Hi all,


Is anyone breaking up a 2004 mondeo in the Northamptonshire area? my dad's had a prang in his and the front looks worse for wear, not 100% sure what we'll need but definately a bonnet, both front wings, front bumper, passenger headlight assy, and radiator, I'll update the list as we pull it apart and discover what lies beneath! Also, any hints on how to get the bonnet open as it won't open using the key hole behind the badge!

Cheers,



Peter

Sweet, thanks,

The bonnet is pretty well folded, I can see where you mean, its folded and moved enough that if all else fails I can remove it from its hinges and improvise from there, I'll have a butchers at the link you suggested, once the bent panels are off it wont look as bad as it does at the moment!

I looked on ebay and there is indeed a lot on there, parts from ford arent too expensive either, the damage isnt as bad as I first thought, the bonnet lock is intact, it was largely the creased bonnet, demolished grille and headlight that made it look terrible! The big repair job starts tomorow though, removing all the wonky bits and seeing what else is needed. Something ive just thought though, where is the air conditioning intercooler mounted? Is it in with the radiator?

Cheers,


Peter

May well be, just going of what my dad said, he asked about an air conditioning intercooler, I thought intercoolers were used on turbos, it probably is the heater matrix and would explain the lone metal pipe which doesnt seem to go anywhere as the heater runs off the cooling system! I haven't taken the bumper off yet so cant see where it goes!

It is a petrol, I'll try not to disturb it when i remove the radiator, apparently theres something air conditioning related I have to be careful of mounted behind the rad as well.

yea aircon rad but if front panel is ok no need to remove however if you do then you need to undo the powersteering cooler pipe u might lose bit fluid so if you got a latex glove to put over end of pipe while you put it through front panel it be ok.then just top up reseviour afterwards simples

Yep, its pretty well in the way at the moment, i've used the old glove over open pipe trick while changing brake calipers before, the most fun part will be the wings, we thought they were welded at first but apparently its only filler thats been painted over, theyre a complete nightmare to get off whichever way you look at it! I'd forgotten how difficult road cars can be to get apart, way more complex than racecars at least!

oo yea i bet lol.best thing to take wing liner off completely and put it on last after fitting the bumper it will make it easier to get at the three bumper bolts.but its easy to do anyway
