  1. Which will also result in it coming back to your MOT station because they passed it and they could loose their ability to perform MOTs. Not a smart idea all round.
  2. That's just an insult to offer that. God lord the manager who would have dealt with me would be in therapy for the next 5 years.
  3. To be honest, Sync 2 isn't all that bad provided you get the latest update installed on it. I'm happy with mine now its on the latest. Yes it's not the most snappy system in the world but it isn't as slow as it was when I first got the car 6 months ago.
  4. Get one from a scrappers. Give it a good clean with carb cleaner and stick it on the car or take your exisiting one off and give that a good clean. It's a messy job but I've done it a couple of times with excellent results.
  5. Yeah... at 88K mine had the injector seal failure and the engine ran way, along with constant DPF issues even with a filled eloys tank.
  6. One piece of advice to add from a macOS user... Make sure you delete off the hidden .filename.mp3 (full stop on the front) files if you do it from a Mac because it will confuse the head unit. My Sync 2 system has kittens if I don't do it.
  7. I'll give this a test tomorrow and let the car run for 5 minutes then as I expect after todays poor attempt at snow, there will be some ice. I'm pretty convinced it isn't working though. Hello Ford warranty again if so.
  8. 100%. The 1.6tdci in the MK2 needs to be looked after like a small child anyway (6000 mile oil changes, check injector seals), but to buy it with these issues and not be told about them. Get it back to them, and let us know what happens. How many miles has it done? I'm wondering if that O2 sensor is in the DPF. Could be a simple replacement of the sensor but it could also mean a new DPF. Edit: the DPF error is a discrepancy in readings between two or more sensors in the DPF so they could well be related to each other.
  9. Might also be worth pulling the EGR off and giving it a good clean if you can on these engines? Its a messy job mind. Did my old Mondeo MK3's a couple of times.
  10. Get it back to the place you bought it from. 5 days and you've got all this going on? Naaaa. They can fix that! Cheeky monkeys! Sales of goods act might be a good one to review as well. They hate that being batted around.
  11. You've just handed your self a ticket to "bye bye's ville". Well done that man. The response you got is because quite frankly these are questions for a dealer to answer. The information is on the Ford pages, and if you're speccing up a new car, those options will be visible when you actually bother to do it. Buying a second hand car? The response would have been more helpful because no two Ford's are alike, and guidance would have been given on what to look for when searching for one with x features. This is the problem these days @alexp999 people expect to be spoon fed everything. I might just add, he's a paramedic. I wonder if he talks to his patients like that....
  12. Now I'm scratching my head. I've got a 2015 Tit X and mine apparently doesn't. Is this something I can turn on in Forscan?
  13. The newest are Sport Contact 5, and I had originally Sport Contact 3 on mine. Depends if you want better fuel economy vs grip or a combination of both really. The Sport Contact's aren't the most fuel efficient nor are they the worst but I'm quite happy with my purchase.
  14. Regarding Ford India/Australia websites.. They've now launched a new designed website and when you login at present there is SYNC version being shown on the dashboard. Shortly after these sites launched this wasn't the case, but if you clicked "Get new version" you'd be told that you'd have to wait for an email from them, and that could take 24 hours. Thus two months later said email hasn't arrived yet. Make of that what you will, but I'm hoping with the launch of these new sites it will also mean the launch of 3.10 as well soon!
  15. Thanks JW1982 I will keep an eye on it and see if it occurs again. Back to Ford again if it does it again for yet another warranty repair.
