  1. Lower miles on engine than on the car

    Only option other than finding someone who can match engine numbers to registrations (VOSA?) is if you can obtain the registration of the donor car and check the recorded mileage on the last MoT report. https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/?_ga=1.219117456.865417927.1477904396 Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. Lower miles on engine than on the car

    You must record the mileage when the engine is pulled. That should be revealed to the next buyer and so on. From that reading, the new mileage can be calculated, and by addition the total mileage is available to any buyer. Seeing as mileage is now recorded when carrying out an MoT and readily available to view online any clocking backwards for any reason is still illegal. The exception is if fitting a new cluster whereby the odo can be advanced to the correct mileage and the action recorded in your service logbook / reported to DoT & DVLA.

  4. Yellow headlight tint

    Flashing brake lights are an MoT fail. Do they do this on purpose or do you have a fault? If it's a fault then probably an earthing error in the tail light cluster. If on purpose did you fit a module to cause it? I know some cars come with flashing brake lights from factory but only activate under heavy braking (a la emergency stop). I believe some BMW models do this but as this is EU type approved it supercedes any UK laws. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. Lower miles on engine than on the car

    If you change the engine, the mileage would stay the same to reflect the mileage on the body, suspension, components, interior etc, but it would no longer reflect the mileages of the engine. Even if you put a brand new engine with 0 miles on it you still can't legally change the odometer, becasue the rest of the car, gearbox, components, etc. would still have that much wear on it. Only thing you can legally do is keep the invoice for the engine from a garage or a receipt showing the mileage on the engine. You can not lawfully change the clocks to match the engine.

  6. headlights levelling

    If you have factory Zenon lights then no manual level adjustment is available. It is reliant on levelling sensors on the suspension. Non Zenon lights will have a manual adjustment wheel on the headlight control unit. If you have Zenons then it may be a duff sensor, fuse or relay. A faulty adjustor motor would affect only one light as it is highly unlikely for both motors to go at the same time. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. MK2.5 power socket under armrest faulty?

    The 10A label is to advise you not to overload the socket as it's tucked away in a place where fire could occur. A lighter insert is not to be used there because of the higher current draw needed to heat it up. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  8. MK2.5 power socket under armrest faulty?

    Standard Ford socket with a flip cap collar. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/302148357119 To access the socket wiring remove the 2 screws holding the panel at the rear of the console and lift up and back. The wiring block just pulls off. Push the socket out of it's collar or use screwdrivers to lever between the collar and the socket rim. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. F5 nav card in slot but no nav?

    If your screen is displaying the Information tag then navigation is not installed. Totally doable with a few steps. See Bannko for the details & requirements plus read through this thread-

  13. My Ford Touch Lockpick

    I've heard of no compatability concerns tbh. It's worth a shot in my view. As a sideline, you may find this interesting- http://www.focusrs.org/forum/#/topics/3590?page=1 Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
