  1. If you leave the (warm) oil dripping in to a pan for a good 30 minutes you will get 99.9 percent of it anyway. don't be so impatient to put the plug back in. Let it ALL drain out.
  2. Some new MOT rules have just been brought in. It may be if a steering wheel originally had an airbag in, it is a fail to take it out, it certainly is a fail is the warning light comes on. don't know the position on taking the fuse out ?. PS: I think a Mk four facelift is what also is called a Mk 3.5
  3. Auto Express give this subject a mention.
  4. A mention on Top Gear's news and auto industry happenings section, where they sit on the chairs together, would work wonders. More than any petition or Forum could do (with respect to posters here)
  5. On other makes of car this happens when it defaults to 'emergency mode' usually when the coolant level it below the lowest safe level. Not sure if it happens with Mondeos, better worth a check though if you havent already. Also i'd check the thermostat. Check all wires to sensor connections. Also is the AC on ? This is sometimes the normal thing if the AC is running. (dont own Mondeo so i dont know) Maybe if its on low its not being noticed. Do you have access to a handheld engine scan sensor, to plug in and see if any errors are flagging ? Sorry for trotting out the obvious things first, but belive me we all sometimes miss checking them
  6. He GAVE you a pop bottle full ?! Wow! thats some generous neighbour. I may have to move in on the other side, :) my Fiesta Mk V trims are dull grey, and even the old peanut butter didnt work :(
