Thanks Lenny.
Do you think painting the grills gloss black along with the fog surrounds looks better with the moondust silver rather than the grey colour they are as standard?
Great link to guide Lenny.

up to yourself mate,
I personally think they look better gloss black but each to there own taste,
Heres a picture of mine gloss black:

Can you put the St upper grill on a standard bumper?
Where did you get the one you have on your lower grill I think it has a chrome strip around it?
Without changing the whole bumper what's the best looking grill you could recommend just to give it a little better look than standard stock bumper?

yes the upper grill from an ST will fit straight swap,
I had the titanium spec grill comes in two parts from Fordpartsuk.com
I now have the zetecS upper and lower grills fitted had then painted gloss black,
Titanium grill is a nice upgrade,
See the PDF version of my grill change guide it states the part numbers for each grill here's a link:

#391278 Another 1.6 Tdci Turbo/dpf Problem

Posted by Lenny on 29 July 2014 - 09:03 AM

£300 for an intercooler hose? Jeez, the part is only £60, did they use platinum spanners?

+ Ford labour cost :rolleyes:
ive fallen out with my local dealer over cost aswell, service guy broke my pollen filter housing when changing pollen filter then charges me for the replacement filter housing that he broke,
They also snapped a corner off my engine under tray through brute force and ignorance the forget to remove a bolt but insisted all bolts had been removed thus pulling it down with there body weight snapping the corner off,
The final straw was when i had the lowering springs fitted, they tried to bill me for laser tracking alignment even though they dont have a laser tracking machine on site! Or any sort of alignment equipment,
They hadnt even aligned the wheels by eye because the negative camber was out by half an inch,
as you can see in this image taken just after leaving ford,
Notice the excessive negative camber bottom of wheel sticking outwards leeds to excessive wear on inside of tyre,



Never will i go back to ford dealer again pure cow boys, they don't share a Passion for ford, they share a Franchise business just happens to be Ford branded garage, they need to pay ford X amount per month to maintain the license so they fleece me and you in order to keep themselves in employment,
Dpf internally removed, egr blanked, purchased a haynes manual and will do oil services myself only out source a reliable independent mechanic to service the brakes and mechanicals should a problem arise in the future.

#391163 Another 1.6 Tdci Turbo/dpf Problem

Posted by Lenny on 28 July 2014 - 09:34 PM

off on a tangent but how much of a pain in the !Removed! is getting to that oil filter Lenny? it looks like Ford found the one of the most awkward places to put something that needs lots of attention much like dismantling half the front end to get to the the EGR valve!
ive been using FORscan to help push forward my paranoia on the DPF, ive got about 3K  before it reckons its full, happy days.
it'll be gone before xmas one way or another.
edit: Ha, tad harsh on the naughty word list FOC! ;)

its a Citröen Peugeot engine mate most economical engine in its class so ford bought some 1.6HDi called them 1.6TDCi and here we are :lol:
Cant beat em join em,

Anyways changing oil filter,
Remove airbox, hose between airbox and turbo,
28mm socket to remove oil filter housing,

Then replacing oil filter gotta remove top bolt and loosen bottom bolt on the intercooler pipe to allow the lip of the oil filter housing sit back in to the engine block,
Does take a bit of fiddling shes no toyota :lol:

Maybe try some/lots of WD40 to loosen it up. My front wipers were a nightmare to remove. Good luck :)
