  1. Working or not it wont spoil the way the car drives Hope you get it sorted m8
  2. I understand plugging in diag m/c wont invalidate anything but if you start messing with things it'll be there excuse not to pay out it may be worth asking the 3rd party people though
  3. As wayne says sounds like a cv joint
  4. take it back to dealer where you got it, it should still have warranty b4 you have a go at it otherwise you may invalidate the warranty
  5. it was obviously just an oil service then, did you get charged for a full one?
  6. Did you just get the clutch changed or was it the whole kit (clutch,pressure plate,release bearing and slave/master cyl)? I can never remember what 1 is inside the g/box
  7. Mk1/1.5
  8. Its the headlight cover
  9. I'm not sure but there could be a relay as well if there is I would change that too
  10. were there an metal filings or any small metal particles in the old filter? if so it could be your fuel pump going, I had exact same on a 2004 focus tdci it was gonna cost loads so I got rid, I hope in your case its just air but you need to get the codes read first
  11. Get a small jnr hacksaw and cut down the side of the nut cos that track rod end is knackered anyways, its time consuming but i find its the easiest way to do it if you haven't got access to an angle grinder
  12. Stick some forte diesel system cleaner in and take it for a good drive and rev it higher than you would normally through the gears you'll see sum crud come out and it should run smoother and change gear smoother
  13. Has it ever been serviced? the fuses are the same as long as you use same ampage you'll be all right but it looks like you need a good service looking at the state of the plugs I would change the leads as well
  14. Get rid of it cos you aint gonna trust it anymore unless you can find the actual fault and fix it but how much more money do you wanna throw at it
