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...??????

What Does This Do?? (See Photo)

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?? Attached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1432919119.423508.jpg   87.51KB   52 downloadsMy guess is that it's some sort of light or rain sensor but I don't have either auto lights or auto wipers on my car!
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

Hi
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 ?
Thanks
Ralph
