  1. Getting more and more frustrated with my Mondeo

  2. I have an 05 Mondeo 2.0 TDCi and my sidelight bulbs both need replacing. I have searched this forum and also Googled to see if I can get answers elsewhere, but cannot. I need to know how you can get at the sidelight bulbs. Everything I have found through searching is about getting the light cluster out. This is no problem. However, once out, I remove the back of the side light and just can’t get in to get the bulb out. I am a little weary of sticking screwdrivers and such things in and doing some damage. What is the easiest way to get to it? Thanks
  3. Clutch Vibration

    I haven’t a clue to be honest. It was all done by a local garage. They sourced and fitted it. Sorry I can’t help
  4. Clutch Vibration

    To be honest, it just feels like any normal clutch. Remember that before the conversion, my clutch was vibrating heavily, so to compare it with that, it is always going to seem good. So far, it seems like it was a good idea, providing this is not contributing in some way to a new problem I have, with a whirring noise after the engine fires up. It certainly feels fine
  5. If it is, is that a simple adjustment of some kind, or could it get expensive?
  6. I have a 2005 Mondeo TDCi and have had various starter and DMF issues since buying the car. I had the starter replaced about 6 months back and the DMF replaced by a solid flywheel more recently. Now, I am having more problems. When I turn the key in the ignition, the engine starts immediately, but them immediately makes a worrying noise, before I have let go of the key. The best way I can describe the noise is this. If you have ever tried turning the ignition when the engine is already running, you often hear a kind of grating noise. This sounds just like that.
  7. Clutch Vibration

    Well, it finally got too much and I got a new one put on. I had a solid flywheel converter kid put on there and it now drives much better :)
  8. Clutch Vibration

    I think you're spot on. I went out for lunch today and when I got back in, the starter motor didn't want to know! It was just making a buzzing sound. My mechanic says it is likely that it is just dirty, from dust caused by a problem with the DMF, which he says is a regular thing. It can be cleaned up, but is likely to be a very temporary fix, so if that is what the problem is, it looks like I'll be getting a new clutch and maybe starter motor to boot. Ouchie :)
  9. I was just wondering if other people have experienced an issue I am having. If I rest my foot even gently on the clutch, it vibrates quite heavilly. More recenely, when I press the clutch, it vibrates and causes quite a knocking sound from within the engine. Is this a common issue? Is it a case of getting a new clutch? If so, how expensive is this on Mondeos? I have an 05 Mondeo 2.0 TDCi Ta
  10. Breaks rubbing?

    I have a Mondeo 2.0 TCDi LX, which I have only had for a short time and one problem seems to exist with it. While driving, quite often, I get a low pitch whistle, accompanied by a vibration in the steering wheel. If I break hard for a second or so, it goes away, but often then returns shortly afterwards. Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be? Is this a comon issue with Mondeos? Thanks
  11. Just a quick hello from me. I have never owned a Ford before, believing them to be pretty boring, which I think was a pretty fair assumption in years gone by. Recently, I decided I wanted to get a Diesel and the more I looked, the more I realised that the Mondeo would be a good option. I bought my Mondeo 2.0 TCDi LX 13 last Friday and am very happy with it. It’s a lovely drive, comfortable and economic, though the CD player is not working properly, which is a big problem :-( So, who am I? I am Buzz. I am 40 years old and my hobbies are ice hockey, karaoke and outdoor s*x ;-) My ice hockey (I am a fan of the Bracknell Bees) means I put in quite a lot of miles, which, along with a 40 mile round trip to work, is why I decided to get a diesel.
  12. First of all, hi from a newbie Last week, I bought a Mondeo 2.0 diesel LX 13 on an 04 plate. It comes with the Ford 6000CD in it, but the CD player is problematic, causing CDs to jump on a regular basis. I would like to replace it. I presume that if I want to keep the remote control function, I would need to replace with a Ford stereo. What’s the best way to go about this. Is it best to let a Ford dealer do it? I know nothing about changing stereos myself, so this is not an option. If I were to get a different Ford unit, such as the 6000MP3, would that work with the remote control already in the car, or need a different one? Thanks
