    If its still in warranty why don't you go to dealer see if you can get it done under warranty if not try arguing your case and see if you can get a free set of mud flaps its worth a go,
  3. Transmission problem

    see if you can get it checked out first, wot I done was I got the clutch kit first myself and all that was needed (I done it over a few weeks not so hard on the pocket that way) then I got the garage to put it in roughly £200 (mines diesel)

  11. Replacement speakers for blown Ford ones.

    If he gets s/hand ford ones they should go straight in and I think some aftermarket ones come with a plate or plastic surround that helps make the speakers fit I got some years ago when I uprated them in a ford Granada (as I say it was years ago ) and i think it might of even been Halfords
  12. Replacement speakers for blown Ford ones.

    well surely if a dealer puts NEW ford speakers in he can get the ones from ford and they should fit your ford, why does he need to know dimensions!? (did you smell any bull poo when he was telling you he needs dimensions)
  13. Replacement speakers for blown Ford ones.
