  1. Reverse camera

    Hope it not Windows 10😀
  2. Reverse camera

    What's wrong with mirrors? Cameras are great on a 40 tonner but a car I'm not sure
  3. Red Ruby's new rims

    Looks very nice, not my favourite size wheel from a comfort point of view, but they do look good
  4. Faulty message (bonnet open)

    Yep bonnet switch, can also set the alarm off, a quick clean up normally sorts it.
  5. Mondeo MK2 alloy wheel nuts

    I may be wrong but they look like nuts for steel wheels, did you swop,steel wheels for alloys?
  6. Tuesday night I hit a dear on the way home, deer dead. Fair amount of damage to the front drivers side, spent yesterday splicing the bits together and now have a decent repair as long as you don't look to close, interestingly I looked online for some parts namely wheel arch liner and clips, also front under tray (since repaired) wheel arch liner could be had for £25+ VAT+ P&P clips around £5 so about £47 and I would have to wait for delivery 2-3 days, knowing the couriers round here I'd say 5 days, So rang the local dealer yesterday afternoon about 1400hrs got a price of £40.23 for the lot, just had a phone call saying they are now in stock and ready for me to pickup, great service I thought, Mccrae !Removed! in Perth
  7. Mondeo keyless start faulty

    Oh bu55er
  8. Mondeo keyless start faulty

    If you bought it last week take it back to the dealers, it's still under warranty
  9. mooned titanium wheel size change

    Yes the 19's will fit but prepared for what I think is a harsh ride also I find they tramlinea lot especially in the wet, I got ride of my 19's and got 17's also run 16's in the winter much better ride on them and the handling isn affected, also fuel economy is better on the smaller wheels certainly with the 16's as they are narrower, the 17' give an acceptable compromise look and ride wise.
  10. Hope he cleaned off the corrosion that was there it doesn't take much.
  11. It's just on rubber grommets and spikes and should just lift of takes a bit of effort
  12. Just cleaned it up time, not money.
  13. I had a multitude of electrical malfunctions, wipers doing there own thing fans coming on, all traced to corrosion in the fuse box in the engine bay not the contacts but at the underside of the box
  14. MK3 Mondeo oversteer

    Was it a proper 4 wheel alignment or just the simple one. Bushes may give oversteer problems but you normally get a knocking noise it the are worn. do you have decent tyres or just cheap ones, right tyre pressures?
