55/16, but its got 205/50/16 fitted. The spare is the standard/correct size. Would I be ok stiill running on these tyres, and just as an emergency/get me home if needed use the spare or would I need to change the spare to the same size as the others. The other thing I noticed and this might sound daft, is that there is a larger gap on the front between the top of the tyre and the wheel arch. I assuming its because its a smaller engine ie 1.8, and not the 2.0 engine, and the profile of the tyres. Your Advice would be most gratefull.

  12. When I bought my new Mondeo I got my engine cover and fixings off ebay. These fixings are for the petrol engine but you email them about ones for the diesel http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-MONDEO-MK3-DURATEC-HE-PETROL-1-8-2-0-ENGINE-COVER-STUD-PINS-2001-2007-/230910673444?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item35c3594224 Have a look here for the wheel centre cap your after http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=ford+centre+caps&_sacat=0&_from=R40
  13. Maybe not quite related but ive got a simular leak in roughly the same place. I managed to get under mine and have a look and mine is coming from the washer bottle pump itself. Got a new one waiting to go on when weather improves. The washer pipes seem ok but when I replace the pump im going to be putting cable ties on the pipes to keep them in place. Just a suggestion as to what else it could be
  14. Hi guys ive sold my old preface Mk3 Mondeo and just bought a 2004 54 Reg Facelift Mondeo, which im well pleased with. Ive got a small problem with it, as in water is leaking out around the washer bottle pump.. Ive had a look from underneath the car and pulled the pump out and checked the pipes attached to it, and they are still attached and seem ok. Also checked the rubbber seal in the bottle and that seems ok as well. I cleaned it all up and put it back together and refilled the washer bottle but it still leaks. The only place I can see water around the pump is the area where the 2 elbows come out of the pump and is dripping down from there onto the floor. My thinking is due to the very cold weather we are having is that at some point the washer bottle has frozen and in trying to use the washers has split/cracked one of the elbows on the pump. I have ordered a new replacement washer pump off ebay, in the hope that this cures the leak. What are your thoughts on this or could I be right in what I have put
  15. Ive just sold my old 2001 Y reg prefacelift 2.0 Zetec Mondeo for a good price, and bought a 2004 54 reg facelift 1.8LX Mondeo. Totally love the new car. Just got a couple of small issues that need doing, which I can sort myself
