  1. gear box

    We've got 4 ZSE's in our family, and I'm feeling the clutches ain't too tough on them! Try reversing slowly up a very steep hill and it starts to smell very quickly when slipping it. Having said that, we get no problems under normal driving conditions, just for the OP.. FORD might say your wife has been riding the clutch so be ready for them.

  3. Faint squeeking sound near timing belt?

    Don't exclude the tensioner pulley. You can usually get the required parts as a kit from a decent motor factors, belt/s, tensioner and pump etc but the coolant will also get changed. Ring around some decent independent garages nearby, get a few quotes, maybe see if they're happy for you to supply the bits? Some don't like that because of warranty. I'd say somewhere around £250 - £350. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app

  6. Wheels

    Is anybody else as sad as me, taking my wheels off to wash, Polish and wax the INSIDE (back?) of their cars wheels? I just like the look of a non grubby wheel through the spokes. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  7. Painting calipers

    I did my Hyundai i30's calipers gold. The sliders on my Fiestas were fine tbh, the Black was only a year old. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app

  9. Faint squeeking sound near timing belt?

    Is the car due a cam belt change? If so changing the tensioner and water pump too might be prudent, and get rid of the squeak. Try running the engine with the aux belt off for a few moments and see if you can eliminate that first though. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  10. Painting calipers

    That car is now for sale at Bristol St Motors in Bolton, it's a genuine minter. I've got a "Magnetic" ZS 140 now and I've had the wheels off today for a proper seeing to, gloss blacked the drums (already showing signs of corrosion on a 16 plate with 600 miles on it!) Took the opportunity to clean the wheels and wax them on the back of the rims too. Probably do the calipers gold on this one. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  11. Extras I'm afraid, my wife has the puddle lights and folding mirrors, paid extra for them. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  12. Painting calipers

    Painting the pads isn't the coolest. I stripped my calipers down and reassembled when the paint had dried and lubricated everything that moves (not the braking surfaces though!) with a copper based grease. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  13. My new red edition

    A nice red l.e.d. strip above the glovebox lid and replace the footwell bulbs with some red l.e.d's, lovely welcoming warm glow when getting in or out at night. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app

  15. black edtion, getting new turbo (warranty)
