  1. Poor Mpg 1.6 Tdci

    Yes, mine is the same as yours. I drive regular fromHuddersfield to Great Yarmouth which is 206 miles and a good mix of motorway, A-roads & town, same numbers returned.
  2. Ford Fusion Owners?

    Oh Right, thanks for that.
  3. Ford Fusion Owners?

    Hi tr1gg, What are DRLs?
  4. Poor Mpg 1.6 Tdci

    Just a thought, have you reset the MPG indicated? I do this at every fill up & therefore get a good indicator if all is well day to day. Seamo44
  5. Ford Fusion Owners?

    I have 58 1.6+ TDCI . I did have an 09 of the same spec', but was killed by a Taxi driver. This is my 3rd Fusion & I love it. Has been remapped for economy, blanked EGR & a better stereo. I do about 40k miles a year & this car is great at munching miles, returning 60 to the gallon on average.
  6. After market head unit

    Hi there. I have just done the same & yes, I needed an adaptor for the same reason as you. Not sure if I can post a link for you, but this is where I got mine from: https://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/ford-steering-wheel-interface-adaptors.html Good luck. Martin
  7. Anyone Got One Of These?

    I have ordered this part. It would appear there are some differences in Fusion models, as the parts Dept insisted on me measuring the gap between the front seats before ordering. I will take pictures as I fit.
  8. Hi, my 09 1.6tdci had a very similar problem that developed into the engine randomly cutting out. When it began, the engine seemed to just 'skip a beat' for a split second. The cutting out began when the weather got really cold, like down to 1 to 3 celcius. It would restart as normal, but sometimes cut when at the clutch biting point. On diagnostics, there were no faults recorded until the auto-electrician drove it around with the laptop plugged in & it cut out. I give this detail to see if the car in question is similar. The actual fault was caused by a solenoid in the injection unit. Ford quoted £750 for a complete assembly, but my local garage sourced the solenoid from a breaker for £10. Ford stated that the solenoid was unlikely to work as it needed coding to the ECU. This turned out to be Ford !Removed!. The hesitation/cutting out never happened again. However, several days later, the yellow light shaped like a cog inside the Tacho, came on. The engine ran ok, but there was a lack of oomph. The manual states this is a drivetrain error, or something like that. The garage reset the error codes & there hasn't been anything wrong since. Sorry for the essay, I hope that helps.
  9. Anyone Got One Of These?

    Thanks all. Will take a punt on this, me thinks.
  10. Anyone Got One Of These?

    Thank you for that. Does it affect access to the handbrake?

    Hallelujah brother! :)
  13. Can I Swap A Ford Steering Wheel?

    An auto electrician tells me there is no reason why it can't be done. As per usual, it comes down to cost. I shall report any further developments.
  14. Annoying Cabin Rattle

    SOLVED!! You know the plastic cowling where the handbrake comes out, behind the gear stick? Well, if you unclip that & lift it up, there is a wiring harness that is held to the lifted part by two small clips. On mine, the clip on the near side is broken, the harness was rattling around freely. A dab of blue tack has done the job. Listen..........ahhhh, silence from there.
  15. Hi All, I am lucky enough to be given a retrofit Cruise Control kit. Rather than have anything extra added to the steering column, is it possible to swap steering wheels to another Ford wheel that has the CC buttons? TIA Martin
