Injector Seals

25 March 2011 - 07:49 PM

Just thought I'd let you guys know that my Fuzzy is heading in to have the injector seals replaced for the second time. It's only done 74,000 miles and I'm getting a bit worried that it may become a habit. Has anyone else suffered from repeat failures ?

Rear Wiper Motor Troubles

17 January 2011 - 06:45 PM

My rear wiper stopped working the other day so I summoned up the courage to have a look and try to find the problem. To cut a long story short, once I had removed the tailgate liner panel, I was showered with rusty water which was leaking from the motor housing. I removed the motor with the gearbox attached and more rusty water ran down my knuckles. I stripped the assembly down, cleaned out all the rusty water, de-greased the housings in the sink (don't tell the Mrs), re-assembled, re-fitted and I now have a working rear wiper. I'm curious as to how all that water ended up inside the gearbox housing as there was no apparent sign of ingression, I can only guess that it ran down the wiper shaft and didn't run out again.

Dim Lights

23 November 2010 - 10:51 PM

As I live in a rural area I do a lot of driving in the dark. Over the last couple of years I have noticed that the headlights are a bit poor. I've fitted Xenon bulbs and it helps but the lights are still bot as good as I think they should be. Has anyone noticed this or tried anything different ?

Door Panels

01 September 2010 - 01:18 PM

Having invested in a new headunit, I am thinking of replacing the front door speakers but have come unstuck when trying to remove the door panels. I've found a few threads about changing the speakers but the instructions and pictures all seem to be for the USA Fusion and don't help. Does anyone have any hints or will I have to buy the Haynes Big Book of Lies ?
