  1. Hiya ppl, I haven't on for while, but I'm sure I posted something about mine a while back, just can't find it, anyway. The rear subframe on my Cougar has failed ie, Brackets for stabilizer bar have both broken. It seems that a replacement part is as rare as hens teeth, but that's what I get for owning a car that sold a very low amount, in this country. The question I've got is due to something I heard, to do with the Rear subframe being, it is the same as on a Ford Mondeo, but was it the Mk1 or Mk2. Could anybody advise me please. Cheers, Mike
  2. Happy Birthday Miggles!

  3. Hiya, How is everybody doing... :) I was just wondering where the OBDII connector is on my Ford Cougar, I'm only asking cause I haven't got any manuals to speak of to show me, well that's what I get for getting hold of a car that has only had 12,000 ever made. So no Haynes Manuals, only so called Repair Manuals on Ebay, which are downloaded... and junk. Well enough of my moaning and back to my original question, does anybody have any idea. Cheers, Mike
  4. Very good, they are indeed, but I assume I can adjust it to sort it...
  5. Hiya Me again.. :) I have had a knocking from back end, well I thought it was something to do with the rear bumper as it was extremely loose, so have put new clips and bolts in and it is now tight. But still getting knocking, so I was wondering if it could be the petrol tank, which may be loose and bumping body, the reason I ask is cause, when I filled up earlier today, I put the petrol pump in to fill and the whole tank filler neck came out of rubber seal and went down a bit, I managed to pull it back and it hasn't done it since as I check it now and again. Or Could it be the exhaust bumping the body, although the rubbers seem to be fairly rigid still, it seems the bumping is coming from the rear middle of boot to nearside rear wing... I hope it not rear shocks, cause my ST24 had that problem.. Any suggestions... Regards, Mike
  6. Oh yes, The other thing is, the Exhaust Heat Shielding just in front of the rear wheels has come away from body and is banging on the floor pan, (assuming it is not the actual exhaust, due to exhaust mounts/rubbers are not to slack) do you think it would matter if I took it off completely. Cheers again, Mike
  7. Hiya, Please don't think me cheeky as I have only just joined an all... But I have just recently got hold of my Cougar, it is a lovely car to drive, etc... Just has a few niggles I need advise/second opinion, if you will. Ok, here goes... The Drivers side window is being a pain, you see the block I got it from replaced the window regulator, as it was faulty, but it seems he has not set it right, as it goes down fine, it's just when it goes back up it has a right song and dance, I think the rubber seal is holding it back, judging by the rub marks on glass, although that being said, it guess what I would say is when it is close to were it should be when fully shut, it makes an awful noise, as if the regulator is slipping and not allowing it fully close... Is there a particular way in how I should adjust/set/reset it to make it work correctly. That is if it can be sorted by adjustment. Cheers, Mike
  8. Thanks very much... :) Do we have any owners of Cougars, I hope it not just me B)
  9. Hiya, My name is Mike, I've have owned 4 Fords in my driving life... A crappy blue 1.6 Sierra (my first car, and engine blew), A white Sierra XR4x4 2.8Lt (a taxi reversed into it, got written off :(), A ST24, lovely car (back end went) and now my latest is a 1998 Cougar 2.5Lt V6, a superb car, shame they only made 12,000 of em, it has a few little niggles, which I'll go into later, as need a bit of advise. Well that's about it, apart from, I'm 44 yrs young, Divorced and have 3 lovely Daughters (living with Mum). So Cheers, Mike
