    C MAX 1.6 ZETEC
  1. Hi , there are 4 slots at each corner of the stero that u slide ford special tool no. gv3301 into then slide it out , not taken one out myself in this model but i would think some improvisation may be possible without the tools or if u can get to a motor factors u should be able to buy some good luck , Russ
  2. Hi , dont use anything that puts a shine on the dash , i clean the top with warm water and a bit of washing up liquid and the rest with mr sheen , does as good a job as any car cleaning products and a lot cheaper . If you use tyre cleaner stuff they tend to be shiny and will make the glare on the screen worse .
  3. Iv had my 07 c max for 2 and half years with no problems
  4. Hi , Does any one know the size of the number plate bulbs on my 07 face lift model c max ? i cant find it in the hand book and want to up grade to led"s , Thanks Russ

  6. Hi , I GOT A SPACE SAVER OF EBAY LAST YEAR FOR MY 07 C MAX ZETEC ITS A 16" OFF A MONDEO , YOU CAN GET THEM OFF EBAY FOR AROUND £30 PLUS POSTAGE . DONT FORGET A JACK AND WHEEL BRACE , FOR THESE GO TO A SCRAP YARD I GOT MINE FOR A FIVER OFF A EARLY 90"S ESCORT BUT MOST FORDS ARE THE SAME . YOU WILL RECOVER THIS COST THE FIRST TIME YOU GET A FLAT COS ONCE YOU USE THE CANNISTER YOUR TYRE IS SCRAP AND A NEW ONE IS REQUIRED AS WELL AS A NEW CANNISTER !!!!!!!!!!
  7. p.s. just a thought , is your key one you have had cut ? if so will it start the car ? my mate bought 2 spare keys from a motor shop but they dint tell him they would not start the engine cos there was no transmitter inside them .
  8. Hi on our c max if the key is used there is a delay before the alarm goes off to allow the key to be put in the ignition . dont know how long it is delayed for but if the key is put in the alarm is disarmed .
