any idea how much the ford garage will charge to get it fitted to?

be very careful i was done big time 453 they warned me cos my car was a high miler they may have to drop gearbox...which of course they did.....my local garage would have done it for less but the chappie had been put off by doing one that was a pig...and recomended fords...so get the price first.

Have something to contribute?

Well done, my local ford dealers charge 90 to change it. The retaining pin is nearly always rusted to hell and snaps. Most can get it out without dropping the gearbox though. You were just unlucky you didnt pick a dealership where the service guys know their stuff.

Hi These VSS seem to play up a lot, but can somebody explain where they are located on the car? I am dont mind doing a bit of DIY myself if I knew where to look
Thanks

They are located on the gearbox mate. Should be easy to see as it should have a multiplug going to it.
