Finally found a new Richbrook on EBay... £30 new usually, but I was only bidder so got it for £9.99.... Looks and feels good though I expect it to be very cold to the touch first thing in winter!!Attached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1434014411.841118.jpg   63.8KB   24 downloads

In Topic: 1.8 Tdci Hesitates / Lacks Power At Higher Rpms

Hi
My 1.8 TDCI is very fussy with fuel... If I put cheaper supermarket diesel in it doesn't seem to run well and can feel hesitant and down on power. I stick to Shell now (with the very occasional treat to Shell V-Power diesel!) and it runs much sweeter!

In Topic: Mk4 Cruise Control Problem.. Intermittent Refusal To Work.

Just checked with main dealer today. The part number for the Steering Wheel cruise control switches changed in early 2010. My car is a 60 reg so I guess getting 2nd hand ones off an earlier mk4 won't be compatible (despite them looking identical in photos)...... The switches are available separately for each side and the price ..... £95 per side!! Ouch!!

I have kept mine working fine with the occasional squirt of contact cleaner method as I described earlier. I guess at some point I will need to replace but holding off as long as possible. Anyone know how much a replacement set cost from a Ford main stealer?? I had the chance to buy a used set on EBay for 99p but forgot to bid (doh!!), but I've seen them elsewhere on eBay for £100-150 used. Not sure if I would 100% trust a used set in case of same problem (though I guess I should have had a punt for 99p)!!!!

Ahh I see. So do I assume it adjusts the intensity of the aircon depending on the intensity of the sunlight??
