  2. Hi I have a ford mondeo st200 and I would like to change my head unit from factory to double din. I believe that the factory unit is only 1.5 din so would need to do some cutting to the dash. Has anyone else done this or have photos. Please any advise/ help would be greatfull Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  4. A brand new one is 60 pound plus vat. And uncle is a mechanic so prob will get him to change it. How hard is it to change a radiator? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  5. the mileage is 88 thousand. I had booked the paint work to be done. when i bought it. a family friend is going to do it.. but obviously i wasn't going to have it done if the head gasket had gone. i bought the car for £1000. so hopefully a good purchase.
  6. How long you had her, bought my first one a week ago,
  7. have been a bit worried my coolant kept going down and after reading all these posts on here i thought the worst.. I had bought a bad un. so after a few days of worrying I thought to bite the bullet and get the coolant pressurized to see where the coolant was going. my beloved has been in the garage all day and when the phone call finally came. I was told "you better brace yourself for this" followed by a long pause " you have a leaky radiator". Im so relieved as i really thought the worst. that will teach me to self diagnose a problem. So now she is booked in for Monday to have all the scratches taken out, basically more than half the car is being re sprayed. when that is finished I will get the radiator replaced but so pleased its not the head gasket! Here is a few pics now i have finally figured how to post them. will put more up once it has been resprayed
  8. think i have finally figured how to put pics up on here here we go
  9. Just got car back from garage. There's a leak in the radiator. £60 plus vat and fitting. Def better than head gasket. Now I'm a happy man. Car can now go in Monday to have the key scratches taken out. Basically more than half the car is having a respray. Very excited to having it looking mint. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  11. There's nothing in there the oils clean. It's gone into the garage as to pressurise the system. Should know bad or good by tomorrow. Would be a shame if there's a major problem as it is a lovely car. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  12. I bought last week an st200 estate. Am having a bit of a worry about the head gasket after reading a lot of posts on this forum. Hope I haven't bought a bad un. Am finding that my coolant level is going down. Also checked back at the old mots that were given to me when I bought this car. The last mot mentions nothing about an oil leak. But the two mots before that says on the advisory's that there's an oil leak don't know why I hadn't noticed that. There is no cloudiness in the oil and can't smell exhaust fumes in the coolant. There's no ticking in the engine and the car drives really well. Am going to try and get the car on a ramp this weekend and look to see if any leaks. I'm not a mechanic please any advise would be welcome Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
