I did this a while ago. Got myself all preped expecting it to take an age and it ended up taking all of 10 mins rom start to finish

Today when I drove it it was daylight. I'm starting to think it's just the privacy glass.

I will take a bit of getting used to tthough.


I might have to invest in a camera for reversing though

Thanks for the info.


My current Mondeo has standard tint glass and the mirror has power lights on it to show it's on.

The MK4 has no lights.


I'll try the open boot idea tomorrow when I pick it up. Hopefully it's just the dark glass causing it.

I bought mine with 110000 miles on it but it had had only 1 owner which was a company car and had full Ford history. I had no receipts with it though.


I had some starting issues after a few months and it all seemed to point to the DMF so I changed it. When I got the old one out I found it had already been changed and it wasn't the issue

After some head scratching it turned out it was a temperature sensor issue and an update was available from Ford and this fixed it.


I also had issues with my radiator fan. The facelift fan variant is only available as a whole unit with control box which is stupid money. I turned to Google and found it is possible to wire in the pre facelift version and it worked a treat and cost pennies.


I picked up a full leather interior with wiring loom and switches for £35, these were from a pre facelift so required a little soldering but now works a treat. I got £15 for my old seats too.


I have now blanked my EGR and I no longer see plumes of black smoke out of my rear view mirror.


Stereos can be a bit of a pig to change. I swopped my factory fitted savnav unit for a Pioneer double din unit and it was a massive job that required the cutting of dash brackets etc.


Great car though and I get a real 48mpg with motorway driving and 40mpg around town

The EGR was cleaned out just after I bought the car and then again about 2/3000 miles ago.


I have seen EGR valves on Ebay for about £50 brand new but I was a bit iffy over the quality
