Can I ask why you would want to drain the fuel?


Good luck with your search.

From past experience with other cars, most use the cheap alternative fuels and though I don't blame them, though overtime I have noticed issues with higher performance. I'm a regular cleaner when it comes to oil and will be switching to premium fuel once drained, hopefully giving engine a new lease of life as it has done with the Ghia X.

Key is that worn, no possible way of reading.


The trouble is, if I replace barrel I'm also going to have to replace door locks as well.


I swear this car has caused me more trouble than my last one lol.

You can't make out what the code is from the Key, as there is no code on the key.


As for ignition barrel, if that went I can get around it without any problems (Always carry tools for that sort of thing).


The issue I have, is I don't want to have to remove one of the locks to dismantle it and get the code from the barrel pins.


Is there anyway I can find out who the original dealer was, as one bit of advice I was given was that they might have the keycode down on record (this came from Ford).

Don't drive with a damaged water pump, I did this on an old mk5 escort and regretted it when it went fully. As it went in 2ft of snow and damaged the belt, so cost more to replace.

is that the correct kit for a mk4 2.2 tdci?

According to their site yes (though slightly miffed the heat shield isn't included).
