      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. 52 plate 2.0 tdci mondeo.Hi all. My starter motor stopped working the other day so i took it off to replace it and the starter had actually broke.the wheel that engages with the flywheel had come off its spindle. That's ok you may say BUT the spindle WASNT in the starter still so im assuming its fell down by the flywheel. I've had a poke in there (with the limited room you have) and couldnt feel anything. I have put the new starter on and its starts ok and thought oh well but its been playing on my mind now. Where do you think it would of fell? Into the bellhousing?? Any ideas on how to retrieve it?? Is it likely to cause me any problems?? Any help.or info on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
