Mondeo Mk4 Windscreen Ventilation Problems

09 November 2015 - 06:56 PM

I wonder if anyone can please advise regarding a problem that has just appeared.


My Mondeo Estate is a 2009 2.3 Petrol Auto Ghia and has only done 53k miles. It's a great car (apart from the MPG) and until now hasn't given me any trouble at all.


The ventilation system is the clever digital climate control type with various buttons to press to control the fan speed and ventilation areas.


Today when I tried to direct air to the windscreen I hear a clicking sound behind the dash. It clicked for about five times and then stopped. I tried switching this direction off and the clicking repeated itself. i also noticed that the air was still being directed to the windscreen, despite now supposedly being switched off.


I tried a few more times and the problem remained. Fortunately the air is still being directed to the windscreen so I should not encounter any misting up problems while driving.


Apart from that the car is fine and I'd really like to get this problem sorted providing it's not going to be a ridiculous cost to do so.


Any advice would be very much appreciated.




What A Day! - Mondeo - Key Fob Replacement

21 April 2015 - 07:48 PM

I'm hoping someone can help me.

I generously spent all day in the hot sun cutting down some trees in my elderly parents garden. For someone with a dodgy back I did quite a good job and the garden is now full of branches, trunks etc!

So, I'm about to go home and I put my hand in my pocket to get my car key out.
Guess what. Yes, no key and the accompanying stomach wrenching that goes with that.

Of course my dad would have taken me home to get the spare but the Mondeo was blocking him in! A £18 return taxi journey was therefore needed

So, somewhere in that big garden is my car key and I'm not sure if will ever turn up. Bearing in mind that I've just proved that I can lose a key I definitely don't want to lose the other. I'm therefore looking for the best option to get another key.

If anyone can advise me I'd be very grateful, especially if it doesn't involve being fleeced by the local Ford dealer.

Thanks in advance.
