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...??????

Can anyone tell me please what this strange thing does on top of the dash of my 2010 mk4 mondeo zetec is and what it does??

I've had the car for a year and half now and have always wondered!!

Gearknob Mk4. Tatty And Silver Trim Peeling And Sharp. Removal Help ??

11 May 2015 - 08:28 PM

Hi all

My gear knob has peeling silver paint around the edging trim, and has a sharp edge to it. I want to replace the gearknob but need to know how it comes off. I would have thought it would just unscrew but I've tried and it won't move (unless I'm not trying hard enough but I didn't want to force too hard and break anything)
Can anyone advise how to remove my knob (ooo er missus!!!).... Does it simply unscrew and I wasn't trying hard enough or is there another way??

Foc App Not Sending Push Notifications

29 April 2015 - 10:19 PM

I have the FOC app on both my iPad 2 and iPhone 4s. I used to get push notifications on these devices if anyone had replied to my posts, but this seems to have stopped (get email but no push notifications)
Checked settings both in app, and phone and notifications are "on"
Anyone else experiencing this or can help me resolve it ?

Faulty Parking Sensors On Mk4 2010 Model.

19 April 2015 - 07:08 AM

Got a parking sensor fault (long beep, flashing dash light on button then system switches off). I have 3 questions:

1 are the sensors same on front and back? There are sellers on eBay selling "ford parking sensors" but I have been told they are different part numbers depending whether they are front or back, and how high they are off the ground!!!???

2 how can you tell which sensor is faulty without access to a laptop?

3 Anyone know the correct ford part numbers?

Thanks everyone out there
