  1. The main box still has a viewing card but the extra boxes don't. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. The reason that the mk scheme seems muddled is because Ford do not officially subscribe to one. They purely go bu the uear of the model. When buying parts, go by year to avoid problems. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Duratec refers to the engine type whereas Zetec is the build level. Concerning the engine performance, it could be a worn clutch plate. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. The vaccine only contains the previous years strain so only gives a small protection as the strain mutates every year. That's why it can't be cured once and for all. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. Check the wiper is getting power. If it's not then inspect the wiring in the rubber sleeve between the roof and bootlid, it's a known point for broken wires. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. Look at the VIN plate in the door shut on your car. Second box up on the left is your paint code, it will give the paint mixer the colour and year it was introduced. Colours do vary slightly depending on the year.
  7. I haven't done the job myself (thankfully) but i think I may be able to start you off. The speaker cover needs to come off so you can access the bolt(s) underneath. Pull the front side out without bending it too much and then you will see a trim clip at the back, you need a trim removal tool (bojo tools are preferred but may not be rigid enough to get the clip out properly) be cautious as they can snap. Get the tool in between the part outside the slot in the speaker trim and the door body and wiggle it out, there may be another (not 100% sure but be prepared to lever the second one out if it exists) and then the speaker trim should be removeable. Disconnect the speaker wires then the mirror wiring. The mirror bolt(s) is/are behind a grommet that pops out. Mirror should then come off, there is a lip at the top of the mirror mount trim so pull outwards from the bottom first. Some photos from my car that may assist you- Trim clip in detail- Metal trim tools- Plastic Bojo tools- Short of stripping my car back myself i can't advise further but hopefully this puts you on the right track.
  8. Have you thought of one of these?-
  9. Tilt the glass down as far as it will go and pull it towards you and the tabs will disengage. Just unclip the heater wires and then reverse to fit the new lens. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. Sky Q is indeed run on wifi. The main box has 2 inputs and acts as the main media server. You get a new dual channel router with the installation. All the extra boxes only need a power supply and a good wifi signal, no other input wires needed (although you can use a wired network if preferred). Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. As Ford Sony radios are actually Visteon with a Sony DSP circuit you'll be fine. I think they are more concerned with pure Sony rigs.
  12. He looks no older than when he was big in the 80's.

  14. No need to remove the mirror, just angle it down to it's lowest position and you'll see the tabs quite clearly. Insert a screwdriver into both tab points and push the tabs down with just enough force to disengage them then the cap will come off. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. Have you seen the Swim Cell brand of sealed bags? Our search divers use them and seem happy enough. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
