  1. I used magic this time and in less than 10 minutes the thing was in and they car back together. (Personally I didn't remove the wipers/panels as there is more than enough space).
  2. How did you slide the plate in exactly as I was having a look and one side seems to foul on the block and the other fouls on the fuel filter.
  3. Couldn't sort mine until I read the above, filed down the 2 wedges on the tags and reassembled, works like a treat!
  4. My Ford Keeps Cutting Out

    The simple fixes are always the best and normally the cheapest!
  5. 03/53 Plate Fusion Owners??

    Small flat bladed screwdriver and gently prise them off.
  6. Ford Focus 1.6 Tdci Econetic Chimes

    Mine oddly started working after I replaced my sidelight bulb, flicked on the switch to test and it started to chime!
  7. My Ford Keeps Cutting Out

    The speed sensor is a common fault, either the sensor has gone or the ecu needs a firmware update. It's unlikely to be connected and isn't the cause of the fault but is stored as a code. Isn't the pre-cat O2 sensor a 4 wire heated type on that engine? Either 1 or both sensors are faulty or the engine thinks its at temp before it is which is then kicking the O2 sensor into life which is then making it run lean and cutting out?
  8. My Ford Keeps Cutting Out

    The cat code is probably the cause - not the cat itself, but one of the sensors is probably gone and its probably the post cat sensor, the values whilst the engine is cold are out, I'd hazard a guess that even when warm it's probably not pulling as well as it could do.
  9. Tail Light Out. Advice Please?

    It could be the filament was weak and moving the light unit was enough to disconnect but the break may be so fine you can't see it - Change the bulb and try it. Wiper - Probably just coincidence
  10. They look good, I went for a different style to the foglight versions as I know many people around here are stupid and think that any lights in that area are fog lights so like to flash you to tell you.
  11. Have you done a manual calculation? Eg fill the car and note the the exact mileage, then when it needs filling note the exact mileage and now much fuel went in, that way you can work out exactly how much fuel the car used regardless of the roads etc, then compare to what the onboard computer reckons.
  12. Great guide which is really helpful, 2 suggestions/hints which may help people. I didn't piggy back of that fuse but instead plugged the piggyback connector into the empty fuse socket to the left in the picture, that's also 12v ignition live but doesn't have anything else running of it in my car. I had two blue/orange wires in my headlight harness (though one may be Orange/blue but hard to tell) but my sidelight was in the b/o wire in pin 4 (numbered on the actual connector).
  13. The steering wheels seem pretty hard to come by at the moment, but as I have a 4 spoke wheel anyway would the following fit?
