My New Car

10 posts in this topic

So many problems I had with the mk1 1.6, so i decided, to go for the 2.0 mk1 ghia.

This one came with full service history from Fords, full 12 month mot, and full tank of petrol, all for the small sum of £695.

The only thing am not happy about, is it has no heated seats.

Up by my battery, i have noticed one of these in pic, I know what it is (A RADIATOR switch) but why on earth would it be there, its plugged in to its socket i.e wire, but just dangling there.

Rad fans work, heater works, it does not over heat.

It is its in mint condtion, and drives really nice, just got to find out why that rad switch is hanging by battery.

The only thing i have done to it is steam clean engine and put new rocker box gasket, new plugs / leads, and air filter and oil / filter, and fuel filter.

Looks a nice car and after all you're trouble with the old one it seems a smart move to swap it.

My Mk1 1.8 has the exact same thing and always has since I've had it (4 years in December). Never had any problems with blowers/overheating at all so just left it.
