  1. If the gearbox works OK and it is low mileage, sounds like a separate issue, gearbox is at the front, what is vibrating when stationary?
  2. A performance parts shop! http://www.burtonpower.com/ Depends on what you have in mind for a 16 year old banger.
  3. If its the Durashift gearbox you have a number of expensive options, the shifter's have failed or there is a break in the wiring loom. If the shifter loses it's position it will prevent the engine starting.
  4. Had wheel spacers on my old Anglia and a 2 litre Cortina GT engine & gearbox, that's when I found out that drum brakes are rubbish!
  5. Its not where you get them it's who makes them. http://shop.grahamgoode.com/eibach-wheel-spacers-5mm-15mm-20mm-25mm-30mm-ford-fiesta-st150-zetecs-125-14-tdci-01--75095-p.asp
  6. My phone always pairs with the car when I turn the ignition on, but won't complain if the phone is off. How is your system set up, what phone do you have?
  7. For £80 I'd bite his arm off! Oh, and get a receipt as well
  8. Sounds like the clutch release bearing is on its way out. How many miles has this beauty done? Cost: depends where you take it, but budget for at least £450.
  9. £80 to change the slave cylinder is a bargain assuming the clutch plate is not contaminate as Ian says. Nothing wrong with the gearbox, the clutch is dragging hence the crunchy gears.
  10. Petrol or diesel? Could be the impeller has come off the water pump shaft.
  11. Could be the crank seal is leaking oil onto the clutch. Happened to me on one of my Fiesta's at 50K.
  12. If you drive it around town and it is trying a DPF regeneration the fan will come on.
  13. My system went faulty, the front speaker had a short in the coil. The tones are a pointer to the fault. Check the speaker, its behind the coin box by your right knee.
