Whistle On Acceleration Over-Run 2010 1.8 Tdci

18 November 2015 - 08:08 PM

Noticed a faint whistle last few weeks on the acceleration over-run (when you lift throttle to change 1st-2nd and 2nd-3rd)... Noticed large hole in exhaust pipe near back box. Had a new back box set ion of exhaust fitted but the noise is still there! Any suggestions? It's a 2010 1.8 tdci mondeo with 63000 miles.

Mk4 2010 1.8 Tdci Flashing Info Light

27 October 2015 - 06:17 PM

I have a MK4 60 Reg, when I arm the alarm, a flashing red ( i ) information light keeps flashing. I've looked in the messages, no messages. The light goes off when I disarm the alarm, and is not there while driving. Does anyone know what the problem is or if this is normal? I can't be sure whether or not I've noticed this before, despite having the car for 2 years!!

Tuning Chip Boxes????

27 September 2015 - 12:21 PM

Anyone out there had experience of these simple plug-in tuning boxes ? I have a Mk4 mondeo with the 1.8 tdci engine and I can get one of these off eBay for £60-80 and just wondered if they were any good?

Tyres !! Khumo... Any Reviews? Also: Tyre Fitting Rant!!

07 August 2015 - 08:20 PM

Just put a set of 4 "Kumho Ecsta HS51" tyres on my Mondeo MK4 ... 215-55-16W.
Anyone else had experience of these.... ?? Bought on a bit of a whim as needed tyres urgently before a long trip... Usually do a bit more research beforehand though a mate recently put 2 on the front of his Passat Estate and said they were great!
!Removed! local fast fit place managed to badly dent/bend the jacking points at the rear on both sides using a trolley jack!! Noticed once home so I bent them back straight with mole grips and painted some black under seal over the area..... Are the jacking points at the rear of a Mondeo not strong enough to take a trolley jack????

Cure.... Rattle From Rear Hatch Mk4 2010 Mondeo!.

09 June 2015 - 11:27 PM

For about 4 weeks I've been trying to trace an annoying buzz/rattle from the rear hatch area of my mk4 mondeo.... Driving me mad!
First I put rubber tap washers between number plate and body to stop it rattling... Didn't work
Then I put self adhesive foam inside rear hatch interior plastic panels.... Didn't work
Tried foam pads between main rear hatch panel and body near boot catch..... Didn't work
Padding between rear badge area and body...... Didn't work
Checked tools and spare wheel were secure .... Didn't work
Checked for loose items under seats etc ...... Didn't work
Checked exhaust heat shield....... Didn't work

Finally today .... In the boot on near side I removed the felt inspection panel where you gain access to the rear lights.... In there are two fuse boxes... The lids of these (one clear one black) were very rattly. Took both covers off.... Stuck some foam pads inside the lids for a tighter fit .... Put lids back on then wrapped a cable tie (2joined) around whole fuse boxes .. (Bottom to top)..... Finally stopped this annoying rattle. !!!!!!!!!!

Have I missed a common fault here...??????
