  1. Hi just changed my rear anti roll bar links in my focus estate 2001 it is the new design where it's like the picture I think I have set them up right the plastic goes between the arm and the roll bar and rubbers go in top and bottom but it's knocking really bad any ideas
  2. Hi people I have a Mondeo 2.0 tdci 2003 plate and the oil light keeps coming on ever so often mainly around 3000 rpm I might change the oil switch tomorrow how easy is it hopefully just unscrew and replace new no oil draining etc any help or advice thank you
  3. The bottom one that passes through the roll bar will hav less thread through than the top
