as this forum is rather slow in answering qs about the galaxy,
do you know if yours is a mk1 or mk2?

try asking here.

im guessing its a mk1 but not sure, ive seen many x reg models with the different headlights and bonnets which mine does not have if that helps.

there goes the million dollar question, do i buy genuine parts? i can get parts for about half price but they wont be genuine, lots of peope use these and have no issues but you never know. and as money is tight it might have to be the way to go!!

many thanks i will take a look tomorrow if im home b4 dark, after reading another thread it sounds simple to remove grill and headlight. is this how rear access is gained if its not that simple, or is it bumper off?

rear brakes, fronts not far behind. handrake travels to top with little effect, manifold as mentioned earlier and headlamp washer. not to mention needs tyres and taxing at the end of this month!! mostly small stuff but builds up to be an expensive game this driving lark!!

good advice will do, the biggest dilema i have with this car is how much time and money to spend whilst i have the question mark over the auto box/poss diff noise. the rest of the jobs are small and probably all diy. im hoping the noise is just like most old fords (and the wife). just whine with age but just keep going!!
