  1. Thanks for the reply the trim itself is damaged as pictured above http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MONDEO-MK3-N-S-PASSENGER-SIDE-A-PILLAR-PLASTIC-TRIM-01-07-/151280485062?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item23390502c6&autorefresh=true hopefully do the trick?
  2. I have a MK3 mondeo I was having a microphone taken out today from a third party head unit, unfortunately the people who were doing it were a clumsy mess forgot half of it and randomly kept snipping wires.... Anyway when I got home my fascia next to the front window on the passengers side fell off from the top and inside it appears to be broken. I will not be returning to the store and I could do with fixing this in the cheapest fashion since I will be selling the car shortly. If I was looking on ebay for this particular item what should I be searching for? Or could anyone recommend some sort of glue to keep it on which may be suitable?
  3. I own a 2005 Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi. I have owned her about a year and currently has around 122k miles on the clock. Since I purchased the car a whole bunch of things seem to keep happening. There are however 2 issues right now: 1) Noisy engine, this is coming from the Aux belt / Crankshaft pulley. 2) DMF is failing, it is grating into the starter motor which I had replaced around 5 months ago. It also noticeably squeaks when I use light engine breaking. I am looking to purchase all the required parts and get a mechanic to replace what is needed. For problem 1 I have so far purchased: Crankshaft Pulley: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/150856526547?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 Belt: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300616403475?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_sacat%3D0%26_nkw%3D300616403475%26_rdc%3D1 I intend to purchase a tensioner also since I hear it could be causing the issues: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Mondeo-Alternator-Belt-Auxiliary-tensioner-Mk3-2-2-2-0-TDCI-Drive-Fan-/140859877567?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&fits=Model%3AMondeo%7CPlat_Gen%3AMK+III&hash=item20cbe728bf For problem 2 I am looking to purchase: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-MONDEO-TDCI-6SP-DUAL-MASS-FLYWHEEL-REPLACEMENT-FLYWHEEL-CLUTCH-CSC-BOLTS-/371122786745?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&fits=Model%3AMondeo&hash=item5668a451b9 Are these the right bits I am looking at, anything else I should be considering? Any advice would be appreciated :)
  4. I have a Ford Mondeo 55 Plate with 105k miles on the clock, since I purchased it everything seems to have gone wrong. A bad decision on my part however most of nastiness has been fixed. Simply put recently it was having issues starting so I have had just got the starter motor replaced, the mechanic has said the DMF is on the way out and the starter motor was full of loads of metal filings. The new starter has a plastic housing protecting the bit which matters so he said it would not have further problems with the metal getting inside *however* I can hear a slight squeaking coming from inside the engine and I suspect it is about to go or going to go at some point soon potentially causing more damage. Do it just let this happen or should I be pre-emptive and get it replaced, the garage quoted me £500 when I asked about the cost of changing it, a full days labour. Any opinions would be appreciated!
