  1. Hey there im really struggling on finding custom parts for my 98 fiesta finesse. In particular I have been looking for a short shifter to fit my gearbox but I cant seem to find what I have so I can look for a new short shifter that will fit. Can someone help me?
  2. HELP! AUX BROKEN.

    Hello people, I'm new to this. So I'm unsure if I am posting in the right area. I have recently purchased a Ford Mondeo 2010 MK4 model and was wanting to use the aux that is in the glove box, but unfortunately the previous owner has broken his jack off in the port. I tried using a magnetic screwdriver to try pull it out but that did not work and I have tried many youtube video ideas, but all ultimately have failed. So what I was wanting to ask, because I cannot seem to find the answer anywhere online is how do I take the glove box out to examine the extent of the damage to the aux port/do I even need to remove the glove box. Can anybody please help!!!???
  3. Aircon issues. Please help! I have a MK4 Mondeo 2012 plate. I recently had the condenser changed due to a bird strike. Condenser was changed and the system regassed. The aircon was working fine, blowing approx. 5 C at the vent. Everything was working fine until the period of hot weather. I was driving, aircon working fine, stopped and parked for about 15 minutes, when I restarted, the aircon was blowing outside air. I took it back to the garage that carried out the work and the pressure in the system was just above 12 bar, they also could not drain the system. I carried out some investigation. When I press the aircon button on idle, there is no drop in revs The compressor fails to engage The 15A fuse is good The cooling fan engages as it should when the engine gets hot. There are no codes on my OBD reader On the aircon self-test (I have the touch screen) it has 2 error codes 0xff and 0x4f, I have no idea what they mean or where I can find that info out without paying Ford. I drained a bit of gas to see if it had been overfilled (high pressure switch) What should I do next and / or what do people think is wrong?
  4. I am in the process of replacing my Mk3 Mondeo estate with a Mk4 estate, probably a 2014/14 plate. I need to fit roof bars and a roof box to it so will get one with roof rails. Having looked at a few it seems the later Mk4s come with solid rails that you can't get your hand under. I presume earlier Mk4s came with rails like on my Mk3 with the gap underneath. Some googling suggests that these solid rails that run the full length of the roof are just cosmetic and not load bearing, however they have a small lip on each side suggesting a suitable roof bar foot would grip it. The design change within the life of the Mk4 makes buying roof bar feet a bit confusing. Please can somebody with a late vintage Mk4 with solid rails confirm that you can get roof bars to attach to it, and if so what bars did you use. The solid rails look like those in the this photo.
  5. I have just noted a strange fault with my central locking. The deadlocking on one side of the car has stopped working ? The doors lock and unlock but wont dead lock with the second press of the key fob. Anyone have any ideas as to what might be going on ?
  6. Hi guys. I want to buy a mark IV Mondeo, but i dont know which diesel engine is the best in realibility. I saw the 116 hp, the 131hp and the 140hp. What problems can appear ?Please help me. Thank you.
  7. Mk4 weird paint issue

    when i bought my car a few years ago i did mention this to the dealer but he was stumped aswell, on both front doors just under the back part of the door handle it appears as though there are drip marks i have tried to capture this on my phone but the images dont show it very well. You can only see them in certain light i have tried polishing them but doesnt alter it. Do you guys have any ideas?
  8. Started car in the morning to get petrol as it was very low. idles poorly when cold so needs a bit of revving. It stalled. Went to restart but the key is very worn and I could not get the steering lock off. Used the spare care instead. But it did nothing. gave up. I thought it was the starter motor and began removing it to have a look but thought about it and realised it must be immobilised as I tried to bump start it earlier and got nothing. put 6 litres of fuel in just in case. put jump leads to another car to make sure battery was fully charged. tried the master key again and eventually got it to turn in the ignition. starter works. but not firing. just turning over. tried the spare and nothing. tried turning it on and off 5 times or so and the red lights stop flashing and the car turns over with the spare. but take it out and back in and it doesn't. red light was flashing constantly until i managed to get the master in. no red flashing lights with master now. spare gets code 13. whats going on? UPDATE- I think it was a coincidence when turning the spare 5 times or so and the motor turning. The master was on the same key ring and i think it just happened to swing close to the barrel and De-activated the immobilizer. I have tape the master to the barrel now and can use the two spares to at least turn over the motor. Pulled top fuel lines from the inlet manifold. both pushing through fuel when trying to start. pulled no.1 spark plug HT lead and held it close to rocker cover whilst starting and saw a spark. So NOT immobilized. CPS wire that runs on top of the rocker cover was totally shot to bits. crumbling as soon as i touched it. bare wires were touching rocker cover and shorting themselves. unraveled them and tested but still not firing. UPDATE2- Tested all for spark plugs and got a spark from all of them Pulled fuel injection rail. cranked engine and got a fine spray of fuel from all four injectors. What next? Could this be a timing issue?
  9. Fiesta mk4 sound system

    Hi everyone, Bought my partners a r reg fiesta lx and am now looking to get rid of the horrible cassette radio and speakers. Want to add speakers into the boot (doesn't have them but will mode it too) Anyone got some advise for parts? Looking for 4 speakers that have tweeters built in because the ones in the car are broken. An amp Radio that has the option for bluetooth and rica for front, rear and sub Looking to add a sub later on not too bothered at the minute! Thanks Jon.
  10. Hi all. I hope someone can give me a piece of advice regarding swapping over the stock grills on my 58 mondeo estate to the honeycomb style of the titanium x sport. I can seem to find the top grill (link here) but I'm not so sure about the bottom one (link here)as the lip of the titanium x is different from mine. Also I'm open to other suggestions of other mods that I can to (keeping it subtle)
  11. Hi, Some dozy prat * reversed my Mk4 into a rough stone wall and mangled the top of the tailgate. Looking around for salvaged spares I can only find the original Mk4 design, not the 2011 / 60 plate refresh with the different shaped rear lights etc. is the bare metal part still physically compatible? I'm given to strongly think it is, and it's only the plastic moldings and light clusters that are different, but would appreciate confirmation from anyone that knows for sure before I buy an old one and move the plastic across once fitted.. Thanks! * yeah... me...
  12. Hello! My name is Matej from Slovenia and I currently own a 2007 FIesta ST which I dumped a whole lot of money into to make it quicker and more stylish. I wanted a NA Fiesta that looked special so I spent a lot of money building it and bringing out the HP. I do not mind it either, but it was my first project and I have made a lot of mistakes that cost me a lot of money. I did learn though. Simplicity is key, stock look draws far less attention, suspension and power is more important than looks. RIght now, I am in the process of selling my MK 6.5 ST and when I do, I would like to go on to the next project. Do it right this time. Money wise, project cars are a bottomless trap hole and considering this could end up being the third car I want it to be cheap this time around. My idea was to buy a basic MK4 and go from there. But then I thought how much more like a modern Ford the MK5 looks with those lights. So what I want to do is: Ford Fiesta MK5, 3 door, 1.3 engine -no power steering -no AC -no radio -swap the front seats for more supportive aftermarket lightweight seats, lose the rear seat and put a nice carpet in instead -aftermarket steering wheel -swap the engine for Puma 1,7 125HP Duratec and modify it -good air intake -bigger throttle body -full aftermarket exhaust -mild camshafts -a remap -swap the suspension and brakes for Pumas and modify them -add front and rear anti-roll bars -add Poly Bushes and mounts -lowering springs (maybe coilovers) -light set of rims, most likely something from OZ Racing (still 15") -wide tires (195 instead of 155?) -wheel spacers if needed -Zetec S bumpers -custom wider wheel arches to fit the wider wheels I will be buying used parts, conversion parts, the 2 cars I need are under 500€ both. I estimate total cost with labor between 2 and 3 thousand euros which I am willing to invest for a car like that. I am turning to you good people to asses my idea and give criticism. I also need you to share your experience with certain things I have not done research on yet or couldn't find any good answers. 1.7 Duratec Engine from Puma: 1.7 Puma engine and transmission should fit into the MK4 bolt on. Is that the case with MK5 as well? Will any modifications be required? Camshafts. Does any other engine share the same camshafts as the 1.7? Exhaust manifold. Does any other engine share the same exhaust manifold? Throttle body. I would go for a 5mm wider throttle body (maybe 10mm if it fits), are the holes for the bolts same as on other (2.0 litre or bigger) engines? Wiring. A 1.3 engines wiring probably won't be good. Do I remove the entire wiring for the entire car and swap it or is there another way? Transmission. Is it in the exact same place, so the gearbox lever comes into the cabin in the same spot? Opinions on a short shifter? Suspension: I read that the suspension from Puma should fit perfectly too. I think I will be able to figure out how to swap them. Is there anything Puma/MK5 FIesta specific I should know? Are there aftermarket anti-roll bars for front and rear of this little car? Do any of them come standard? Should I go for coilovers (used) or just lowering springs? I am not going too low. 25-30mm only. Opinions on home made strut braces for front and rear opposed to aftermarket parts? Puma should have rear discs. Will the braided lines from Puma fit exactly on to the MK4-5 Fiesta or do I need new lines? I plan on keeping ABS and power brakes from Puma if it has them. ABS is important :) How wide should I go with the tires?
  13. Mk4 Project!

    Hi Everyone - So alongside my 64 plate, i now have an old R reg mk4 as a little project for my partner. I have couple of questions: Can i add the boot release button, my friend has it in his mk5 and it doesn't work so any ideas on that also? Think it's a fuse but yet again i cannot find a diagram that matches the fuses boxes, i don't want to drop the fuse box for no reason. Where can i find a god damn owners manual for the fuse numbers? apparently the interior one you can drop it out and some more fuses "appear". Mine is 1998 and his 2001 so i assume they should be quite similar, but neither of us have an owners manual. Unless i can get one from ford? Cambelt and clutch easy to change? I also was wondering if anyone managed to find a Haynes manual on the internet? I swear i have one at home but i cannot find it! Thanks everyone, help is very much appreicated!

  15. Mk4 Escort bonus engine change?

    I have a late '88 mk4 1.3 bonus escort which is tremendously slow and doesn't enjoy hills and the like. I was contemplating putting a 1.6 from an xr3i or something similar in it and was wondering if the rest of the car would be able to cope? I am no mechanic whatsoever so any help would be much appreciated!!
  16. I thought I'd share what my problem was and how it was resolved.I have a 1990 Mk4 Escort Eclipse and when the dipped beam was turned on the o/s light went to side light only but the n/s dipped beam worked.I tried all the earths I could find. One near each headlight - brown wires. Two on the o/s A pillar behind the speaker. The rear lights. Earths were not the problem.I tried the two white relays in the fuse box towards the rear of the car. Not the problemI lifted the fuse box expecting a corroded connection. Not the problemI tried three different switches. Not the problem.The resolution to the problem was a BLUE RELAY that is located just above the pedal box inside the car. It is a 5 pin relay with the numbers 866614K083AA 41212 4RD003520-34 40/35A 12V.I'd like to find a spare relay but can only find one used one on the bay of death for £25. Does anyone know of a supply of new ones cheaper?
  17. '57 plate 1.6 petrol Mondeo Mk 4 (owned fro new, no other problems, serviced, low mileage for year) refuelled 69 litres from nearly empty which then refused to start at the Sainsubury's petrol station. Just lurched 1 metre forward and apart from 2 hiccups, nothing. Towed it home and have discovered (by taking fuel line off in engine) that there is no fuel pressure. Engine turns but will not fire. Squirted brake cleaner into air cleaner and whilst squirting it would fire, suggesting electrics and engine ok. Central fuse box F22 20amp fuse on main board ok although it looked as if it had been hot as the edges of the legs were blackened. Green flag attended and their generic OBD scanner apparently showed no fault codes. So some help please.... 1/ Is there an inertia cut out on this model and, if so, where is it? 2/ What other devices can stop the pump from operating and how can I check them? 3/ Is there a complete system diagram anywhere such that I can evaluate the items that may be stopping the pump from running and how the power routes to the pump? 4/ Is the pump only accessible after lowering the tank? 5/ What is the layout on the pump and what can I check? Answers and any other advice very much appreciated.
  18. Hi, I have been advised by a Ford garage the EGR valve on my 2010 Mondeo 1.8tdci can only be replaced as a complete unit with the inlet manifold... at a ridiculous cost. However, I have found a store on eBay, transitpartsuk, who sell the valve separately. Now, my question is can the valve be replaced by a DIY mechanic like myself without having to remove the inlet manifold and without any special tools except a torx bit for the 4 retaining bolts? The valve is position at the top rear of the engine bay and looks like all the bolts are accessible... is this just a way for Ford to make more money? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  19. Hey guys, Which is the best air filter for my car? Here's what I found on ECP but im unsure which one would be best, I dont want to buy poor quality products. All help is much appreciated. http://www.eurocarparts.com/air-filters?awc=3997_1445019491_b52f9784e48398367a454be5928154dc&utm_source=Skimlinks&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_term=ecp+homepage&utm_content=awin+traffic&utm_campaign=Sub+Networks Thanks :)
  20. Hi all, I have a 2011 Titanium X Mondeo which I have just purchased. However, an annoying fault has just surfaced with regards to the Speed Limiter and Cruise Control functions. Last Saturday, the Speed Limiter function stopped working all of a sudden. I had been in my car for about 2-3 minutes, set it to 30mph, and was approaching some lights when it disengaged automatically. I pressed the button on the wheel to switch it back on but nothing happened. I tried long press, short press, hard press etc, but nothing. The cruise control button also did not respond I noticed. It stayed like this for well over an hour, and I only realised it had come back to life when I tried it later on in the journey. I mentioned this on Wednesday to my local Ford garage but was told that it was very hard to diagnose if they can’t see the fault. As I drove off, I set the limiter and the fault just happen to appear again and the same thing happened… I approached some lights after about 2-3 minutes and it dropped out and would not come back to life. I turned round and went straight back to the garage while the fault was still present. One of technicians ran some diagnostics on the car and found (I think he said) a communication fault to do with the instrument control panel, but he wasn’t able to identify if it was software related or even just a loose connection. I believe he then cleared the fault on his computer so that it showed clear on his laptop and all working, but the actual fault of the Speed Limiter and Cruise Control buttons not working, was still present. I have attached a screenshot of what his computer said. The actual fault remained present until I got home. So maybe what his computer showed was not the Speed Limiter fault maybe? Half an hour after I got home, I had to go out again and low and behold, everything was working ok again. The buttons weren’t working when I parked up, but had come back to life once I had got back in the car. So there is a definite intermittent fault somewhere, but from what I understand, it will quite difficult to diagnose and was certainly not a fault the local garage had seen before. Has anyone heard of this before? It has happened a third time now. The only common thing I can link all three times with is that I turned the speed limiter function on within about 2-4 minutes of starting the engine. Do Mondeos need a few minutes to warm up and boot up maybe!?!? I also have the PowerShift gearbox. I have used the function plenty of times in a journey, but on those occasions, I have turned into on later in the journey. It could be purely coincidental, but that is the only common thing I can think of. If anyone knows the answer, then it would be great to hear from you, as my Ford garage are scratching their heads. Thanks, Matt
  21. Hi, I've had this issue for a while now, probably since before Christmas last year, in the winter it really struggled to start, after turning the key the starter would turn the engine over but it would turn over slower and slower but sometimes it would suddenly really pick up pace and fire the engine up. I replaced the battery and it seemed to go away I've been using the car less anyway. Now what I'm finding is still get the slow-ish turnover but also after a drive and the engine is hot/warm when i try to restart the engine just coughs and spluts and rattles and shakes then cuts out, does it a few times but then fires up fine. Here is a video of it happening; https://youtu.be/WkYW0JdpYBU I've read various other posts on forums and there seems all sorts of stories some ending with replacing the starter motor and some relating to DMF. My DMF was replaced about 50,000 miles ago (at 81k, I'm now on 127k) so dont suspect it of being that, so I've ordered a new starter motor. Do you guys think it could be starter motor? And also, does anyone have instructions on how to replace starter motor, its a mk4 2007 ('57 plate) 1.8 TDCi estate. Hope you can help. Thanks Gavin
  22. Hi guys, i have just bought myself a ford fiesta mk4 and the seats in the car is not in the best condition. i am wondering if the mk6 fiesta seats fit into the mk4 fiesta or not ? a mitchell
  23. So this weekend im going with my family to check out some used cars on the market and i've found this Mondeo trend, 1.6 120HP (not much but it will do), has 72.484km which is about 45.000miles, made in 2012, first registration 6/2012, 5 gears and costs 9.988€, about 7.200 pounds. Doesn't really have much of equipment but my parents love this car and i think it's a pretty fair price (im from Slovenia btw) Here are the pics: This car is a big update from our Focus 2003 1.6 100HP with 110,00km (68,000miles). Here on the market it's worth about 1500€(1000gbp) so it's better to get rid of it now so we can still get any money for it, and the rust has started spreading on the skirts that we repaired like a year ago which will hold for about 2 years which is another reason to get rid of it. For anyone curious, here are the pics of our Focus: And one more question, what's the engine like as in fuel economy and reliability on this mondeo? Opinions very welcome. Thanks for reading.
  24. Hi, I changed from the standard lightbulbs to the Halfords own brighter bulbs, which are supposed to look like xenons, after following a few guides on unit removal and refitting, it appears that the lights are pointing too low, it doesn't have self levelling, only the know on the dash with 0-4, it was on zero, as there is no load in the vehicle, what have I done wrong please, or have I missed something, I will mention though, I fitted the bulbs to the connectors first then secured the clip, where as in the videos it states to fit the bulbs in the holes first, is this where I've gone wrong? Thanks in advance
  25. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement fuel pump for a 2010 ford Mondeo 2.0ltr petrol model??????? Cant find one anywhere and my current one has blown up. Happy to do repairs myself just cant find any to replace it with!!!! Used or new. Desperate Mondeo owner struggling. Thanks Steve
